This class has been running for years with rave reviews from students and here’s just one example!
“Fantastic experience with the Richard Kline Sitcom Workshop from NYCastings! You should always properly vet an acting instructor before taking their class, and there s no one more qualified to teach a sitcom workshop than the great Richard Kline. In this class each student received special one on one attention and notes from a man who worked closely with legends like John Ritter and Don Knotts on one of TV’s top rated programs. The final 2 weeks of the class revolved around Richard preparing us for scenes that we performed in front of a collection of respected casting agents. This class is a golden opportunity for any actor in the NYC area.”
