Congratulations to TSS Alum Julia Garner

TSS Alum Julia Garner with TSS Faculty Pam Scott

Julia Garner, TSS alum, has been getting incredible reviews for her work on Ozark.  We could not be happier for her success!  Julia came to T. Schreiber Studio as a teen seeking to overcome her shyness through acting instruction.  She took classes with Peter Miner and Pam Scott while she attended the Studio.  To this day, Julia still works with Pam both on and off the set of Ozark.

T. Schreiber Studio provides professional acting instruction for adults, teens, and youth. Your teen actor can take the next leap in their training with the Teen Acting Program, offered in connection with Denise Simon, Acting Coach.

Pam Scott offers both Beginning Technique Intensive, for actors looking to lay a solid foundation of technique, and an On-Going Acting Class for beginning and intermediate actors seeking to hone their craft though scene work.

Peter Miner instructs both the On-Camera Scene Study class, for actors with some film and television work under their belt, and the On-Camera Master Class, for actors looking to polish an advanced skill set.

Congratulations to TSS faculty Pam Scott!

Congratulations to TSS faculty member Pam Scott on the success of her show All The King’s Horses, which she both wrote and directed.  The production features TSS Alumni Erika Longo (Patty) and Gregg Prosser (Richie) as well as Kerry McGann.
