Andrew Wade joined the Royal Shakespeare Company as assistant voice director in 1987 and in 1990 became head of voice, a position he would hold for more than ten years. Mr. Wade recorded Working Shakespeare, a series of voice and text work featuring Helen Hunt, Samuel L. Jackson and Claire Danes. He also served as text consultant for the movie Shakespeare In Love. Now, Mr. Wade continues to work all over the world in a freelance capacity. Aside from the Stella Adler Studio, he also teaches at the Delaware University, the National Theater School in Montreal, and the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis. He is also currently teaching Master Classes at The Juilliard School in New York.

Don Williams is the Associate Head of Stella Adler Acting Studio. He has directed numerous off- and off-off Broadway productions such as Turn of the Screw, The Tempest, Macbeth, Miss Julie, and many others. Some of the productions he has directed at the Stella Adler Acting Studio are Death of a Salesman, Twelve Angry Jurors, Suddenly Last Summer, The Blue Room—all sold out weeks before the opening. As a professional actor Mr. Williams has performed for the Harold Clurman Lab Theater, The Denver Theater Company, and the California Shakespeare Fest, among others.

Stella Adler believes that "Growth as an actor and growth as a human being are synonymous." Adler's philosophy has served as a guiding light to many prominent actors in the business today.

The Stella Adler Studio of Acting, based in New York and Los Angeles, is committed to create an environment that nurtures theater artists who value humanity—their own and others'—as their first priority while providing art and education to the greater community. Stella Adler's holistic approach strengthens and develops the actor's intellect, body, voice, spirit, and imagination.

Among the actors who studied in the Stella Adler Studio of Acting are Marlon Brando, Robert De Niro, Warren Beatty, Candice Bergen, Kevin Costner, Benicio Del Toro, Salma Hayek, Mark Ruffalo, Susan Sarandon, and Cybill Shepard.

Founded in 1967, Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) is an organization of creative and critical artist-teacher-cultural workers committed to artistic excellence and a people’s culture that casts shackles and fosters both personal fulfillment and social transformations. It roots its foundation in the use of theater that is distinctly Filipino as a tool for social change and development. The company has lived by this principle as it evolves with the changes that occurred within and around it. It continues to push first-rate quality theater while never taking for granted that the art it produces and teaches always serves a greater purpose.
