“My son Derek is heading to Broadway (Simba, The Lion King) thanks to Ms. Roberta and her talented staff. My son could not have accomplished his goal if it wasn’t for Acting Out. If your child’s desire is to sing or act, Acting Out will make it happen!”

“The believers at Acting Out make your child confident at a skill they love to do. They teach the art of acting so well that walking into a room at an audition [is] easy. My son was taught by Roberta and her talented and dedicated team. He was accepted into a Middle School Drama program that was his first choice. He also started booking more commercials since he began with Acting Out as well. Overall great experience. Can’t wait to sign my daughters up!”

“There is a lot of enthusiasm in a small amount of space at this place! My daughter really takes to the lessons, both private and group. I am 100 percent sure we could not have successfully navigated high-school drama auditions without their knowledge, support, and guidance. They are straight shooters and my advice to parents who turn to them for audition help is that you take any pointers they have seriously and respect their direction to your kid, because they really know best what is going to go well in front of judges. Also they are not ALL about audition prep…my daughter still loves going to her weekly class even though auditions have been over for months. The classes are just very fun, and the kids love to be there.”

“My child came to Acting Out! to prepare for the high school auditions. What she received was far more then just the appropriate training. She has an amazing Vocal coach as well as a whole curriculum of classes in preparation for this rigorous audition process. Once the audition process is over we will continue with her vocal training as well as an acting class. She has met a group of kids that have become friends to her which is huge in this sometimes scary and isolating process. Roberta and John, as well as the staff are personally involved with all their students and are available with questions or concerns along the way. I would highly recommend Acting Out! to any child looking for either audition prep or a place to explore their talents.”

“Both of my children attend Acting Out! My daughter has been attending Acting Out! for the past six years and my son for the past four years. Over the years they have had many accomplishments because of the wonderful staff at Acting Out! They have trained them to be the actors they are today. My son was accepted into the drama program at Mark Twain. My daughter was also accepted into the drama program at Mark Twain and with continued training, she later got accepted into the drama program at LaGuardia High School, which is no small feat. She has also been cast in an independent film and is so grateful to all her teachers for all their love and support. She is so thankful for the opportunity to be assistant teaching this year at Acting Out!. The teachers at Acting Out are truly top-quality professionals with the knowledge, passion and drive to help any kid succeed.”

Elaine F.

“I am so proud that my daughter Marisa has been part of the “Acting Out Family” for the past six years. Through Acting Out, she has grown to be a confident and wonderful actress. Thanks to Acting Out, Marisa was cast in an independent film which won “Best Feature Film” at the East Harlem International Film Festival. The audition prep program successfully helped her get through the grueling high school auditions. She now attends Edward R. Murrow High School and is in the theatre program. The Acting Out staff is the best, we love them all!”

Marisa F. (Elaine’s Daughter)

“Acting Out is amazing!!!! We learn a lot and have fun at the same time. I discovered a love for acting I didn’t know I had. Acting Out helped me with monologues that got me into Mark Twain’s drama program and Edward R. Murrow’s theatre program. I was also in an independent film because of Acting Out. Thanks to Acting Out for all their encouragement and support it means so much to me.”

Amy B.

“We came to Acting Out 2 years ago with no real agenda. Our son was interested in acting but nothing serious. In the past 2 years this mild interest of his has formed into a serious passion. Last week we received our acceptance letter to Mark Twain for the Drama cluster! Roberta, Vera, Justin, Sarah and the staff at Acting Out have been amazing coaches and mentors to our son and we are grateful for this 5 star training that’s offered right here in our neighborhood. Just walk in the studio and you will see the signed photos on the wall of people who took classes there and are now on Broadway!”

“I knew I had made the right decision to have her train for her high school auditions at Acting Out. When a teacher connects with a child and knows how to bring out the best in them, I have a deep respect for them and the work they do. That includes all of the teachers from Acting Out that have worked and continue to work with my daughter. Julia continues to learn and grow and most importantly, have fun at Acting Out. To put it in her own words, ‘Now, that’s what acting class should be!'”

Daniel S. (former student)

“I wasn’t that good on being an actor but Acting Out helped me get into my dream middle school- Mark Twain and now helping me get into Laguardia. The teachers are amazing. The activities are fun. I fully recommend it! It has gotten dozens of kids on Broadway, Netflix, shows, movies and much more! Thx to Acting out to helping me! I love the Acting Out experience and I bet anyone else would too.”
