Great Lakes Michael Chekhov Consortium​

“The consortium is an opportunity to play, to exercise all the many tools I continue to perfect as a professional actor. Focused over a week within a nurturing inspired environment with fabulous teachers, I’m reminded of what brought me to acting in the first place, and filled with the many possibilities that are ahead.”

–LAURA PERROTTA (Great Lakes Theater, Cleveland Playhouse, Dobama Theatre, etc.)

“The Great Lakes Michael Chekhov Consortium is an incredible, immersive experience.  The program teaches practical, useful tools for the actor that can be applied in any and every theatrical experience.  It is an amazing opportunity that I would recommend to any actor who is interested in furthering their craft.”

–SCOTT ESPOSITO (Ensemble Theatre, Blank Canvas, Beck Center, Lakeland Theatre, etc.)

“Just a few months out of the first module, I’ve already witnessed the Technique shape and mold the way I act and direct. I feel myself becoming a different and better theatre artist. More importantly, I find myself connecting with a joy and passion for the craft that I’ve never experienced. I’m having more fun and I’m carrying that spirit of play and discovery into my rehearsals which, quite frankly, is way more enjoyable than feeling like I need to have all the answers...”

–CRAIG JOSEPH (Seat of the Pants Productions, Ensemble Theatre, Weathervane Playhouse, Playwrights Local, etc.)

Mission Statement

We are the Great Lakes Michael Chekhov Consortium (GLMCC) and it is our intent to promulgate and share the work of Michael Chekhov. The consortium concept fits perfectly well with theatre in general but especially with the work of Michael Chekhov in that he celebrated collaboration as imperative in our art. As teachers certified in the Michael Chekhov Technique we are committed to presenting the most comprehensive instruction available to theatre artists. As practitioners we are committed to maintaining original precepts of Chekhov’s work while evolving the technique through constant collaboration with other Chekhov teachers and practitioners the world over. GLMCC takes complete joy in our mission and seeks to instill this atmosphere in all artists associated with us.

Members of our consortium include: Case Western Reserve University, Wayne State University, Northern Kentucky University, Converse College, Appalachian State University, University of the Pacific, City College of New York/CUNY, University of Windsor, and University of Mount Union-our artistic home.
