I just brought my my son in to JRP last night, and my husband and I are in the process of signing him up. The staff there was very friendly and made my son feel comfortable. I was just browsing the internet to make sure that this was the direction that we wanted to go with his passion. His audition was not like anything that I have read about on the internet. Our experience was very one-on-one, with much attention given to my son. After speaking with parents of several clients that already attend JRP Pittsburgh and the online research, we feel that this is the right fit for him. In response to several of the comments below, we feel the same about the investment, and how legitiment this place is. The office was clean and very tidy. We are excited to become clients!
My daughter has been a client of JRP Pittsburgh since she was 4yrs old and is now 6yrs old. She absolutley loves going to her coaching sessions with her acting coach and has an agent now. It is well worth every penny we have invested in her. Her confidence has gone through the roof and has built a level of character in her that my husband and I never could have done. It is such a pleasure to see her doing something she loves, "being the center of ATTENTION" and knowing she is on her way to making money doing it. We are so relieved to not be throwing away money on dance, gymastics and cheerleading anymore because after all that will never pay for her college tuition in the future and this IS !!
I have pursued many different modeling and acting companies and this one is the only one I have found that has the legacy of being in the buisness for over 80 years and actually gives you the exposure necessary to break into the business. They actually market you to REAL agents that can get you a job in the buisness. I highly recommend that anyone that is serious about wanting to act or model and they want a fair chance in the entertainment business this is the place to be. Everyone is very professional and I have learned so much about the business and become a more well rounded person which has helped me greatly in my auditions.
