“Prior to my experience at The Barrow Group, I spent years forcing tears, laughs, and understanding. After attending The Barrow Group, my experience changed drastically. I attribute my entire career to what I learned there, which is essentially: how to be more myself.”
–Lola Kirke, Mozart in the Jungle, 6-week program graduate
This 6-week intensive summer acting program taught by Seth Barrish and Lee Brock begins with script analysis and an introduction to Barrow Group tools found in An Actor’s Companion that encourage ease, spontaneity, and clarity.
The program progresses to classes in scene study, monologues, and on-camera acting technique, as well as specialty classes such as Voice for the Actor, Theatrical Clown, Stage Combat, and Improv. In the last week, students will participate in a workshop with a NYC Industry Professional (past professionals include casting director Marcia Debonis and manager Laurie Smith), in which students share their work and receive feedback.
The program culminates in a panel discussion with TBG alumni and industry professionals.
This program is an excellent, affordable way for those interested in pursuing a career in acting in New York City to be a part of a vibrant Off-Broadway theatre company and community.
