Professional 6 Week Summer Acting Program

“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


Our Professional 6-Week Summer Acting Program, taught by Seth Barrish and Lee Brock, begins with script analysis and an introduction to Barrow Group approach. The program progresses to classes in scene study, monologues, and on-camera acting technique, as Barrow Group acting tools are introduced. These tools, found in An Actor’s Companion by Seth Barrish, encourage spontaneity, clarity, and freedom in the actor’s work. Selected specialty classes such as voice for the actor, theatrical clown, improvisation, and Alexander Technique are included. The program culminates in an industry session with a NYC Industry Professional (agent and manager) and a panel discussion with TBG alumni and other 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.

 – script analysis
 – scene study
 – monologues
 – on-camera – scenes, monologues, audition technique
