AMCP was born out of a group of actors with a deep desire to hone and improve their craft, while successfully tackling two of the industry’s main obstacles: assuring one’s self prevalent as well as a rare affordability and accessibility of high caliber classes. AMCP is designed for the actor who thrives in an intense program along with practical commitment in order to successfully maintain their many auditions and the general devotion necessary to succeed.
Providing a series of classes ranging from Modern to Classical, as well as Contemporary Theatre and Musical Theatre; to Improvisation and Camera acting, we hope to bring the early career actor the opportunity to consistently focus on their journey and grow as an artist.
