Since joining John and Lisina at The Company Acting Studio, we have seen a dramatic increase in our callback responses from casting directors and our son Khari has gained a deeper appreciation and understanding of the acting industry. We have talked to other parents about their coaches and have seen Khari compete with other talented children from across the country and have come to realize that The Company Acting Studio is the "best in the business". I would recommend them to anyone who is seriously interested in pursuing a career in this industry and who want to be associated with ethical, talented, and trustworthy people! -Earl/Attallah King

The Company Acting Studio has coaches that can help you become the actor you have always wanted to be. There are classes for the beginner to the professional. From the young to the old. They also have informative seminars, sometimes with guest speakers & coaches. This is the place to be to get noticed.

Our 11yo daughter has been acting for almost four years and has trained with other "top-shelf" studios in Atlanta; our reviews for those have been lukewarm. Our experiences with THE COMPANY ACTING STUDIO have been truely AMAZING; we have watched our childs inner talents blossom and her skills sharpen during the year that she has been fortunate enough to be able to train with the gang @ THE COMPANY. We highly recommend in every catagory!

The Company Acting Studio Employs well trained acting coaches and provides and educational experience second to none. This is my daughter's second year with the Company and she has learned a variety of acting techniques. Most importantly she enjoys the course work and her acting skills are flourishing and improving. The professionalism, experience and value offered at The Company is second to none. I highly recommend The Company Acting Studio.

The studio is the gold standard in Atlanta for the best acting school. Whether you or your child is actively seeking industry work or just quality acting education--this place provides it. No selling job, no bull. You need them--they don't need you. A breath of fresh air in an often superficial and cynical industry. I have a child who has studied here for 3 years. Her high school acting teacher said he had never seen a better audition.

I made a decision in 9th grade that changed my life. I auditioned for my first play never having thought seriously of acting before that. I was hooked. Since then it's the only thing that has stuck with me. Acting is all I want to do. I found The Company Acting Studio in 2006. After years of ignoring the signs, I finally took a leap of faith and began taking classes. I felt at home from day one. I have learned so much and feel so secure with everyone here. Anyone who attends any of the programs and is serious about the craft will grow and become a stronger actor. I can not convey what attending this school has done for me...all I can say is that it's the only place for me.

The Company Acting Studio trains the "whole actor" not just for a particular role, etc, but the complete package. Their goal is not how many "Mega Stars" they produce, but rather how many relationships they are able to nurture, and how many enriched actors with a love for acting they aid in fulfilling his/her dreams. Lisina and John have a true love for the business that reaches far beyond customary boundaries. They love working with young people, it shows in all they do, from daily encouragement, to intense constructive recommendations. The talent is required take ownership of his/her work. They are trained and well prepared to walk into any acting audition or circumstance capable of producing the highest quality work. The Company Acting Studio trains great professionals and wonderful accountable and committed kids. Training not duplicated by any other in the area. I highly recommend them. - Tammy Carter - parent
My daughter has been with the Company Acting Studio for several years. She has gotten the highest quality education in acting from the fine teachers at the Company. She is so confident and prepared for any audition that comes her way now. It is truly a great acting school!
The technique, the people, the trust, the knowledge...there is nowhere else in Atlanta to get this kind of acting training. Lisina and John care about their students, care about the craft, and care about helping actors reach new levels in their abilities whether it be for stage or screen. I have grown so much in my time at the Company...and I know I am a much stronger actor because of the training and support I have received.
The Company teaches you to look within yourself and use the God given talents that you possess. It's an enviroment for those just learning as well as the strictly training professional. No gimmicks, no selling, just the truth. I've learned not only about the craft of acting, but about myself, and about the whole of humanity. The Company provides the education, training, and freedom that any aspiring actor dreams of. I personally thank Lisina and John for their honesty, comradery, and their dedication to their students. Through the company you realize that acting is truly an art that can cross cultural boundaries and bring all of mankind together. That's what the Company gives you - the truth.
