Reviews and Testimonials


Mrs B Price
The best find ever for my son who has been to Act Now! for a year now. He has gained confidence and developed skills he didn't realise that he had. Sue Russell-Curtis is a fantastic leader/teacher and my son looks forward to every Saturday. The kids are fantastic and they are just like one big family. I can't recommend Act Now enough!

Mrs S Gower
My 16 and 18 year old sons love Act Now! They have attended a variety of stage performance schools both locally and in London, in the words of my elder son “Act Now! Surpasses all others!” 
I have found Act Now! to be professional, supportive and encouraging towards both my son's passion to attend university and drama school. Thanks to Sue and her amazing team my elder son's first Trinity Guildhall exam at Grade 7 resulted in distinction, gaining extra UCAS points should we need them. 
If you are looking for a drama school that treats your child as an individual that goes the extra mile and offers the benefit of belonging to a family of passionate drama performers then I can highly recommend you call Act Now!

Mrs E Hartless
My 15 year old daughter is one of those girls who tends to underestimate her abilities and as a result lacks confidence. She has been going to Act Now! for a year now and the change in her after just a few weeks was incredible. The tutors are caring and the way the students are with each other is lovely. It is certainly a safe, nurturing and fun environment.

Mrs J Hart
My daughter (now 20) attended Act Now! for four years. During this time she gained in self-confidence because of the fantastic, non-judgemental and friendly environment of Act Now! She became a determined performer, and also through Act Now! succeeded in getting Agent representation. Excellent Drama school and I would highly recommend it.

Mrs T Baker
My son (now 13) has been involved with Act Now! for nearly four years and his experience - and ours - has been entirely positive. Act Now! gave him the encouragement and training that helped him to land West End roles in first Matilda the Musical and now a lead in Billy Elliot. The environment is a perfect combination of inclusive and aspirational, and what they achieve in their weekly classes and holiday courses - without any entry-level auditions - always delights and impresses. 
The quality of the teaching is superb, and every child is given the opportunity and the help they need to shine in just the way they need to. They're all stars in the Act Now! family, and Sue and the other teachers never fail to make them feel that way. 
Act Now! is everything a stage school should be, and more - confidence-building, professional, inspirational and nurturing. When my son isn't treading the professional boards, he's always happy to come back to Act Now and I would recommend it to everyone!

Mrs J Izzard
A wonderful environment for children of all ages and beyond. Professional and dedicated tutors who instil confidence in their pupils. 
I have attended Act Now theatrical performances and End of Year Showcases for the past ten years - each show provides joy for the audience and cast alike. Your child/children would enjoy being part of this team on a weekly basis - I know it!

Mrs C Mercer
If you want the best for your child then ActNow! is the way to go! I can vouch for this - both my daughters have thrived in ActNow!'s fantastic creative environment. They instil an inner confidence in all of their pupils which cannot be matched. A fabulous bunch of dedicated tutors who genuinely care about and nurture each and every one of the kids who are lucky enough to be part of the unbeatable ActNow!

Mrs S Daniels
My daughter (age 7) lives for her Act Now! class on Saturday. It has been so lovely to see her confidence blossom and her skills develop in acting, singing and dancing. Fantastic class content, wonderful tutors and a lovely theatre venue. I highly recommend it.
