School Notes:

  • ACTeen was created in 1978 by successful theater/commercial actress Rita Litton, who was approached by the Weist-Barron School to develop a special film/theater acting curriculum for teenagers.
  • ACTeen develops dedicated pre-professionals into technically proficient, versatile, and marketable actors. Combining theatrical discipline with spontaneous, effective on-camera acting techniques, students learn to successfully transverse both film and theater media with skill and professionalism.
  • ACTeen believes that acting is action oriented, and emotions are the result of intentions successfully or unsuccessfully achieved. Therefore, various acting techniques are incorporated, including Stanislavsky, Meisner, Uta Hagen & Stella Adler exercises. The goal is to offer possibilities and tools, and more than one path to characterization. Students learn to function among diverse directors and actors with varying acting approaches.
  • In addition students benefit enormously from the video playbacks (the “one picture is worth a thousand words” theory), which are an integral part of the on-camera acting classes and also utilized in elective courses.
