Acting Focus

The Acting Program at Maine Arts Academy offers four levels of acting instruction based on the Stanislavski Acting System.  Classes focus on classical and contemporary texts, voice and movement training.  Acting students broaden their theater perspective by taking classes in Directing, Playwriting, and Theater Leadership.  Acting Students are encouraged to audition for One Acts class where they can be cast in upcoming productions.
