Rita Litton Award-Winning Acting Teacher and Coach.

Take Your Acting Talent To The Next Level…

Rita Litton


My name is Rita Litton and I am an award-winning acting coach and teacher.  I am proud to be the creator of ACTeen Inc., the nation’s first film acting training program for teens & young adults. After serving as ACTeen Director for over thirty years I have transitioned to RLS, Rita Litton Studio. Rita Litton RLS offers film acting or theatre acting technique classes for adults and teens, virtually or in New York City.  I teach beginning acting classes and acting and audition technique for working professionals. I also offer private acting coaching.  You may study acting in New York City, or for your convenience, I offer online acting workshops. No matter where in the world you live, and regardless of your experience,  I can work with you!  Virtual classes offer unique and valuable instruction or audition tips to actors, particularly in this era of submitted online ‘self-tape’ auditions.” See “Testimonials” for comments from our graduates!

Check out this site for upcoming information on acting workshop schedules  or industry events. I am available for one-on-one work for audition coaching and guidance in submitting self-tapes. I am a very helpful monologue audition coach and director for graduate, undergraduate or high school performing arts programs (including finding appropriate classical monologues.) I have extensive experience teaching on camera film acting technique, auditioning for TV series & pilots, voice overs, commercials, career guidance and more! See “About Rita”.

Select  New York acting classes  or choose popular online virtual class options (active class participation, not lecture.)  Courses are open for immediate enrollment. (See: Register to submit your application!).  Please review this site and contact me if you have any questions. I’m happy to arrange your personal plan of study!

Acting Teacher • Coach

“The most rewarding aspect of my job is creating an atmosphere where actors feel free to ‘play’. As an actress I worked with many professional directors through the years. The ones I enjoyed the most, or wanted to work with again, were those that inspired me to take risks,and who gave me freedom to explore. I ask a great deal from my students, so I am thrilled when they rise to the challenge and do something unexpected or brave. That exhilaration, that sense of adrenaline pumping, when the work takes flight…that is any director/teacher’s goal.”
