NYC Masterclasses



OSC MASTERCLASSES are announced as they arise.  They are generally two-part classes consisting of a one-hour acting class with OSC director Ron Destro, followed by an hour Q&A with a world-acclaimed artist, such as our recent guests DAME DIANA RIGG, JEREMY IRONS, and GLENDA JACKSON.   They are held at various studios in Manhattan.

Past Masterclasses:

Class Disclaimer:  Because classes are held with working artists, there is sometimes the possibility of a schedule change or cancellation. In the unlikely event this should happen, participants will receive a full refund of the admission fee only, as we are not responsible for travel or other inconveniences.   Otherwise, fees are non-refundable.
