Our Actors Conservatory offers a comprehensive theatre arts curriculum for those who are honing their craft as professional actors as well as those seeking personal expression.
The History of
Ever since the curtain rose on the EWP stage in 1965, EWP has been nationally recognized for its award-winning presentations of original works, musicals, and classic plays. Through the season, EWP's productions have garnered awards from Theatre L.A. Ovations, Drama-Logue, Back Stage West, L.A. Drama Critics Circle, and L.A. Weekly, for superior playwriting, production, direction, performance, design and choreography. The accolades speak for the theatre company's talented pool of artists and their ongoing dedication to hone their craft and search for excellence.
Beyond the achievement of critical success, however, is the underlying goal to serve potential and ongoing students who seek a space that nurtures, challenges and enhances the creative spirit.
Studio Lab Project
Studio Lab Project is geared towards conservatory students who have
completed at minimum a one year track study with the East West Players
Actors Conservatory. The objective is to give students a real life
experience by giving them the opportunity to apply theatrical skills they
have learned throughout the year in an environment that simulates the
professional theatre process.
"The Studio Lab
Project was an incredible, memorable experience. The process allowed me
to grow so much as an actor. Leslie's role as director facilitated a very
collaborative environment that encouraged each member of the cast to
stretch his or her skill level."
