FREE Meisner Weekend Workshop

December 6th and 7th

When: December 6th and 7th 10AM - 1PM

Where: TBA (will be a convenient, central location such Gill or Sheil Park)

Sanford Meisner created an innovative, step-by-step series of improvisational exercises that work to train actors into being thoroughly responsive, emotionally alive, spontaneous and absolutely grounded in the reality of what is happening at any given moment with any given person. In this introductory session, we will guide you through the foundational exercises and help you get out of your head and into being truly present and responsive to the world around you and the people you share it with.

Enrollment Information

The workshop is free, but if you can spare it, we are asking for a donation to help cover the cost of renting the room. We must limit the workshop to 20 students, so please contact us ASAP to reserve your spot!

About Us

We are two highly trained theatre artists with extensive background in the Meisner approach. We have recently completed the first part of our certificate training in Meisner approach under the tutelage of Larry Silverberg (author of The Meisner Approach: An Actor's Workbook Volumes 1-4, Loving to Audition, and more), and we will finish the second half of the program next summer.

Here's what Larry says about us:

"Andrew and Sommer are gifted and sensitive theatre artists who have a very personal devotion to the Meisner Approach and to helping actors grow. They both have a sense of urgency about their mission, a mission to help fellow actors, that is wonderful to experience. I know, as a team, Andrew and Sommer are going to make a very big difference in the lives of the actors they work with and with their contribution, the Chicago theatre community will simply be a better place." --Larry Silverberg

I understand there are still a couple of spots left. If you're interested in or curious about Meisner's improvisational approach, you should definitely sign up! I just completed a Meisner class that Andrew and Sommer taught, and they're as enthusiastic and as knowledgeable as can be.

Check it out, yo!
