ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Oct. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- A small acting school in Albuquerque, New Mexico is garnering national recognition both on stage and on screen.
If you have tuned into Breaking Bad, Law & Order: SVU, Longmire, or In Plain Sight chances are you have seen Vivian Nesbitt, owner of Sol Acting Academy on TV. Students and program graduates are getting cast in a ton of roles too. This Fall, Sol students have been performing on stage in New York City, and appearing in international film festivals with their original short films.
Owner Nesbitt and the teachers at Sol are exhilarated by the work their students are booking. Nesbitt is continuously working with the staff to create new courses, to keep up with the demand.
Vivian says, "Our goal is to prepare and empower our students to audition for and book a variety of roles. I get a thrill every time they are cast and we celebrate our students accomplishments every day on our website SolActing.com."
Christina Gopal, a student with her two actor sons since 2012, says: "Sol Acting Academy has been a wonderful, nurturing, and supportive facility for me and my two actor sons. Sol not only teaches and mentors the acting side of stage and screen, they also teach the behind the scenes and business end."
Sol Acting Academy may be located in a strip mall in Albuquerque, New Mexico, but it is attracting actors to come in and train from all over the United States. The Academy offers 3 day intensive courses that have become so popular that they are almost completely sold out for all of 2016. The school has expanded since its start, into a 5000 square ft. building including offices, studios, and a small black box theater, and has served over 600 students so far this year. The course offerings have expanded, and Sol provides part-time employment for twelve professional actors to instruct classes seven days a week. The school offers comprehensive training with students' ages 5 to 95 and all levels of experience.
