Adult Acting Technique

Summer semester courses are online. When it is safe to return to in-person classes, we will do so. Our online classes are a great way for you to stay active, creative, and collaborative during this exceptional time. 

Seven Pillars Acting, taught exclusively at the Actor’s Studio of Orange County, is a professional technique for the modern actor. Beginning Acting for Adults is broken into two sections: LIVING TRUTHFULLY and THE REALITY OF DOING.

LIVING TRUTHFULLY focuses on the Pillars of Contact, Circumstance, Meaning and Emotional Life, also called Pillars 1-4, and THE REALITY OF DOING focuses in on Objective, Action and Physical Life, which are Pillars 5-7. Both sections make up two halves of one whole, equipping the actor with all the tools he needs to act. Actors often take both sets of Pillars at once, otherwise they can be taken in any order when beginning training.
