Kids’ Acting Classes at Gray Studios

Master Teacher David Gray
Back in June I was invited to bring my children to a commercial audition workshop to get a taste of the services that Gray Studios, an acting coaching and teaching business that operates all over Los Angeles, provides in our area. My younger son, who had just starred as “third paperboy from the left” in a musical production of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, was eager to try it out.

Parents are not required to stay during the workshop, so I went to Trader Joe’s. Naturally. The problem is that my son barely gave me any information about the class! Just like with regular school, all I got out of him was a series of one word answers. How was it? “Good.” What did you do? “Games.” Do you want to audition for commercials now? “Sure.” Don’t get me wrong – he liked it. But he was done performing, so he wouldn’t even describe it to me. I know he had fun, because the teachers told me he was hamming it up with the rest of them.

So even though I can’t tell you exactly what happened, I can tell you more about Gray Studios. They are a group of working actors who have over 100 years combined experience working in film and television. Their classes include Audition Technique for film and television, and they partner with entertainment industry leaders for classes in Commercial, Voice Over, and Improv.

Our family enjoyed one complimentary workshop to facilitate this feature. I hope this helps you with a resource for your budding star!
