Community Collaborations

Collaborations with community organizations allow the studio to bring vital, life-affirming experiences to severely under served populations. These programs focus on providing students with an opportunity to learn and practice the techniques developed by Stella Adler, while discovering their voice in the world through play-writing and performance projects. Led by professional teachers and a team of Adler Ambassadors (volunteer alumni and full-time conservatory students) an ensemble is formed as all artists work together to create new, original work. The material is performed at each off-site facility as well as at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting. Partners have included alternative classrooms, recovery programs and correctional facilities.
