Adult Acting and Improvisation is designed to help adults step into the world of acting either professionally or as a part time hobby.  You will be working with Professional Actor and Studio Owner, Therese Walden-Murphy, who will choose material especially selected for you and will challenge you to become your best.

The Adult Acting class is run similarly to professional classes in NYC and LA,  jam-packed with fun and substantial learning.  We will begin each class with 30 minutes of Improvisation taught by Lauren Henry (you know her from Better Than Bacon) as a springboard for trusting instincts.  While the primary technique taught in this class is Meisner Technique, other influences include: Stella Adler, Viola Spolin, Terry Schreiber, The Barrow Group, and Stanislavski.
