We offer an affordable alternative to MFA programs, without sacrificing quality. By providing a conservatory setting, our world-class faculty rigorously trains the actor to succeed in a highly competitive industry. We seek students who are diverse, generous, curious, collaborative, open-hearted, spirited, uncompromising, and real. The work we do at the Terry Knickerbocker Studio exemplifies impeccable integrity, joyous practice, bold choices, and a lively sense of play.
