The New Acting Company has become known for its vibrant classes as well as its lively, high-quality family productions which showcase our talented students, teachers and administrators.
Students cast in our annual professional productions not only have an opportunity to showcase their talents but an opportunity to apply what they have learned in class to a professional atmosphere. Working with professional actors and designers not only helps to increase students awareness of the theater but encourages them to pursue their acting dreams in other venues.

What the Critics Say

“And you thought the cast of Spring Awakening was young!” -Barbara Hoffman, NY Post – Once Upon a Pandora’s Box, 2007
“More than a lesson on good behavior for children. It is also a lesson on how children’s theater can be clever without being dull, and amusing without being dumb” -Lauren Snyder, Offoffonline - Sideways Stories from Wayside School, 2006
“Monica Flory’s script is both scrupulously faithful to Rudyard Kipling and completely original in its approach…created a vibrant, wild world…ingenious costumes, these actors may be the most convincing stage animals south of “The Lion King”…easily appeals to theatergoers.” -Laurel Graeber, New York Times - The Jungle Book, 2005
“The New Acting Company embodies the best kind of children’s theatre…the pacing is brisk, the writing is earnest, and the staging is savvy and sophisticated.” -Martin Denton, NewYorkTheatre.com – Wild Thing, 2003
