Each has a unique way of tapping into an actor's strengths while giving practical tools to work on any challenges.

"I am a working commercial actor who wanted to improve my acting skills. Sedgwick Russell Acting Studio allowed me to improve my abilities by practicing monologues and scenes at The Theater Center on Broadway. Rob Sedgwick and Cathy Russell actually taught the courses. The class size was small; I was able to perform on stage in every class; and even, showcase in front of industry professionals. My skills quickly improved and my career was taken to the next level. I loved my experience at Sedgwick-Russell and personally recommend the studio to both the novice as well as the professional."- Larry Wendorf

 

"Cathy and Rob are the best! As someone just getting started in my acting career, I couldn't wish for more perfect pair of instructors. Nurturing and caring, but also honest and direct with their feedback and approach as instructors has allowed me to grow and develop beyond my own expectations in less than a year of acting. In that time, I have been cast in principal roles in stage plays and a web series. I'm very optimistic I will continue to grow, learn and receive more opportunities to perform as long as I continue to work hard and follow the instruction of Cathy and Rob."  - Travon McCall
