For advanced preparation as an actor, director, or playwright, there is still only one drama school in New York City that is officially sanctioned and supervised by the legendary Actors Studio.
The curriculum of this MFA Actors Studio Drama School - Acting, Directing, and Playwriting MFA program at Pace University is designed and supervised in cooperation with the leadership of the Actors Studio.
A three-year program with three track options, it provides common and specialized courses to meet the needs of actors, directors, and playwrights individually and in collaboration as a repertory group.
Uniquely modern in its approach, the School is an ideal conservatory for aspiring actors who want to be prepared to tackle a broad range of both character and leading roles, and for budding directors and playwrights looking to develop their expertise using the collaborative Actors Studio philosophy and tradition.
This program, moreover, offers workshops on auditioning, creating a strong resume, taking a great headshot, effective self-promotion, building industrial networks, and finding job opportunities.
