The Players Studio offers a diverse set of programming for actor’s of all ages and abilities that is designed to cultivate craft, broaden the mind, and grow artistic abilities. Our resident teaching artists within acting are classically trained and come with a wealth of knowledge and experience to help you reach your goals as a new or seasoned actor. New this season, we will be staging a 2023 Spring FRINGE Festival. Our Actor’s Lab classes from ages 5 to 99 will work throughout the year to devise original, classic, and contemporary material to perform in a festival setting in full production. Venue and date TBD.
All of our acting classes are titled “Actor’s Lab” as we believe teaching a wide variety of theatre arts skills leads to better performers and makers of their craft. Your first class is always free, so book a trial today.
