I am honored by Jimmy Carville to be asked to run the Meisner Institute. In his 60 years of teaching, Sandy Meisner invited 20 of his students to learn how to teach his approach. I was fortunate to apprentice as a teacher under one of these 20 teachers. The Meisner Institute's goals are to provide each student with a solid foundation of acting skills, to train the next generation of Meisner teachers, and, as Meisner did for 60 years, to find the best way to teach each unique actor. - Scott Trost
