Veteran actress Lois Smith, whose resume reads like an overview of the history of acting for the past six decades, first appeared on Broadway more than 60 years ago, has been nominated for two Tony Awards, won a National Society of Film Critics Award, Best Supporting Actress Award (opposite Jack Nicholson in Five Easy Pieces), and a Drama Desk Award.  Ms. Smith is a member of Steppenwolf Theater Company and has created a long list of credits in television, film and theatre.

Amanda Quaid has been working steadily for the past half-decade, most notably in the hit US premiere of Cock Off-Broadway, and on Broadway in Equus, as well as The Illusion with Lois Smith at Signature Theatre Company.

THE FREEMAN STUDIO (TFS) is dedicated to providing actors with a place to call home, where they can find connection and community, as well as vibrant, affordable, and useful classes led by the most inspiring teachers available. In addition to free events and workshops, the studio provides classes that allow actors to concentrate on process while developing methods for practical application and acceleration of their technique for the workplace. So often, for the trained actor, taking class is not about learning new concepts, but being reminded of them and learning how to use them more effectively. The studio allows an actor to do just that, in a nurturing environment and at a peer level respectful of their talents.
