Jim Jarrett, the last teaching protégé of Sanford Meisner, will be presenting a three-hour workshop in which you will experience and understand the value of the Meisner Technique. Probe into why Sanford Meisner created the technique and how it has evolved. This will be a very interactive workshop.
When: 10 a.m. - 1 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 10
Where: The Meisner Technique Studio, The Presidio
39 Mesa Street, Studio A,
San Francisco, CA 94129
Entrance: If you're standing on Mesa Street, facing the building, you will see a staircase toward the middle of the building that leads downstairs into the basement. This is the entrance to the studio. Please click here for directions.
Parking: The Presidio charges a small fee for parking every day until 6 p.m. There is a parking "meter" located in the parking lot next to the building, where you can purchase a permit to display on your dashboard if you park in that lot or in the lot at the side (south end) of the building. This L-shaped lot is considered Zone 5. If you choose to park on Mesa Street in front of the building, this is considered Zone 6 and you will need to buy a parking permit at one of the "meters" located on the street. There are no meters on Mesa Street, so you would need to buy a permit at one of the meters on Funston Avenue (parallel to Mesa Street). Please do not park in the diagonal spaces directly in front of the building. Click here for a map and further details.
Class Size: 30 participants
