“Taking Marnie's summer intensive was one of the best decisions I've ever made. A few years ago, I took one that focused on Deaf actors and the Deaf culture. It immediately inspired me to pursue the language and even led to me booking a role on Switched At Birth! I highly recommend it! -Parker Harris

Ron Howard. Director
“Marnie Cooper's understanding and love of children, combined with the discipline of her technique, allows each child to grow to his or her full potential. I recommend Marnie to anyone (child or teen) who is serious about acting.”

“Marnie's book is a fabulously relevent and perceptive book on the most important elements young actors and thier parents should know about the craft as well as the business of auditioning.I would recommend it to anyone who wants to de-mystify the process of the art and the audition”
