About Beverly Hills Playhouse Acting School
Established in 1978
Milton Katselas began his directing career in the 1960s with the original off-Broadway production of Edward Albee's The Zoo Story. From there he went on to direct over sixty plays and eight feature films.
Milton studied with Lee Strasberg at the Actor's Studio and was mentored by such great film and stage directors as Elia Kazan and Joshua Logan. It was through these influences and his extensive directing experience that Milton ultimately created the technique that is taught at the Beverly Hills Playhouse.
Milton was nominated for a Tony Award for Butterflies are Free. Under his direction, Blythe Danner won the Tony Award, Eileen Heckart the Academy Award, and Bette Davis her only Emmy Award. Milton directed such actors as Al Pacino, Gene Hackman, Goldie Hawn, Christopher Walken, Burt Reynolds, George C. Scott, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, to name just a few.

Services We Offer
The Beverly Hills Playhouse Acting School has for over thirty years offered ongoing intensive scene-study acting classes for both the professional actor and those who are looking to develop themselves into professional actors. The BHP is well known for Milton Katselas' unique approach, which addresses Acting, Attitude, and Administration. The BHP strives to train each actor in real-person-real-place, behavior-oriented, moment-to-moment acting work in the tradition of the great American actors. It is a training ground for serious artists who aspire to long-term careers. Rather than emphasizing any one technique or school of acting thought - such as Stanislavski, Meisner, Adler, Strasberg "sense memory," etc. - the BHP utilizes a down-to-earth approach developed over 40 years by renowned director and teacher Milton Katselas.
