Welcome to the Studio.I wanted to create a place where actors not only could study acting but one where they could also gain invaluable, practical experience by actually doing it in performance. Since its first inception over 30 years ago, the Studio has provided students with the kind of professional actor training needed to develop themselves into first-rate craftsmen. The Studio has also provided them with a home-base wherein they can gain experience outside the classroom which complements their classroom training and helps them in the transition from the classroom into the acting industry.
The programs and classes are designed to train actors, directors and writers who seek professional careers in the fields of Film, Television and Theatre. Through Chelsea Rep LAB we provide a mechanism for our students to write, direct, audition and act in shows and productions. We have alumni who come back home to act with us, and alumni who blossom in the indsutry at large!
