Professional training for actors, directors, playwrights…

The Acting Studio - New York is an acting conservatory/studio of distinction located in the heart of the world-famous New York City theatre district. The studio director, James Price, friend and protégé to the legendary acting instructor Sanford Meisner and artistic director of Chelsea Repertory Company, has been training actors since 1983.

The programs and classes are designed to train actors, directors and writers who seek professional careers in the fields of Film, Television and Theatre.  With studio training offered in association with Chelsea Repertory Company, and extracurricular acting and directing opportunities available to  students and alumni through Chelsea Rep LAB, the success of many of its students has earned the studio recognition for developing award-winning talent.

The Acting Studio - New York ranks as one of the most-respected schools for acting classes in New York City.

 

Welcome… From the Director
James headshotmainwebsite
Welcome to the Studio.I wanted to create a place where actors not only could study acting but one where they could also gain invaluable, practical experience by actually doing it in performance. Since its first inception over 30 years ago, the Studio has provided students with the kind of professional actor training needed to develop themselves into first-rate craftsmen. The Studio has also provided them with a home-base wherein they can gain experience outside the classroom which complements their classroom training and helps them in the transition from the classroom into the acting industry.
