Take Your Acting Talent To The Next Level…

Rita Litton


My name is Rita Litton and I am an award-winning New York based acting teacher and coach. If you expected you are in the right place! As Director and Founder of ACTeen, the nation’s first film acting training program for young adults for over twenty five years, I am pleased to showcase my latest venture. Rita Litton RLS offers small group on-camera film, television, or theater acting classes for adults and teens, as well as  private coaching for all ages. Now is a great time to study.  You may study in New York City,  or for your convenience,  I also offer online small group classes, or private instruction. No matter where in the world you live I can work with you!  Online Zoom classes offer unique and valuable instruction to students, as all our 2023 students confirmed. See “Testimonials” for more comments!

Check out this site for upcoming information on special courses  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 performing arts college or high school auditions (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”.

New York acting classes are meeting again “live” in New York City, or choose popular Zoom online options.  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.”
