Acting Programs – LA Campus

ACTING PROGRAMS

LOS ANGELES THEATRE & FILM PROGRAMS

The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute® seeks to carry out its mission by offering the world’s most comprehensive and authentic acting training in The Method™.

The Los Angeles Acting Programs at The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute were created by Lee Strasberg and are under the artistic supervision of his wife, Anna Strasberg, and his son, Creative Director David Lee Strasberg.

Lee Strasberg designed the classes to offer actors the opportunity to pursue their work systematically and to gain firsthand knowledge of his fundamental concepts. Here, through class work, seminars, exercises, scene work, demonstrations, commentary and discussions, both professional actors and non-professional actors are encouraged to develop their art and themselves.

Comprehensive training is necessary for actors to reach their maximum potential. The Institute offers carefully designed programs, which vary in level and scope, to empower our actors to face every challenge with courage and confidence.

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.
