Milne Studio, formerly the San Antonio Film Academy, is pleased to announce its union with The Historic Josephine Theater. Opened in 1947, the Josephine was once one of San Antonio's premiere movie theatres. Today, it is well-known as one of the cities’ top musical theatre venues and for its ongoing eclectic mix of film and stage productions. Visit http://milnestudio.com
“Our goal is that the connection with Milne Studio will broaden the Josephine’s reach, bring new patrons, and gather artists of all kinds together while ultimately strengthening San Antonio’s arts community.” said Tommy Miller, the Josephine’s Executive Director. Visit http://josephinetheatre.org/
Milne Studio has access to the Josephine’s 375 seat stage-movie theatre, lounge and two upstairs studios, ‘The Projection Room’ and ‘The Loft’ which will house classes, film screenings, stage productions and other events.
The Studio’s Fall through Spring curriculum is designed to serve actors, filmmakers, artists, musicians, and business professionals of all kinds. The extensive array of classes is empowered by Milne’s technique, Perge. Derived from 22 years of acting experience and 14 years as an acting coach, this method is Milne Studio’s foundation of creative learning, expression and growth.
“I’m thrilled to be working with prominent San Antonio filmmakers Taylor James Johnson and Dylan Cody Altman of Taylor Trash Productions in our newly evolved film program, ‘Making Filmmakers’. Our purpose is to help nourish the San Antonio film community.” Milne said.
The work of the Fall through Spring curriculum will culminate in the Milne Studio Showcases, scheduled February 8th and May 3rd.
Milne continued, “Ten years ago, I walked onto a Texan stage for the first time playing Santa Anna in Gone To Texas. It was an exhilarating life moment. Being welcomed back to the Josephine with open arms is like going home. I’m excited about what we have to offer San Antonio.”
Milne Studio is a higher-level learning institution on a mission to inspire creativity and enrich the lives of actors, filmmakers, and others artists. We guide our students toward a passion for excellence, while equipping them for professional success.
The Josephine Theatre is a non-profit community theatre, committed to enhancing San Antonio's cultural horizons by creating opportunities for individuals to enjoy and grow in the excitement of live theatre as patrons, performers, and students.
