New leader for Playhouse

Kareman to top New York acting school

Venerable Gotham acting school Neighborhood Playhouse has named arts exec Pamela Moller Kareman as the org’s new exec director, following in the footsteps of outgoing topper Harold G. Baldridge.

Kareman, a Playhouse graduate who studied there under famed thesping guru Sanford Meisner, comes to her new post following a 15-year tenue as a.d. of the Schoolhouse Theater, a pro troupe in upstate New York that in recent years has seen a handful of productions transfer to Off Broadway runs. She also has taught the Meisner Technique for some 20 years.

Kareman plans to boost the Playhouse’s curriculum with new classes in film and TV auditioning and voiceover technique, as well as expanded one-on-one vocal technique classes and a new course in song interpretation.

Founded in 1928, the Playhouse has a roster of alumni that includes Les Moonves, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton, Allison Janney, Christopher Meloni, Mary Steenburgen and Sherie Rene Scott, among others. Baldridge recently stepped down after 33 years in the org’s top post, and will continue on with the org as an emeritus adviser.
