For graduates of the ASA Apprentice course.

“The actor’s career develops in public, but his art develops in private.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Like an athlete, the actor's skill is contingent on the maintenance of her conditioning. For graduates of the ASA apprentice course, the Actors Studio was created to provide a place where young actors could work together to continue to develop their craft and to experiment with new forms in creative theatre work.


Each Saturday from 2-3.45pm, members explore and improve their craft in a safe, laboratory environment with colleagues with whom they share the same process of work.

Members work on duologues or monologues of their own choosing, or they can choose from a bank of scripts from ASA at right.


Lab sessions are intermixed with workshops lead by industry masters, such as casting directors, movement trainers and dialect coaches. The complete schedule is listed at the beginning of each new year.
