The Two Year Meisner Training Program

At the Michael Warner Studio we offer rigorous Conservatory level training in the Meisner Technique at a fraction of the cost of other Meisner Training Institutions. In addition to the first-rate Acting Training our students also receive monthly Voice Workshops in the first year and Movement Styles in the second year included in the price of Tuition, as well as periodic Q&A’s with Industry Professionals.In the Second Semester of the first year our students get a chance to bring their class work to the Stage in the Studio’s Scene Nights. We believe that Stagecraft is essential in a young actor’s training and each student will have two opportunities to perform in front of an invited audience in the first year. In the second year our students continue to deepen their connection to the work while exploring Character. There will be three additional Scene Nights in the second year as well as workshops with leading Casting Directors in all mediums.

First Year-Section 1

Students focus on the fundamentals of The Meisner Technique-The Reality of Doing, Point of View and Personalization through Repetition, The Independent Activity, Scene Work, The Deepening of the Circumstance, and the introduction of Emotional Preparation.

First Year-Section 2

Students build on the foundation of the previous Section through Emotional Preparation, The Acting Relationship and The Domestic Exercise. Section 2 is bookended by a Scene Night. The first occurs after the Emotional Preparation component and the second ends the first year of training.

Second Year-Section 1

The Second Year of training focuses on continuing the work through the exploration of Character. Our students work on Opposing Points of View, Impediments, Nursery Rhymes and The Spoon River Anthology. The Section ends with a Scene Night.

Second Year-Section 2

The final section of training focuses on Scene Work with heightened language and style. Students will work on Shakespeare, Chekov, O’Neill and Ibsen. In addition, there will be monthly Workshops* with leading Casting Directors from Film, TV and Theater. There will be two Scene nights in the final section.

Acceptance in to the 2nd year is by invitation only.

Days and Times of 2nd year TBD.
