Total Commitment

 A continuing Los Angeles professional acting workshop right here in Missouri.

Going into our 13th year in the “Show Me State”, Creative Actors continues to be a leader in professionally training people with coaching and mentorship that prepares each individual for a successful career in the entertainment industry.

Coaches Elizabeth Allen and Kelsey David Shryer bring a truly unique background to their coaching style. With professional experience as actors, coaches, casting directors, producers, screenwriters, and directors, Elizabeth and Kelsey lead each individual to their fullest potential as performers and businesspersons.

At the core of everything taught at Creative Actors lies the unique acting technique, The Creative Process. Developed by master coach, Scott-Arthur Allen, The Creative Process expounds upon, yet simplifies, the teachings of Constantin Stanislavski and Sandy Meisner. The Creative Process brings deep realism to artists’ performances with a consistency that is unprecedented.

Whether your goal is to become a professional actor or gain the confidence needed to excel in another career, The Creative Process, paired with the guidance of coaches Elizabeth and Kelsey, you will gain the skills needed to successfully reach your goals.

A Word From The Coaches:

We believe in guiding and coaching our students to their fullest potential with a precise balance of building the person’s confidence and at the same time stretching them to new ranges of their ability.

In addition to coaching you to a new level as an artist, we make it our goal at Creative Actors to teach the ever-changing ways of the modern entertainment industry. In our weekly classes we train our students in the art of performance and acting, as well as mentor each individual on the business side of Show Business.

Do you have a website or profiles on IMDb Pro, Actors Access, Casting Networks? Do you have professional headshots or a professional demo reel? Are you ready to submit a professional video audition today?

Don’t worry! It can all sound very overwhelming. The first step is to simply start training as an actor somewhere in a professional studio. So come watch a class and we would love to hear your goals as a person and artist.


Elizabeth and Kelsey
