Welcome to The Actors Arena website.

We just finished another exciting session of classes on December 9th and it was wonderful!  Check out our YouTube Channel to see some of the scenes and monologues that our students delivered this time around!  We loved their work!  It’s fantastic to see what their growth has been like!

Our next session returns in January while our staff enjoys the holidays with their family and loved ones.  We’d love for you to join us too.  Click on “Classes” to check out what The Actors Arena can bring to you.  We remain one of the favorite schools in the Austin, TX area and of course we have the deliciousness of Terry Kiser to bring lots of fun to it all as well as our wonderful student body!

This next session will be delving into the acting style of the incredible Marlon Brando with an education screening and examination of the film “Listen To Me Marlon”, the fascinating documentary about this incredible actor and his life, his viewpoint of acting, and much more.


We are having a BLAST!   Come join us and learn how NOT to act and find a whole new family in the process!

    Kenny: Hope you get this! I tried to contact Terry, but realize that he is very busy. No need for him to get back to me. But: I would like to know more about you and your theater and what Terry’s connection is to it? I have close friends in Dallas and visit Texas on my way to Santa Fe and California.
    Do you look for financial support , or is your theater self sufficient? I would love to know whether you are a theater or school…or both?
    Terry will always be special to me. But it was many years ago since we were in touch. Please let me know more about your theater and I will hit the web site myself to get some info. You can tweet me as well!!
    Best Always

    Good news for Terry Kiser fans starting December 22 Retro TV will be airing The Doctors in Primetime at 9PM from the beginning of their run in the December 4 1967 episode (the Rice Bellini FIGHT) The 12 Noon episodes will continue on (May 1968 as of now).
    One question for Terry IMDB has him on from 1967-69 Does our Little Boy Doctor come back after he left in early 1968 or is IMDB. The fans on the soap boards hope he did come back, we miss John Rice

      Johnny Dynamo is going to be up soon – we are all very excited! I’ve been lucky enough to see small snippets and it’s good good stuff. I’m extremely thrilled about “The Body Sculptor”; not only is the story exciting but it’s a great departure for Terry and yet another challenge for him. There’s a nice “stir” in the air for everyone about it. Stay tuned!

      Hi Bryan-
      Sorry for the long delay in getting to you on this – Terry is currently out on the set filming a feature and we’re getting the school ready for the next session. I’ll forward your question on to him, but am not sure when he’ll get a chance to get back to you. I’ll be sure to get back to you as soon as he gets a chance! Thanks – Kenny

      We’ll have Terry’s appearances, if any, listed on the site when they’re added. Currently he is booked up filming several projects. Best bets are going to be at Comic Con appearances.
