“The actor has to develop his body. The actor has to work on his voice. But the most important thing the actor has to work on is his mind.”
~Stella Adler

The Stella Adler Academy of Acting and Theatre is proud to begin offering its world-renown actors’ training program to youth, ages 8 through 17.

Some of the world’s greatest stage and screen talents have been trained in the Adler Technique since its inception in 1949, including Marlon Brando, Robert DeNiro, Salma Hayek, Benicio Del Toro, Holland Taylor, Gary Ross, Eric Stoltz, Mark Ruffalo and more.

The Adler’s youth program will focus on the same imagination-based training that has proven successful for adult actors for more than 60 years. Youth will participate in classes and gain experience through actual productions.

“The Adler’s acting program is ideal for young artists because of its strong focus on actors’ use of imagination,” said Rodgers. “Young people usually have access to creative thinking in ways that many adults must re-learn when they begin an acting program. We are thrilled to enable young artists to strengthen this ability and maintain it as they grow into adult performers.”

The Adler’s youth program will be taught by professionals with extensive experience working with young performing artists. Some teachers include Rick Peters.

The Stella Adler Academy of Acting is an internationally known acting school located in the heart of Hollywood. It offers extensive training for the serious actor in theatre, film, and television. The technique grew out of Stella Adler’s work with Stanislavski, the father of modern acting, and it has been studied by many of the world’s most notable actors, directors, and writers.
