I wanted to create a place where actors not only could study acting but one where they could also gain invaluable, practical craft experience by actually doing it in performance. Since its inception, the studio has provided students with the finest professional actor training they need to develop themselves into first-rate craftsmen. The Studio has also provided them with a home-base wherein they may gain experience outside the classroom which complements their classroom training and helps them in the transition from the classroom into the acting industry.
