the montauk group 10th anniversary summer program 2016
There is an application process for the 10 available spaces for THE MONTAUK GROUP 10TH ANNIVERSARY SUMMER PROGRAM 2016 “FLAGSHIP PROGRAM” .
The mission and goal of the summer is to produce an Industrial Showcase for a team of trained actors.
Gary Swanson is a working actor, not a teacher wishing to be one. He is the last of the actors who actually studied and knew Lee Strasberg, the “Father Of The Method”. Gary worked with the maestro for the last 7 years of his life, both in Lee’s private classes and as a Life Time Member of The Actors Studio.
Strasberg infused his philosophy with the same standard of excellence that makes Gary a tour de force for the new actors or working professionals working toward a higher level of mastery and performance and rise as leaders in the profession.
Gary's students have been featured in:
New York City studio semi-private classes do not require an application for admittance. These classes are open to former students, new students, and working professionals who need a 'tune-up' on The Method. Studio classes include: Sensory & Scene Work, Cold Readings, Monologues, and Improvisations.
There is an application process for the 10 available spaces for the flagship program 2016. Each year, the flagship program culminates at the end of the summer with an Industry Showcase.
Writers, Casting Agents, Directors, Producers, and Professional Artists will be invited to these exclusive events. One will be held in Montauk and the other in NYC.
