Stage Performance Acting Class
Teaching Artist: Grant McGowen

(Prerequisite: Must complete Meisner Foundation.) In this 8-week class, you will continue to learn the essentials of truthful acting and will work on challenging stage plays in collaboration with other actors and professional Directors. This class offers a showcase for Agents, Directors, and Casting Directors. McGowen combines techniques from some of the most important teachers in American theatre such as Sanford Meisner, Lee Strasberg, Utta Hagen, Stella Adler, Constantin Stanislavski, and his own acting teacher Larry Moss. He gives you a better understanding of how to break down a script, build a character from the ground up, and inspire audiences with riveting storytelling.

"Teaching Artist Grant McGowen, and the hardest working man in the theatre business, conducts courses into the finer points of acting, in this class he centers on the Meisner method... These actors are believable and do a good job of being vulnerable... For those of you that have a bucket list or are seeking a shift in careers, join in the fun and take a course from Pinch 'N' Ouch Theatre."
-The Backstage Beat

"Director Grant McGowen has gotten fine, sharp performances from all his actors, in every play. As an observer of the Atlanta theatre scene for quite awhile now, I must say that I'm excited by what Mr. McGowen and Pinch 'N' Ouch are offering to Atlanta. It appears that more and more of the city's finest actors want to work with him. Live theatre needs a sense of being on the edge, unafraid of new ideas, new plays, new actors. I think Mr. McGowen is the real deal, and I hope he sticks around."
-Atlanta InTown Paper

"McGowen's gutsy actors give naturalistic, powerhouse performances... that seems all too real... The name, "Pinch and Ouch, honors legendary acting coach Sanford Meisner, who taught that acting had to be absolute truth fully from the heart and soul... That, ultimately, could prove to be the strength of this theater group."
-East Atlanta Patch

"Edgy is the best word to describe Pinch N Ouch Theatre, a youthful group of dedicated actors shaking up the Atanta theatre scene since 2010. The unusual name is based on a quote from the legendary acting teacher Sanford Meisner, who guided students to act truthfully. Founded and led by Grant McGowen, this troop of youthful artists lives up to Meisners standards, earning them the title of "The Hippest Theatre Company in Atlanta."
