The Meisner Technique – A Free introductory workshop

We’ve got a special event coming up and we want you to be part of it. Please join us on Saturday August 27th from 10am – 4pm for an on-your feet workshop with L.A.’s top Meisner Technique Instructor, Elizabeth Mestnik. Many actors hear about how effective and popular this technique is, especially for film and television, but many aren’t sure why or if it is the technique for them.  Elizabeth will give 20 lucky actors the opportunity to learn about the Meisner Technique through a combination of discussions and exercises.
