CLASSES AT GAMM STUDIO

“Unlike most of your students, I’m not an actor and don’t want to be. But I’m a public speaker, podcaster, and television host. I’ve learned more from Gamm Theatre classes than any other workshops or oration courses that I’ve taken in the past. Most public speakers might not think to take an acting class, but they should! The Gamm made me better.”

- Jeff Belanger, public speaker and Emmy-nominated host of New England Legends on PBS

 

For the amateur actor, the working professional actor and everyone in between, Gamm Studio provides an enjoyable and unique learning experience in a comfortable and supportive environment. Gamm Studio does not offer a "method" of theater training, rather the emphasis is on the individual student. View our class policies and student discounts.
