About

The Acting program from University of Washington has been a highly regarded three-year conservatory training program for more than forty years. The program leads to a Master of Fine Arts in acting. 

Overview

Key facts

We are devoted to preparing carefully-selected actors for the professional world of theatre, film, television, and new media. Our training is based on the time-honored traditions and practices of Stanislavski combined with extensive physical training that includes Suzuki Method, Viewpoints, Alexander Technique, and stage combat.

The primary focus of the Acting program from University of Washington is to provide our actors with the tools and sensibilities to become outstanding theatre actors who are comfortable and effective in all media. The faculty is made up of successful theatre professionals who are inspired to teach.  

Importantly, the PATP also strives to inspire life-long exploration and inquiry into the creative spirit that informs the actor’s work. We recognize the importance of ensemble work and the necessity of entrepreneurial skills in developing a versatile, evolved actor.

Program of Study

The training day is from 9 AM to 5 PM, followed by evening and weekend rehearsals and performances. Our program is structured to immerse students in the traditional vocabulary and practices set down by Konstantin Stanislavski and informed by the individual professional experiences of the faculty. The program is also designed to increase the actors’ expressiveness through “instrument classes” in voice, speech, dialects, and extensive physical training. Over the three years of study, our students are exposed to cutting edge material as well as work in the established canon of western dramatic literature. They also practice devising original performances. 

Programme Structure

Course Overview:

  • During their course of study, each student appears in at least seven productions, two self-written solo shows, and extensive scene and technique classes. 
  • Recognizing the opportunities beyond theatre, we also provide our students with screen-acting opportunities and audition coaching for film, TV, commercials, and new media. We provide the means, equipment, and expertise to make professional quality videos to showcase our students’ talents. 
  • During the third year, classes and projects focusing on career and business become part of the curriculum.
