Three years ago, I enrolled full-time as an international student and learned the major acting techniques (Meisner, Strasberg, and a little of Stella Adler), as well as their signature Character Preference technique. Having these tools under my belt has given me a definite advantage in creating characters, being in the moment, reading between the lines, creating strong, specific, memorable choices, being able to improvise a scene, and most importantly, how to be real. It was challenging taking the full gamut of courses, but artistically, I feel like I've unlocked many doors for myself.

Each teacher has an impressive acting background. This isn't some scam-you-for-your-money, generic acting school. It's a highly specialized training ground for the serious, dedicated actor. I've also studied under top-notch guest directors and casting directors. The secrets they've shared are practical and applicable, giving me that extra edge in the field. It's a guilty pleasure having such insider information about the craft :)

The Promenade Playhouse staff treats me like family. I can only speak good things about them. Even after I graduate this December and embark on my optional practical training, I'm still going to take a class or two just to keep up my chops. The line-up changes every quarter, so please be sure to check out what they're offering on their website. And break a leg!

Take the on-camera classes and you WILL inprove your auditioning skills! Many of us have learned to "act" which will help you when you get the job. Unfortunately, we are rarely taught how to GET the job. They have beginning and advance classes for Commercial and Film/TV. The school also has an excellent reputation for Meisner training and they are pioneers of what they call Character Preference which I recommend that you attend a sample class to experience.
