“After I took Sheri’s class I felt so good about myself. I knew that I had acting talent, but Sheri and her staff brought it out of me in ways that I never dreamed of.”
(Susan age 14)

“In the 3 day workshop Sheri makes you feel like you are the only actor in the room. I was hesitant to take these type of workshops as I thought everyone would know more than I did, yet I found that every actor, at every stage in their acting journey or career, or even age, at the end of the 3 days emerged from dull stones to brilliant shining actor diamonds. Shining brilliantly!!!!  All students had new found confidence in themselves and what they could offer of themselves to an audience. I highly recommend this class!!!!”
