About Studio


Founded in the fall of 2019, Studio began as an intimate Monday night scene study in West Hollywood lead by actor Megan Ketch and writer/director and casting director, Jeremy O’Keefe with ten actors tackling modern American plays.  Through the uncertain days of 2020, Megan took full leadership of Studio. She curated Monday night Zoom readings of plays and screenplays until early summer and eventually began teaching four week scene study class online until the summer of 2021.   

In late October 2020, thanks to an urgent desire to reconvene in person, Megan lead an Artist Retreats at the Parkfield Lodge on V6 Ranch in Parkfield, CA.  Covid tested and quarantined, twelve actors spent two days in scene study class in the 100 year old Parkfield Hall, on nature walks, around a fire pit, star-gazing and horseback riding. Seasonal retreats offer Studio actors a wholistic reset in a beautiful setting.    

Five years old, Studio is a referral-only community and has expanded exponentially with the committed investment, artistic appetite and satisfaction of its members.
