Tour Information

Welcome to the NYC Actor's Orientation. This tour is for students who have taken the NYC Actor's Orientation Online Class. This tour is for actors, pursuing theater and musical theater who are new to New York City. The goal of the tour is to familiarize you with the studios that you will be going to regularly so that you don't need to be nervous about logistics when you are just beginning to go to auditions. There are also a few resources that I find invaluable on the tour.

I recommend that you go into the studios and check them out. You don't have to do the tour all at once. There are a number of studios that are close to each other so you can break it up into sections based on how much time you have available.
