"The future is called 'perhaps,' which is the only possible thing to call the future. And the important thing is not to allow that to scare you." - Tennessee Williams

If you remember what it was like to be a child, then you can be an actor. We were all born with unlimited creativity, sense of play and free access to the core emotions. In our journey to adulthood, many of us are conditioned out of the very things that make us vital.

Our Acting Techniques & Approach

The Acting From the Core technique offers reliable and accessible methods that the actor can use to tap into their intrinsic power. Solidly based in the Stanislavski system and the philosophy of actor as instrument, the technique enables the actor to create compelling, effective performances that will get you noticed and booking those coveted acting jobs.

With an emphasis on script analysis, audition technique and acting for film, the Acting From the Core approach will give you a solid foundation in the audition room. In addition, our proven methods of releasing the actor's inner life will give your work the richness and edge you need for both the Auckland and international markets.

Kacie Stetson Studio also supports the beginning and intermediate actor in the business of acting, guiding the student through the marketing process from headshots and CV, to booking the right agent and auditioning, all the way into creating self-generated projects to get your brand out there and noticed.

Kacie is committed to having every student work in every class. She also expects her students to rehearse with their scene partners outside of class.

"It's okay to be scared. That's human. What's not okay is to defer your dreams because of it." - Kacie Stetson
