Mischief Makers’ inaugural production

Posted by roberta in Featured, News. No Comments

9th August

The Mischief Makers Theatre Company came out of artists’ hunger to create. It all starts with a dream, an idea. An idea to collaborate, to create, to cultivate and ultimately to share. We as teachers spend many hours planting seeds in the minds and hearts of our young students. Year after year we nourish and encourage that seed to grow, and each year we watch the harvest take place as our students step onto the Tantrum Theater stage and perform. But the seed within each of us also needs to be nurtured, and what better place to do it than right here where so much magic takes place.

In an actors’ life you come across many talented people. There are some you are immediately drawn to, maybe because of their talent, or their personality (or perhaps both) and you remember that person … Read More »

Roberta is named a Power Woman in Business!

26th April

Brooklyn women shone bright on Wednesday, March 16 as 34 of the borough’s successful entrepreneurs, business owners and community leaders were honored at Star Network’s 2016 Power Women in Business Awards and Networking Event. Held at the always extravagant Grand Prospect Hall, the evening’s honorees, exhibitors and guests dined, danced and donated the night away, at an event that spotlighted some extraordinary ladies and the causes they hold dear.

 Among those ladies was our very own Roberta Loew!

Ms. Loew has been the co-owner and creative director for Acting Out, a Brooklyn based acting and vocal performance school for kids and teens, since 2005. In 2010 the business outgrew its location and needed a new venue. When she and her business partner husband were toiling around ideas on where to move the business places like Manhattan had came up and Roberta, who grew up in Bensonhurst Brooklyn … Read More »

Two Acting Out students share the lead!

Posted by admin in News. No Comments

26th April

Julia Ecock and Alexis Taliento have both been Acting Out students for years! They both studied with us to get into Mark Twain JHS 3 years ago (and got in!), and studied with us again this year to get into the top performing arts High Schools of their choice (and got in!) so it’s no surprise that Mark Twain had a tough decision to make when casting their lead in this year’s production. We’re so proud of the both of you! You each brought your own style and flair to Sally Bowles, and both rocked the role!
