Rave Reviews from some of our Class Act parents:
“Class Act IS a class act, from summer camp, to classes, to performances, my family loves this place!!” ~Erin Tarr
“Our daughter has participated in Class Act’s theatre programs for four years and has loved every moment. She has developed a sense of self confidence that we never thought possible in a child. Class Act’s instructors are top notch. They care about the kids and encourage them to be their best without competing against each other.” ~Johnalene RadekDSC_0262
“We feel so fortunate that our son has been able to work with Jaclyn Loewenstein at Class
Act. The classes are a highlight of each week and each session has an awesome performance at the conclusion, but most importantly it has facilitated a love and capability for music and theater that carries well beyond Class Act itself.  Our son now has confidence in auditions and eagerly pursues new theater opportunities, where he has excelled and had great roles and experiences.  We are so grateful for having such an incredible theater resource in our community!”

~Eric Schacht
