Welcome to Another Year at the Antaeus Academy,
The prestigious Antaeus Academy announces auditions for the fall sessions of Shakespeare Workout and Classical Styles. Become a part of a vibrant theater community as you tackle material that demands the utmost of your talent!
From A2 (Academy Company) member Chris Pine:
“What I enjoyed about the class was the feeling that good work was demanded of you. It always felt like a ‘no bullshit’ class. It wasn’t ‘Hollywood’: didn’t matter how you looked or how many credits you had. You were being taught great literature, it’s analysis and its performance from people whose credits would make you blush. And I loved that. There’s a tremendous respect for the actor as an important artist that’s taught in the academy and reflected in the community as a whole. I think that’s really it: the academy is a door into a wonderful community of actors who truly, wholeheartedly love what they do, and I am honored to be part of it.”
