Acting-A-Part

Lights, camera, action! 

Looking to become the next big name in Hollywood?  Or do you think your child has what it takes to become the next Disney star?  With the help of Acting-A-Part Theater Company, your family’s dreams can become a reality!

HipNJ’s Chris La Forgia recently chatted with program founder and owner, Erika Lupo.  Erika says that her program can be summarized by her company’s slogan:  “Bridging the Gap From School Play to Broadway.”   From television to film, theater classes and more, Acting-A-Part provides all types of acting workshops that fits the student’s needs and desires.  Even if he or she doesn’t walk away a movie star, pupils develop self-confidence, discipline and teamwork skills, essential in succeeding on the “Great White Way” of life.

Acting-A-Part offers a variety of services, including summer camps and birthday parties.  Taking Acting-A-Part’s theater classes will show you or your child the ropes of what it takes to create a show-stopping production, while their film and TV workshops involve shooting on-location.  Students then get to enjoy seeing their work on the big screen, thanks to Acting-A-Part’s relationships with local movie theaters.

Conveniently locate in Ridgewood and Sparta, New Jersey, Erika is striving to make Acting-A-Part a household name around New Jersey and eventually, the country.
