Spring Is Here!!! (Except for those occasional 30 degree nights!!!)

Spring is here (except for those occasional 30 degree nights)! 

Spring is here and so is William Esper’s new book, “An Actor’s Guide to Creating a Character” with introduction by Patricia Heaton (Home Improvement.) 

The William Esper Studio located at 208 W. 37th Street in Manhattan has been named one of the top 25 acting schools in the world.  Before opening his school, he was Sanford Meisner’s protégé and the heir apparent of The Neighborhood Playhouse’ Acting Program.

What does all this mean to the Hudson Valley?

It means that the Hudson Valley has local access to this world-renowned method of acting right here in our own back yard!

At the “Acting Anyone Academy” in Goshen, New York, Master Actor David Patrick Wilson studied hundreds of hours with BOTH Sanford Meisner and William Esper. 

New classes are forming at the Acting Anyone Academy in the authentic “Meisner Method”.  If you are interested in a professional career in acting or if your children show an exceptional natural talent, don’t miss out on your opportunity to study with a “Master” of this technique who has proven its value in the marketplace.

David’s career includes “The 7Ups”, “Grey Lady Down”, “Eddie and the Cruisers”, “Magnum PI” , “Dallas the Early Years”, a TV series with Ed Asner entitled “The Bronx Zoo”, “Coins in the Fountain” with Lonnie Anderson, “Unspeakable Acts” and “Collar” with Tom Sizemore, Rebecca DeMornay and Richard Roundtree to name just a few.  You can find out more at his IMDB site:

In addition to being blessed with great acting teachers, David was likewise graced to study voice with one of the legends of voice training, Seth Riggs. His “Speech Level Singing”, technique has proven to be the healthiest way to work as a singer.  Seth trained Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Mariah Carey, Michael Bolton, Julio Iglesias, Toni Braxton, Bernadette Peters and all of the American Idol Singers (i.e. Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Ruben Stoddard, etc.).  David works with his voice clients privately at the offices of Willy-Gilly Productions, 222 Greenwich Avenue, Goshen, NY   10924.

Level 1 Adult Classes, Level 1 Youth Classes (8-11 years old), Level 1 Young Adult Classes (12-17 years old) as well as Production Classes will be starting soon in the fellowship hall at St. James Episcopal Church, 1 St. James Place, Goshen, NY.

Some private spots are available for “Speech Level Singing”.

If you have ever had any thought about seriously pursuing developing you gifts, here is a rare opportunity to take full advantage of everything that “Acting Anyone Academy” has to offer.

Don’t miss out.  Call to reserve your place.  (845) 294-7500.
