A Closer Look At Our Weekly Schedule.

Let’s take a closer look at what arrives throughout your week. You won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every new edition of the newsletter goes directly to your inbox.

Acting Training For All.

MONDAYS - THE ELYSIUM AESTHETIC. An in-depth, weekly, step-by-step approach for every tool, every muscle, every everything an actor needs to soar, no matter what the world asks of you. New chapters released Mondays over 2023. (here’s a sample)

TUESDAYS - AARON’S NOTES. A raw, handwritten breakdown of each week’s audio chapter, a new addition to our Glossary Gigantum, and a chance to turn a silly class moment … into legend. (here’s a sample)

WEDNESDAYS - PERSONAL CRAFTING WORK. Resources, recommendations, video troubleshooting tips, and personal exercises that grow the muscles, perspectives and practices focused on in each week’s class. (here’s a sample)

THURSDAYS - MOMENTS OF MAGIC. Each week, DJ EA (that’s me!) reveals new selections to our Instrument Practice Playlists, a personal knickknack from our weekly class, and a magical moment that shaped my artistic life. (here’s a sample)

A Raw, Creative Spirit.

FRIDAYS - CABARET ELYSIUM. ​A cabaret delivered right to your inbox. We welcome the weekend with inspiration, celebration and performative passion.(here’s a sample)

SATURDAYS - REHEARSAL PLAYGROUND. We rehearse and play in two unique ways: weekly character challenges + monthly mainstage rehearsal projects. They’re designed for solo exploration, archived on Substack, organized and easy to revisit anytime. Jump in one week, recharge the next. An open playground ready when you are. (here’s a sample)

SUNDAYS - SHAKESPEARE BRUNCH. A celebration of food, poetry, song, and a fresh cup a joe. (here’s a sample)
