Ilene Starger's Mission Statement

"I want actors to shine, and I'd like to help you fall in love with acting again.  I've witnessed so much during my thirty years of entertainment business and casting experience; I can give you insight, tools and, hopefully, renewed joy as you practice your craft.

My private workshops and classes combine practical acting and auditioning aspects with an exploration of material by superb writers, as well as dicussions of indelible film performances, past and present. I believe that knowledge and craft are inspiring, whether one is a beginner or further along in the process.  I am impassioned about actors and great material, and my workshops are kept small so that each actor receives and benefits from personalized, careful attention in a supportive, safe atmosphere." -Ilene Starger
