The Flow of Acting/The Power of the Actor:


Executive Producer and LAB founder, Owen Robertson, takes students on a journey that will deepen their craft as well as provide process for a life-long practice as an actor. He combines theories from optimal experience psychology and the Chubbuck technique of acting to give students a unique learning experience that will deepen their understanding of text, character, and emotional connection for any actor at any level along their journey. Through a nurturing collaborative learning environment, Mr. Robertson seeks to help artists grow in their craft by working in small classes focused on growing technique, artistry, and mindset. The result for students is a powerful transformative experience that will deepen their practice as theater artists. Classes are held on Sundays from 6 PM to 8:30 PM for twelve weeks. Class dates are: 5/16, 5/23, 6/6, 6/13, 6/20, 6/27, 7/11, 7/18, 7/25, 8/1, 8/8, & 8/15. Cost for this class is $400, payment plans are available.

LAB's PROJECT GREENLIGHT: This successful program began in the summer of 2020. In this program you will learn how to write a successful first draft of your play/screenplay and have the opportunity to pitch your idea to decision makers who can help bring your project from an idea to a fully produced project. Just ask Hector Melendez-Figueroa, playwright for our May production of The Wendy House, he is a graduate from this program. To learn more click here.

"Flow as a state of complete immersion in an activity. While in this mental state, people are completely involved and focused on what they are doing."

You guys know I have been promoting my play, The Wendy House, premiering next week, but I wanted to take a moment to promote Lab Theater Project classes.  This is very important to me and I have been asked where I learned to write.

The Wendy House wouldn't be where it is now if it wasn't for LAB's Project Greenlight.  Yes, I took me 6 years to write The Wendy House, but LAB's Project Greenlight was the sprinkles to take it to that next level.


I have never been around inspiring writers and amazing, truly amazing instructors 'til this day.  I hold each and every on e of them in my heart.  It was the most incredible inspirational class I have ever been in. 


If you want to be a writer, then I truly recommend to take these classes, and also have acting classes.
