If you asked me nine months ago, "do you think that acting will help your shyness?" I would say that you’re crazy! But it turns out that I was completely wrong and that taking these acting classes not only helped with my shyness but my confidence and creativity as well. That is all thanks to Jennifer and FPAS!!Student (Age 9)

My daughters have been involved with FPAS for many years. The after school classes are a great introduction to acting, and the summer camp is just amazing. The quality of the production that is put together after only 3 weeks of camp is remarkable. Jennifer is wonderful with the students--getting them all involved and helping each child feel comfortable on stage. I've seen increased confidence in my girls that has carried over to other areas of their lives. They have thoroughly enjoyed their time with the program. I highly recommend FPAS for all ages!
I have been going to the FPAS summer camp since it began, and every year I get even more excited to go! I've really learned to be myself there by bonding with so many amazing people. This camp is where I first fell in love with acting, singing, dancing, and where I get to strengthen my skills by being challenged with some of the best counselors and the best cast mates. It truly is a great summer and life experience, I gained many friendships, supporters, and mentors through this camp. Thank you Jen and all the counselors for everything you've done for me!!Studebt
I've spent my last 4 summers at Fairfield Performing Arts Studio's summer camp. Over time, I have learned so much about myself not only as a performer, but also as a person. With the guidance of Jen and her team of amazing counselors, I've gained a great deal of self-confidence. With this, I have honed my skills as an actor, singer, and dancer. In the process I have also made some of my closest friends who have supported me along the way. I would highly recommend FPAS to any young, aspiring actor/actress who is looking for a fun, nurturing environment in which they can perfect their craft. I credit the camp for helping me discover my true passion, and I can't wait for this summer!Student
