Next Meetup

Classes are open to new/old Actors and will do exercises, improv and scene work
First time attendees are FREE to audit the class. The classes will be led by Gary Swanson who is a working actor, not a teacher wishing to be one. He is the last of the actors who actually studied and knew Lee Strasberg, the “Father Of The Method”. Gary worked with the maestro for the last 7 years of his life, both in Lee’s private classes and as a Life Time Member of The Actors Studio. [masked]

What we're about

This Group is for the new actors or working professionals working toward a higher level of mastery and performance and rise as leaders in the profession.

New York and Montauk classes are open to former and new students as well as working professionals who need to "risk" new growth in scene work and the classic exercises created by The Moscow Art Theater later moved forward by Lee Strasberg and The Actors Studio. We create a safe environment in order to grow by "failing."

Also, Inquire about applications, auditions, and interviews held in New York City and Montauk. We are filling the remaining eight spaces for the ELEVENTH ANNIVERSARY of the 2017 Montauk Group Summer Program. The goal for each summer is to create a short film and showcase.
