As Washington's only accredited, professional actor training studio, our mission is to provide the best artistic and educational home for the next generation of performers and creators. And we LOVE it.

We LOVE providing an affordable education for people seeking a life and career in the performing arts.

We LOVE offering free audition, rehearsal, and production space to local artists, theaters, festivals, and production companies.

We LOVE supporting students and alumni in the creation of new work in the 48 Film Festival, Fringe, Page to Stage Festival, and beyond.

We LOVE offering free classes, workshops, and personalized career counseling to our alumni.

Your tax-deductible, charitable contribution will enable us to continue to provide all these services and more.

$25 - One of the 40 boxes of hand towels we go through in a year (set building can get messy!)
$50 - Printing the materials for one of Nan’s Business of Acting courses

$200 - Student participation in the 48 Hour Film Project
