Acting from Southern Methodist University seeks to prepare serious, dedicated artists for a life in the profession. 


Acting from Southern Methodist University curriculum combines broad-based and inclusive actor training with rehearsal and performance of classical, contemporary, ensemble-based and self-created works. Our unique relationship with the award-winning Dallas Theater Center provides students with the ability to collaborate with artists of national and international stature. 

Students at Acting from Southern Methodist University will:

  • identify and redirect habitual behaviors, release imagination and structure a foundational technique that allows actors to bring their full selves to the work. 
  • expand their technical and imaginative abilities though extended voice and dialect work, commedia and character mask, and European clown.  In addition to regular casting, graduate students create two self-directed pieces – one solo and one ensemble-based.
