The Peter Wise Actors Studio (PWAS) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded to fulfill a need for emerging performing artists to develop their gifts. It is our belief that every artist deserves a supportive platform to learn and grow, regardless of their socioeconomic status. Our vision is to provide a nurturing training ground for emerging talent within the entertainment industry, focusing on the underprivileged and marginalized communities. .
2. Theater Arts Program - This program will focus on acting, dance, voice and production. This program will allow actors to audition for roles in productions that PWAS will have throughout the year. These productions will not only help fellow actors to experience the component of theater and production, but also allow them to showcase their acting and performing abilities to an audience. Furthermore, these productions will serve as a fund raiser in which tickets will be sold to generate funds for the organization.
The training at our acting studio will include: on camera work, audition technique, improv, scene study, character development and dialect coaching. We take pride in our actors perfecting both the Meisner technique and method acting. There are three different types of programs.
1. Acting Classes - Individuals interested in the field of acting will learn the craft and sharpen their skills.
3. Youth Program - This program will partner with schools within the LAUSD School District to bring performing arts to the schools. Most inner-city students do not have the resources to experience the performing arts. Partnering with these schools who service under privileged youth will expose them to theater arts. Research has shown this to be an invaluable tool to help at risk youth channel their experiences in a more positive, creative and productive manner. This program will expose the youth to acting, dance, production (stagecraft, editing, filming, etc.).
