In this one-day introduction course, participants will gain practical experience and insight into key aspects of Sanford Meisner’s Technique. Acting Coach Peter Carroll, founder of Thinking Actors, trained in The Meisner Technique at The Acting Studio, New York City, with International specialist James Price.  

The Meisner Technique is a distinct approach towards personal preparation and performance creation. It’s about how we connect with fellow actors to create organic, believable and engaging choices. It’s about using who you are and acknowledging that the voice has meaning.

This course is suitable for both beginners as well as experienced actors and other creatives.


  • Introducing Repetition Exercises: purpose and understanding
  • Adding motivated ‘action’ through emotional struggle and response
  • Working with text: applying practical strategies to line learning and scene development
  • Application in Performance: being present in the moment and avoiding anticipation
