1 Year Professional Acting Program


The One Year Professional Acting Training Program is designed for the professional, working actor. This intense, narrow scope of training program, is designed to build on the actor’s existing set of skills and take training to the next level. Students will work with The Barrow Group’s simple, effective tools, as compiled in Seth Barrish’s book “An Actor’s Companion”, which help an actor to find more ease, spontaneity, and clarity. The program culminates in a showcase directed by Seth Barrish and Lee Brock in our Studio Theatre.  If you have any questions, please email school@barrowgroup.org.
