Mission Statement

The mission of Acting Up Productions is to inspire and expand the craft and techniques of the performing arts, through education provided by experienced, multi-talented instructors who hope to enhance the performer’s quality and understanding of their individual gifts, while instilling a deeper respect for the arts and ultimately building community involvement.


Acting Up Productions, LLC was formed from the passion of a combined total of 35 years of experience in the performing arts.  The company hopes to provide a quality of education not often found in theatre classes.  Acting Up goes beyond the “how” (how you work, how you direct, how you act) to the “why” – (why you work, why you direct, why you act) – by assisting students in discovering and utilizing their vulnerabilities and experiences, thus incorporating their reason into action.

Acting Up Productions, LLC hopes to build community involvement by producing at least 2 fundraising stage productions a year (for the first four years).  This will also give students of Acting Up a hands-on opportunity to utilize their newly discovered skills and techniques.

Finally, Acting Up Productions, LLC is passionate about all forms of art.  To help instill a deeper respect for the arts as a whole, the Acting Studio space will double as an art gallery.  An artist-in-residence will run the gallery and also be given free art studio space in the office area.
