The Acting Studio, Inc. is a private acting school/studio of distinction specializing in the Sanford Meisner Technique located in the heart of the theater district of New York City. The studio was created in 1983 by its director James Price and is now in its twenty-eighth year of operation. It offers acting programs and classes that are uniquely designed to suit the needs of the twenty-first century actor and director who seek careers in film, theatre and television.
The Acting Studio, Inc. is dedicated equally to the development of craft skills at the highest level through intensive short-term and long-term classes, and to the application of those skills in work presented in open-class forums, group projects and on productions presented for public performance produced in conjunction with Chelsea Repertory Company, its off-off Broadway company performing since 1984. The success of many of its alumni allows the studio to make claim to developing award-winning talent.
As a private acting studio, The Acting Studio, Inc. provides a breadth and depth of experience and exposure to professional theatre that many traditional acting schools, acting classes and academic programs simply can't match. Class size is limited, applicants are screened, and students must maintain a professional standard for advancement.
