Meisner Technique Training Course

Stephanie Jones (Artistic Director Emeritus, The Essential Collective Theatre) returns to Toronto, Canada after teaching her first year program at the prestigious The Neighborhood Playhouse School of Theatre in Manhattan.   Having studied originally with renowned Canadian Meisner instructor, Jacqueline McClintock, Ms. Jones utilized the technique in her own work as an actor for two decades prior to her becoming the latest Meisner Instructor of the 1rst year full-time program.  Ms. Jones is the both the first female and the first Canadian to hold this position.

The Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre has been a major force in American theatre and theatre education since it’s founding in 1915, and the home of The Meisner Technique. Sanford Meinser developed and refined this a step-by-step procedure of self-investigation for the actor, to live truthfully under given imaginary circumstances.  This technique is now widely recognized as one of the foremost acting techniques taught today. There have been several versions of the technique in the modern-day classrooms, but Ms. Jones teaches according to The Playhouse guidelines, following the original intentions of Sanford Meisner.

Ms. Jones will offer a six-week course to 16 Toronto actors meeting bi-weekly and commencing Saturday June 6, 2015 at Fraser Studios.
