The support of the entire Magnet community is what makes The Circuit possible, so please come out and support these new teams!

There will also be NO SHOWS on Sunday, May 26th. Please check with your teacher or the school director (email@example.com) if you have any questions.
Due to Hurricane Sandy, The Magnet Training Center will be CLOSED on Monday October 29th, 2012. All scheduled classes for Monday, October 29th are CANCELLED. There will also be no shows at the theater tonight. Please stay safe and obey storm warnings! We’ll see you after all this crazy Sandy business settles.
We are now accepting applications for The Circuit! How does The Circuit work? Glad you asked, every Friday night at 10pm, three Circuit teams perform the Harold at the Magnet Studio Theater. Teams exist for three months – enough time to perform a good amount of shows before the next round of Circuit teams replace the current ones. Circuit Teams are made up of Magnet Theater students who’ve completed up to Level 3, graduates of our Training program and veteran performers. We believe that in order to get better at improv, you need to do it.
The Deadline to apply is October 31st. Teams will be announced November 5th, 2012. The next round of Circuit shows will begin November 9th, 2012. Teams will alternate weeks through the end of January 2013. If you have any questions, please email Circuit@MagnetTheater.com.

The Magnet Training Center is a pretty special space. We moved in while it was still the home of Mike Nichols acting school, The New Actors Workshop, which he founded with Paul Sills (the son of Viola Spolin) and George Morrison.
And we got to spend about six months occupying the same space.
The improv roots run deep in these rooms. For over 20 years, New Actors taught acting, improvisation, voice and movement as an integrated system. Original games from Improvisation for the Theater were interwoven with acting systems developed by Stella Adler, Lee Strasberg, Sanford Meisner, and others. Nichols, Morrison and Sills saw improvisation as a necessary component in actor training and essential to the development of their craft. more
