The Marin Actors' Workshop

The Marin Actors’ Workshop weekly scene/monologue acting class. Everyone, at every level is welcome.

* Saturday mornings, 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

After a two year COVID hiatus, the North Bay’s leading acting class is back with more to offer the aspiring actor than ever before.

The Marin Actors’ Workshop is a weekly scene/monologue acting class taught by veteran actor and broadcaster, Terry McGovern. MAW is, essentially, the teaching arm of the Novato Theater Company. Classes are held on the NTC stage.

The scene/monologue class focuses primarily on acting on the stage. But every five weeks or so, we take some side trips to other aspects of the craft. In those cases, we’ll devote the entire class to improvisation technique or audition preparation, or acting for the camera, or the basics of voice-overs. These courses are designed to give our actors an understanding of all facets of acting.

One of MAW’s unique features is that we record the actor’s work in class to be watched later on this website. These video recordings are invaluable in showing strengths and weaknesses in the actor’s performance.

Terry McGovern is the founding director of the Marin Actors’ Workshop. “I started this class back in 1997 in a dance studio in San Rafael, California. In the ensuing 25 years, hundreds of actors have made MAW their place to study the craft of acting.” Everyone, at every level, is welcome to join us on Saturday mornings.
