Want to see your Young Actor in the Spotlight? All Young Actors get the star treatment at The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute®.

“Every teacher I have had has greatly inspired me to want to learn and to be better.”

-Rafi Reiss, Young Actors at Strasberg alumnus

WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO BECOME AN ACTOR?
I first auditioned for a school musical just hoping for experience, but I got a great role and loved it. I learned and grew so much through it. From then on acting is all I wanted to do. I want to become an actor because everyone I’ve met through acting has been incredible and turned into my role models.

WHO’S YOUR INSPIRATION?
My inspirations are people I’ve met while doing theater. Also, every teacher I have had has greatly inspired me to want to learn and to be better.

WHATS AN INTERESTING FACT OR QUALITY ABOUT YOURSELF
I used to play soccer all the time, but I got injured, so I switched to music and eventually theatre

COVID-19

Dear Students and Prospective Students,

As news of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to develop, we wanted to take time to reassure our community that The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute is monitoring circumstances on a regular basis. We are committed to the well-being and education of our students, faculty and staff. Following in step as other universities and schools, we have transitioned to holding classes remotely in ways that are meaningful.

The Spring 2020 term will begin on April 20th.

These are unique times worthy of serious thought and implementing measures of caution. We trust that our Community will, as always, join together, to find new ways to collaborate, innovate, and continue doing the work we care so deeply about.

Please be sure to follow us on social media for events and updates during this time where we're all Safer at Home.
