Kate Twa and John Cassini and the Railtown Actors Studio
The Vancouver Playhouse closed its doors for good this year, but as with every death, there comes new life.
Railtown Actors Studio is the brainchild of acclaimed acting instructor, director and writer Kate Twa and award-winning actor, instructor, writer John Cassini.
They say they are thrilled to announce the launch of a 3,500 square-foot facility, an initiative of the non-profit Railtown Theatre and Film Society, on July 13, 2012 in Gastown, one of Vancouver's most creative neighbourhoods.
“We aim to reach more actors with the highest-quality training and mentorship, while continuing to develop theatre and film productions," said Da Vinci’s Inquest star Cassini, a lifetime member of the respected Actors Studio (whose current Co-Presidents are Al Pacino, Ellen Burstyn and Harvey Keitel).
“This kind of environment is an exceptional opportunity both for new actors and seasoned veterans, to create a home base for their work and developing projects," continued Cassini.
