REVIEWS FROM PAST CAMPERS:
“I thought it was incredibly fun to be involved in the whole process from start to finish and I loved getting to be both a director and an actor!” ~Sophie, Camper
“I think your camp is the best camp ever. While there are a lot of acting camps in Charlotte, very few offer writing and directing as well. I also enjoyed the guests you brought in.” ~Prentiss, Camper
“I got a lot of insider info on how this industry works, and the ins and outs of casting plus more. It was awesome! Thank you Jon & Fiona!” ~Jared, Camper
“Amelia had a great time at your camp last year. She learned so many additional skills to acting in a fun and kid friendly way. Everything she learned she has continued to apply it to her love of acting. Thank you to you and Jon for being amazing mentors to Amelia Rose and all the young aspiring actors.
She looks forward to another fun summer with you guys!”
