Important Disclosure

Actors Training Ground in North Carolina is not affiliated with any business using the same name in California or any other state. My business is a legitimate acting studio. I do not offer placement for jobs. My only purpose to provide actors classes to study and practice the craft of acting in a safe environment.

Description: We are on the front porch of Skeet's house in a small mid western town. It is evening, and senseless death is on the rampage. That day, several upstanding citizens have been murdered by a psychopath on the loose, and Earl is determined to do something about it. Earl is a macho fool, one of life's losers, and he sees this as an opportunity to restore some of his lost status in the community. What he does not see is that the psycho may be closer to home than he could ever imagine. A success on Broadway, Heartland works both as a psychological drama and as an engrossing murder mystery.
Our Summer Intensive production is Heartland by Kevin Heelan.

Performance dates are August 19th and 20th, 2017.
Tickets are $15.

Due to the lack of interest for teen classes at Actors Training Ground. We will not be offering teen acting classes in the fall. If you are looking for teen classes, you can try Raleigh ACT.

We are working on our fall schedule now. These are the classes we are considering: Acting 1: Building the Basics, Acting 2: Justification and Action, Acting 3: Character Development, Improv, Acting for the Camera, and Scene Study. We will be making our decision in the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned.
