  Acting for self-improvement and self- empowerment! Acting for Fun! Acting for all ages!

 Serving Montreal’s Acting community for 25 years, M.S.O.P.A offers serious training in a safe, fun, and challenging environment, developing a craft that allows you to be truthful, emotionally alive and that helps you find the courage to express your thoughts. In an industry where there are no guarantees, we educate our actors to be realistic and learn the business by providing casting and networking opportunities.

Foundation  I

Foundation is an introductory acting class where actors are introduced to basic techniques and skills.  Emphasis is placed on developing an initial set of tools, including improvisational skills, inner monologue, body and sensory awareness.  Students will work with short monologues which will encourage them to make choices, begin developing character, and to use their imaginations.  The focus of the Foundation course is to begin building a basic set of skills that will be further explored in advanced workshops.
