The Accelerated Meisner Program

The Accelerated Meisner Program is designed for actors who wish to deepen their craft in an immersive and comprehensive training experience. Spend 10 weeks, three days a week, breaking through your own barriers. Lead by Green Shirt Studio co-founders Andrew Gallant and Sommer Austin, you will systematically work through Sanford Meisner’s innovative series of exercises in order to:

  • hone your attention
  • unlock your imagination
  • find emotional freedom
  • reconnect to your instincts
  • get out of your head and into the moment
  • tap into your innate courage

In addition to the fundamental exercises, scene study and monologue work will give you the tools to approach scripts that is dynamic, human and true. The program culminates in a final scene showing showcasing your work for invited guests.
