One of the great things about having a theatre company right here in Keene is the extra opportunities it affords for those who live in the area. We are not just an acting company; we are a community of people who love theatre and who also have many areas of expertise we would love to share.

"I've worked with Kim as her acting student and as an actor in her theatrical productions, and all of those experiences have enriched my life. I developed a confidence to present to large groups, they fed me creatively in many ways, they were fun, challenging and I was able to explore aspects of myself that I didn't even know were there! I highly recommend her classes for anyone from any walk of life." --- Molly McMillan
About the teacher…
Kim Dupuis, Founder of Actor’s Edge Studio and Founding Artistic Director of The Edge Ensemble Theatre Company, holds an MFA in Acting, and has been teaching acting in and around Keene for the last fifteen years! Kim creates a non-competitive, ensemble-oriented, safe, stimulating, supportive and non-judgmental environment which allows students to take chances and experience growth and development.
I just want to say from experience that anyone who takes Kim's class WILL be a better actor! A great opportunity to learn from a master and grow as an artist! --- Damien Licata

I have had the amazing opportunity to work with Kim Dupuis in her acting classes since the fall of 2015. I have been a dedicated student of her own personal Stanislavski-based System. I have been seeing the benefits of her teaching in my own steady, gradual improvement in each of the five shows I have been a part of, since then, with The Edge Ensemble Theatre Company that she has brilliantly directed me in. I strongly recommend her classes for any aspiring actor or actress who is interested in growing and evolving as a stage performer. --- Thomas Bernstock

There are no “make-up” classes. In the case of a serious illness, when you think you might have to miss more than one class, you can choose to drop out of the current month’s classes. I will apply the balance of your days to the next month’s class if you give me at least 48 hours notice. Or you can always choose to go to the daily rate if you feel like you may not be able to commit to a weekly class. The daily rate is $60 per day.
