"This studio has really helped strengthen my tools and help me grow as an actor by adding new knowledge and tools. Here we really dig deep into doing the work, preparation, script breakdown and performance. I'm always challenged here which has been great for my continued development as an actor. A welcoming and non judgmental environment is another great thing about this studio. I've found my tribe and can't wait to continue to learn and grow with them."

~ Darius Devontaye Green, Actor

"I’ve been a student with The Company Acting Studio for nearly one year now. I am beyond grateful to have found this studio and Lisina Stoneburner. Her abundance of knowledge, insight, imagination, and ability to communicate with actors is of the highest quality. Here you will be challenged, inspired, and you will grow as an artist."

~ Vince Foster ~ Actor

What and how we teach

The Company Acting Studio teaches the Stanislavski Technique of Acting as taught by Stella Adler. This approach teaches acting as  a physical manifestation of a psychological truth and the belief that acting exists 99% through the use of your imagination.​

* We use scripts from plays, films and television.

* We use exercises in imagination, listening, reacting, living believably in the moment, character work and access of emotional truths.

* We teach scene study, audition, improv, character work, rehearsal process and performance for stage and screen.
