L.A.’s Top Meisner Training Program will be offering classes at The Two Roads Theatre in Studio City this summer.
Los Angeles, CA, May 14, 2021 – The Elizabeth Mestnik Acting Studio (EMAS) will be returning to in-person acting classes this summer with their 5-week Summer Meisner Technique Intensive.
In-Person Intensive will start July 7th, and be held Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at the Two Roads Theatre from 10am – 1pm.
Online Intensive will start June 14th, and will be held on zoom on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 4pm.
Elizabeth Mestnik explained, “We are so happy that the Covid-19 numbers have dropped low enough in LA that we are able to offer in person classes. We had incredible online programs this past year, and we will continue to offer those for people who aren’t able to join us in Los Angeles, but returning to in-person has our entire faculty excited to be able to do this work face to face. We are ready to prepare our actors for the full return of our film, television and theater industry”
Covid-19 protocols will be strictly enforced. Applicants for the in-person classes do have to show proof of vaccination to maintain the safest possible training environment. Class size has been reduced and classes have moved to The Two Road Theatre : 4348 Tujunga Blvd in Studio City to offer a larger training space to adhere to LA County protocols.
Founded in 2001 by Elizabeth Mestnik, EMAS is celebrating its 20th year as a boutique, training program for serious actors who want the rigors of a true 2-year Meisner Training program in a supportive yet challenging environment. Since its inception EMAS trained actors have worked in television, film and theatre and have found representation from some of Los Angeles’ top managers and agents. EMAS is also proud to be recommended by CBS and backstage as one of LA’s premier training programs.
As Alumni Charles Michael Davis said “My best was demanded every class. The program is challenging enough that it really prepared me for the demands of working on set. Set seems easy compared to what we did at EMAS!”
