Where the Commitment to Excellence is Inspiring

Welcome to the GO Acting Studio. Over the years our classes have produced well-respected working actors including Jeff Kober, Armin Shimerman, Stephen Tobolowsky, and Cady Huffman. Actors need to study, of course, though the desired outcomes of that study are to work and be paid to work. Maria and Tom consult with qualified students about furthering their careers (getting an agent, getting a manager, getting a job, etc.) even as they pursue and perfect the craft of acting.

 
“She is enlightening
to my acting and writing.”Beth Henley, Pulitzer Playwright

We Foster the Emergence of New Talent

Classes are held on stage in The Victory Theatre Center, a creative hub for audiences and artists to engage through groundbreaking theatre, education, and social events. Its welcoming environment and intimate setting can’t help resulting in intoxicating work and conversation. The effort is to have small classes in which every member of the class works in every session. Many students also go on to be in productions at both The Big and
Little Victory Theatres, opportunities that showcase their work for the industry and public.

Prospective students must audit classes before signing up. Tom and Maria’s policy is that no should enter their classes without being familiar with their methods and aware of the rigorous demands which are made on all the students. There is no charge for auditing.
