Backstage: “1 Year at T.Schreiber Will Change Your Life – and Career

“The One Year Conservatory has changed my life professionally and personally,” said one former program participant. “After studying at previous acting programs in the city I know and feel that there is no program quite like it. I have never worked with such incredibly passionate, challenging and encouraging teachers in a supportive and safe environment. The changes and progress that have happened collectively and individually since beginning the program are just extraordinary.”

The comprehensive curriculum consists of two 12-week semesters and a six-week performance series designed to introduce students to industry pros. A first semester covering fundamentals—imagination in acting, voice and speech, and body dynamics—is followed by an expansion of those fundamentals, including Shakespeare, on-camera work, workshops geared toward auditioning and the biz, and script analysis with acting teacher Terry Schreiber himself.

The early decision deadline is March 31, so start prepping two contrasting monologues for your in-person audition. For a full list of application requirements and other information, visit
