WHO WE ARE

Wayne Watkins is a theatre producer, director, and acting coach. For over 20 years Wayne has coached privately for theatre, film, and television providing a safe haven for actors of all abilities to stretch and explore - from seasoned professionals to young artists just beginning their creative journey.
 

  • The philosophy of The Enclave is simple. Acting is a state of mind informed by imagination, intelligence, and experience. By creating an environment where those things are encouraged and nurtured, The Enclave will provide a community to help its artists and audiences flourish.

Wayne and his team created The Enclave as an alternative to the typical "acting company." So much of an actor's life, understandably, puts an emphasis on the business of acting. Often, however, this approach becomes somewhat distorted and the actor gets lost in the simple search for work. The Enclave believes the acting must come first.  Before you can become proficient at auditioning; before you can understand the nuance of cold reading; before you can be effective in front of the camera or command the stage - you must first be skilled in the craft of an actor and constantly work to hone those skills.

“Without wonder and insight, acting is just a business.

With it, it becomes creation.” 

Bette Davis
