Interviews and auditions are required at this venerable studio, which was opened in 1969 by Terry Schreiber and counts movie stars Edward Norton and Peter Sarsgaard among its conservatory graduates. Newbies can choose from three beginner classes: Meisner Technique for Beginning Actors ($695 for 12 sessions), On-Camera I ($425 for six sessions) and The Saturday Program ($260 per month) which starts with basic technique and moves on to scene study. The studio also mounts full-fledged productions, too, in case you want to see its students and alumni in action.

Before entering the one year conservatory at TSS, I didn’t quite know what I was doing. I was very new to acting at the time and was relying on my instincts and raw talent- which is unsustainable for a career. I literally read every acting book by every teacher and was very eager to learn the “craft” of acting. The greatest thing about TSS’s program is that there isn't just one technique or method taught for approaching a scene. TSS gives you all the tools (Adler, Meisner, Hagen, Sensory, etc) and encourages you to use what works for the individual actor while still allowing you to nurture your own unique instincts for a scene in a very safe, artist first environment. The teachers care about the work but they also care about the human and are always fighting for every actor to have a break through or discovery that will live with you long after the training is complete.
I have been taking courses at T. Schreiber Studio for nearly 3 years and just cannot say enough about the quality of the education I receive here. The instructors are phenomenal, the many courses offered are diverse and comprehensive, and the Studio itself is a welcoming, inclusive community of actors at all levels. I would highly recommend this school to any New York actor - whether you're new to the business or a seasoned working pro, T. Schreiber Studio and its outstanding teachers will help you get to the next level...and beyond.
I found Terry after stepping out of the business for a chunk of time to be the 'hub' at home. Now an empty nester, I went to T Schreiber get the muscle going again. Terry is an institution, and his teaching staff is superb. No mind games going on, just pure acting craft and the love of it! I am ever grateful that he and his staff have held onto their consummate vision after all these years and have somehow kept those doors open for the rest of us. Thank you to Terry and the whole gang!!!!!
