Rita Litton Award-Winning Acting Teacher and Coach.


“I believe that acting is action oriented, and emotions are the result of intentions successfully or unsuccessfully achieved. An actor does not come on a set or stage to ‘feel an emotion.” The actor ventures into a dramatic situation to do something. There is a reason why acting is also re-acting. An actor who feels the electric two-way giving and receiving is truly alive.”

Rita Litton (from the book “Acting for Young Actors” by Mary Lou Belli and Dinah Linney)

Wk A & Wk C
*Online via Zoom
Classes offered online are challenging and interactive. Students are warming up, moving, hitting marks, developing strong objectives and freeing their physical behavior. Scenes are shot in a specific ‘box’ or frame–to better duplicate what casting directors are viewing in film audition ‘self-tapes,’ or chemistry reads. Students become comfortable on camera under that tight scrutiny– often in ‘close-up.’ Actors learn how to remember, how to listen, and how to respond.  Classes online are recorded and playbacks are an integral part of every session. Playbacks enable students to better evaluate their work. Throughout the term the work grows more vibrant, specific and spontaneous.

Private coaching in New York City, or via Zoom.

“Well-trained actors of any age are never a casting risk. A well-trained actor knows how to find solutions to problems. They are flexible, easy to direct yet not afraid to make choices. They are well spoken, have ensemble skills, confidence and physical grace. I am attempting to train actors who will walk out of my classes employable; who will be cast worthy because they are responsible to the director and the other actors on the set or stage. An actor who understands the big picture, how the whole environment should come together. Youth affords many opportunities, and opens doors. But the door stays open for the wise actor with training.”

Rita Litton (from the book “How to Be a Working Actor” by Mari Lynn Henry and Lynn Rogers.)
