Professional Training For Serious Actors And Hobbyists Of All Ages.

West Chester Studio for the Performing Arts is a community-wide acting and musical theater training program. Our teachers are experienced professional actors who provide a high-caliber performing arts education to students of all ages and abilities from Chester County, Delaware County, Wilmington and Philadelphia.

Students gain confidence and are encouraged to take risks in a fun, nurturing and safe environment. At the Studio self-discovery through the Meisner Technique is a critical component in the development of quality acting skills. As each student develops they begin to recognize the importance of his or her own voice.  With their new acting tools performers learn how to put their voice out into the world.

Our goal is to help propel the serious actor into the business while nurturing the novice. Our schedule of classes is designed with students academic studies in mind.

Private Coaching is available with Therese Walden Murphy on Mondays at the studio between 4:30-7:30.  Email or call to set up a time to work on your monologues, songs and auditions.
