We have so many working young actors, booking commercial, film & television work. Breakout star and Emmy nominee Julia Garner (featured in the hit series of Ozark, Maniac, The Americans, Waco, and more) originally joined us at T. Schreiber Studio as a teen to overcome her shyness. Her work with instructor Pamela Scott gave her the skills and confidence to audition and land these coveted roles. She still works with Pam today!

Our Kid & Teen acting classes are a great way to introduce them to the wonderful world of acting, while building confidence and nurturing skills in taking direction, collaboration, and working as part of a team.

The goal is for students to develop a strong acting foundation through improvisation, character development and scene work. Students learn to follow performance instincts, take direction, collaborate, and work as part of a team. Focus placed on the skills to successfully audition and land the job.

The best part? All our classes are limited to small groups to allow for individualized instruction and feedback.
