what is actor's bridge ensemble?

If Actors Bridge were a boxer, we'd be Jake LaMotta.

A singer? Johnny Cash. A drink? Straight tequila. Coffee? Triple espresso.

Actors Bridge is theatre with guts.

Since 1995, Actors Bridge has produced more than 70 plays including 50 Nashville premieres and 13 world premieres of new theatrical works. We have trained over 3,500 actors in the Meisner Technique. Our students have appeared on Broadway, Off-Broadway, in television and film, as well as on every stage in Nashville.

As an actor training program and professional non-profit theatre company, we are committed to telling the stories that impact our community by creating provocative and socially relevant theater. We are committed to new work, emotionally authentic acting, and taking brave creative risks.

Actors Bridge is the home of Act Like a GRRRL and the Sideshow Fringe Festival. We are the professional theater in residence at Belmont University

Our studio is located at the LeQuire Gallery building at 4304-F Charlotte Avenue.
