Where the process is integrated to you

Total Theatre Lab is a place where actors who take acting seriously can open themselves to the art and craft of acting. They are able to pursue the process of learning with determination and consistency within a flexible schedule that allows for survival jobs. Students are encouraged to compete only with themselves and follow their intuitive impulses while learning solid techniques. Actors receive support so they can search out their demons and confront them in a healthy environment. This approach forms a basis from which they can discover all their characters within themselves and fosters the mature flowering of their talent in performance.

Total Theatre Lab provides an integrated Acting Process, utilizing four major techniques: Method, Meisner, Stella Adler, and the Voice/Body work of Jerzy Grotowski & Kristin Linklater. This comprehensive approach enables a professional level of performance, both grounded and truthful, when acting in public readings, plays, film work, and original material.
