  • About
    The Actors Temple is the result of actors getting together and doing it for themselves. From humble beginnings in a front room and seven years of dedicated focus, we have now become a significant influence in the world of actor training. Our work is progressive. We do not cling to an idea of a technique, yet all is deeply rooted in the principles of acting taught by Sanford Meisner. We are all professional actors with desires to produce our work. We are actor trainers as well as independent artists. Our decisions as a group are based on what best serves the constant development and progression of our acting experience; which we continually go on to share with others through our training.

    2020, Meisner. On going.
    It was a great use of my time and funds. I have definitely grown as an actor during my time at the Temple. I feel that it picked up where my GSA course ended and took me deeper into being relaxed, authentic and fully present whilst performing.

    Yes, incredibly impressed. I have completed several acting courses in the last several months but this one was by far the best. I was the so taken with the technique and the manner in which is was taught that I have booked a place on the ten month "Core" training course which begins in October.

    2016, Meisner Technique
    The Meisner technique was a complete different approach from the techniques I've been trained on (Method). I found it challenging and exciting and the professors are professional yet friendly. I'll continue training with them over the year.

    The training I have had at the Actors Temple is like nothing I have had before and has transformed the way in which I prepare for a role. It has been the most amazing and challenging time in my life. My course instructor, Gary Condes, was totally committed every minute of every lesson to working with every student to help us expand and develop our instrument in a way i have never experienced before.

    2012, 16 week intensive Meisner Technique course
    The 16 week intensive Meisner Technique course at The Actors' Temple is a fully practical, hands on approach to acting teaching. It is also one of the only institutions in the country that teaches the Meisner Technique and I would say probably the best.

    2011, 16 week Meisner Intensive
    An amazing course with excellent tutors. The Meisner technique was my first introduction to acting - it's deep, challenging and wonderfully rewarding. The first thing I realized was how much I get in the way of myself so a lot of the work is about learning to get out of the way, learning to let go, learning to listen. It's fun but intense!

    2010, 2 yr. Acting
    The Meisner acting training at the Actor's Temple has been a great experience and has given me confidence in my own acting ability. It's main focus is to encourage us all to be authentic on stage and really engage fully with other actors which is not only better to watch but also much more fun than ever pretending to feel a certain way! It gave me a solid base and technique that I can rely on for any character and makes me really look forward to taking on a new part rather than worrying if I'll be any good! Also the Actor's Temple actively encourages people who have trained or are training there to come back to do scenes, monologues, improvisations or create our own work- its a community as much as a place to train. Its different- that's why I like it!

    2009, Meisner Training
    Excellent. As they will tell you, it isn't necessarily for everyone but it will provide you with a decent toolkit - or, even for more experienced actors, a different way of looking at things that will hopefully improve your craft. Impressive, knowledgeable and friendly tutors, great atmosphere. I recommend it, even if you're just brushing up on skills.

    The training I have completed at The Actors Temple, has been fundamental to my development as an actor. The work is challenging and fulfilling in ways I could never have imagined and my confidence and ability in myself as an actor has grown. I now have the tools to take to any job I go to and I have met other actors with whom I can share my experiences and work with.

    2007, Meisner 1 Year Intensive
    Training with The Actors Temple rejuvenated my belief in myself as an actor and opened up so many options in my acting. Their approach is simple yet demanding, and is truly and passionately motivated in creating individual artists; not your usual Drama School Line-Up of typecasts. I couldn't recommend it enough.
  • Vahid Jahangard

    Doing a course at The Actors Temple is best thing I have ever done. It helped in every aspect of my acting and performing. Since I finished my course at The Actors Temple every job I have done I have been praised by the directors . 2 weeks ago I performed in an open air venue to a crowed of people who made it clear when they did not like a performer. 5 minutes before going on I was prepared to run. Then I remembered what Tom at The Actors Temple told us. So I went on and after I finished I was asked to do another show in another venue the same night. Being able to do this I do really have The Actors Temple to thank for. So when people praise me for my natural ability on stage I say to myself thank you Actors Temple.
