My husband is also an actor and theatre teacher. We work hard to get our students into the top theatre colleges and universities around the nation. We have a lot of awards from Shakespeare, acting and musical theatre competitions. Our forte is Shakespeare, cutting competition pieces and doing award-winning musicals in under 6 weeks. We love what we do and we love kids!
