Comments from the Artistic Director:
“I am an unabashed lover of performers. Actors from eight to eighty show us our humanity by revealing themselves in brave and vulnerable ways that most people can’t imagine doing publicly. That takes courage. And unlike many professions or callings, an actor can work from eight to eighty and still be relevant, involved and inspiring. After spending nearly all my life involved in the process, I still feel incredibly moved and motivated by the people I teach, as do all of the instructors at Schoolcreative. I am continually amazed by how many stories an actor can tell or how many diverse and fascinating characters one actor can create. We believe our job is to help you become a successful actor. We welcome all who share our passion for both the world of film and television, and all of the arts.
