Sanford Meisner

Who are the Actors Door Studio

The Actors Door Studio is a London acting studio with a defined approach to acting tutelage based on the teachings of Sanford Meisner. We have been helping new and experienced actors to develop their skills and techniques since first opening in 2015.

The techniques taught by the great master serve as the foundation of our courses which has allowed us to become one of the best alternative drama schools in London specialising in the Meisner Technique.

In addition to Meisner Technique courses, the Actors Door Studio offers classes in Voice, Movement and Screen Acting to complement the actor’s training.

We are dedicated to providing excellence in actor training for performers who wish to pursue a professional acting career. The studio provides both short and part-time courses, drop in classes, screen acting, actor development classes, scene study and audition workshops.

What makes the Actors Door Studio different? 

The studio’s founder, Fay Beck, has further refined the Meisner Technique to create a more focused, functional and integrated method of actor training. Beck has formulated a unique approach that enables actors to deliver genuine, powerful and memorable characters on screen and stage. This method has been informed by her in-depth studies of performance and a background in psychology, philosophy and storytelling.

A Tailored Approach to Training Actors

We do not believe that one size fits all. What sets us apart from other acting schools is our tailored approach to training actors. In practice this means teaching our method in small groups while providing bespoke training based on the individual abilities of the actor.

All of our instructors are trained to identify the strengths and weaknesses of each student which allows them to develop a detailed plan of action. This plan is continually updated to help the individual reach their goals.

Our aim is to create tomorrow’s powerful character actors using the tools we have developed through years of experience. If you are seeking an alternative to standard drama schools, the Actors Door Studio is exactly what you are looking for. We recognise hard work and commitment and provide you with all the training you need to become the character actor you’ve always wanted to become.
