Training & nurturing outstanding artists over 35 years #AtlanticActorsWork

At Atlantic, our aim is singular—to empower simple and honest storytelling that fosters greater understanding of our shared world. We are a family of artists dedicated to exploring essential truths onstage, be it a show at Atlantic Theater Company or a class at Atlantic Acting School. As a producer, presenter, and educator of theater, we are driven by the belief that theater can challenge and transform our ways of thinking and urge us to reflect on our role in society. From our Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning productions to our community-based education programs, we are committed to uncovering and celebrating the stories of our varied human existence.


At Atlantic Acting School, we equip our students with the physical, emotional, and analytical tools of acting to discover their truths, and prepare them for success beyond our doors. From our Full-Time and Evening conservatories to our newly announced Global Virtual Conservatory, and our Spring and Summer Intensives, our immersive, learn-by-doing approach is central to an Atlantic Acting education. We have trained and mentored outstanding artists for more than 30 years. No matter their age or background, our students learn to break through their creative comfort zones in service to bringing essential human stories to life.

Founded as an ensemble of impassioned students in 1985, Atlantic has grown into a

powerhouse Acting School and a Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning
Off-Broadway Theater Company.

Ours is the only conservatory program in the world that offers in-depth training in Practical Aesthetics, the Atlantic Technique – outlined in A Practical Handbook for the Actor.
