" Highly recommended to anyone interested in The Meisner Technique...Interactive, supportive, fun - and I learnt a lot" Julie Ross

In this 1 day introduction course, participants will gain practical experience and insight into key aspects of Sanford Meisner’s Technique.


Acting Coach Peter Carroll trained in The Meisner Technique at The Acting Studio, New York City, with International specialist James Price.  


The Meisner Technique is a distinct approach towards personal preparation and performance creation. It’s about how we connect with fellow actors to create organic, believable and engaging choices. It's about using who you are and acknowledging that the voice has meaning.


Some understanding of the core principles of Stanislavski’s system or method may be useful but is not essential.


This course is suitable for both beginners as well as experienced actors and other creatives.

  • Introducing Repetition Exercises: purpose and understanding

  • Adding motivated ‘action’ through emotional struggle and response

  • Working with text: applying practical strategies to line learning and scene development

  • Application in Performance: being present in the moment and avoiding anticipation

"The Meisner workshops have been fantastic. Really pushed my technique further. Fun and very engaging...Would recommend to anyone who takes their acting seriously" RG

"...I loved it! I learnt so much...learnt to be 'present' and skills to learn lines. I feel so much more confident!" NA
