REVIEWS

Studio Americana is amazing!!! The productions are top notch! It's a wonderful organization that teaches children about theater and the arts. We are lucky to have them as a part of our community...and even luckier to be able to enrich our children's love of theater and acting through such hands on and gifted instruction. My son has been part of several productions and summer camp. He loves them and the instruction he receives and skills he is building are invaluable. Let your imagination roll Studio Americana!!

My kids have absolutely loved this summer camp experience! What a wonderful group and great opportunity so close to home!

My daughters, age 14 and 11, have been involved with Studio Americana the last two years and the experiences have been invaluable. They have taken part in elementary and Middle/High School performances. The instructors guide them in all aspects of a stage production. They feel ownership of the whole production as a result, regardless of the role they may have. They have participated in the summer camp program which is very intensive but thoroughly engaging. They have also done classes in musical theater and creating a musical. No matter they are doing, my girls have always enjoyed every minute of the experience. They have gained confidence and broadened their scope of speaking skills as well. Erin and David encourage my girls to work on areas of weakness and help their strengths shine. The resulting productions and showcases never fail to impress. I highly recommend any class Studio Americana offers.

My daughter age 9 has been involved in Studio Americana and has loved the experience. From summer camp, Page to Stage, to Wizard of Oz, she enjoys working with the Fridays, the other kids, and learning about the theatre process.

The kids are encouraged to work together and help each other build confidence in themselves. My daughter can't wait until the fall program begins.
