Tameka Cruel studied at Chapman University in Orange Ca, where she received her degree in Theatre. After taking time away from the main stage, Tameka found herself coaching her son Seth Carr, and mentoring other young actors which became her new found passion. While having much success with her son, Tameka envisioned a studio that would allow other young actors to learn all the necessary tools to master their craft. A space where Creativity ,Confidence and Characters are made!
Our mission is to create a fun and disciplined environment for our young actors to explore all elements of developing characters with confidence.
Learning how to utilize the body and voice as a tool rather than focusing on just memorizing lines. Bringing the scene to LIFE! So lets PLAY!
We all love hearing the words "BOOKED IT!"
But the question everyone wants to know is, what are those actors doing to book the JOB and ROOM.
Making strong choices, staying committed to the character, learning to take risk and being able to take direction when given all lead to BOOKING!

Character breakdown teaches our young actors to find specifics for their characters such as ( age, gender, ethnicity and behavior).
