quick peek on our school activities 

The Goodman Acting School of the Negev was established in 2005 with the sole purpose of being a professional institute that will train actors, develop talents and give its students the tools and knowledge needed for their future in the industry. 
 
Goodman is a 3- year acting school, focusing on acting technique, movement, speech, theatre history, and community outreach. Students attend class 5 days a week taking classes ranging from Shakespeare to Stanislavski to improvisation to acting for the camera, honing their skills and developing their repertoire. All of the acting classes offered are accompanied with dance and movement courses (musical theatre, ballet, fight choreography, mask work, etc.) along with voice and speech. Goodman believes in training and producing well-rounded actors who are prepared to work in any artistic field.

During their 3rd and final year at Goodman students enter a residency year, working as an ensemble to produce and perform 6-8 productions, including shows from a worldwide repertoire. Students take part in the productions on stage as well as off stage, participating in creative meetings, scenery, costumes, directing, budget management, and ticket sales. After this year, students are equipped with the proper knowledge and professionalism required in the field. Goodman gives students the tools to be able to successfully advance in acting all throughout Israel.

A unique requirement Goodman offers is its community program. The community program was started based on the belief that close ties between students and the community contributes to as sense of social responsibility. At Goodman, we strongly believe at the end of this process young artist will emerge as better individuals, more sensitive to their surroundings, and more aware of their role and impact as artists. 

The school also works closely with The Be’er Sheva Theater; therefore graduates are eligible to become the future actors of the ensemble along with other key theaters in Israel.
