CLASSES

Classes build a strong foundation in the Meisner and Michael Chekhov Techniques, and may include improvisation, cold reading, scene study, auditioning, on-camera, script analysis, and more. In addition, Chris will help students identify and free themselves from any physical and psychological acting blocks that may hold them back from realizing their full artistic potential.

As a working actress in LA, the feedback I always get is that I am natural, truthful and real. I attribute this to the years I studied with Chris; he has an intuitive approach to teaching that I have yet find anywhere else. His passion for acting combined with his care for his students, allows for a safe environment in which to explore the emotional vulnerability needed to succeed in show business.

PRIVATE COACHING

Chris Thatcher offers private coaching and on set coaching for adult actors. This is a valuable opportunity for actors preparing for an important audition, developing a character for a role in which they've already been cast, and/or on-set support during an actual shoot. However, private coaching is not available for general acting instruction, unless your presence in class would be a distraction to others.

For more information about private coaching and rates, please contact the Studio.
