“Our Daughter is having the time of her life at HTAC and we couldn’t be happier! Her confidence has soared and we see it in everything she does!
Scott and Christa have put together a wonderful school for kids with interest in the arts. And we love that they work with other local schools like Maestro Studios and Tambussi Dance Studio to put on productions. We love the cooperation and collaboration of local talent!
Our daughter has grown tremendously! Thank you for all that you do HTAC!!!”
-Kevin and Lisa Roche
“Haddonfield Theatre Arts Center offers professional training from professionals!
My daughter has become confident while having fun with a group that is nurtured and hardworking. Christa and Scott give it their “ALL” and nothing less!”
“Our son has been with H.T.A.C. for the past year. We have seen tremendous growth during that time. Musically, his singing has improved; largely due to Scott and Christa’s individual help and encouragement in finding music appropriate for his young voice. He has also shown a new confidence while acting and an ability to connect with the audience. Christa and Scott offer amazing personal support and warmth as teachers and as people, they really care about each of their students.”
“This is our 8 year olds second year at HTAC, and she tried it because she tries everything- sports and arts. But her reaction to singing and acting has been something wholly different than every other endeavor. She is positively ecstatic about both practice and performances, and each has surfaced a newfound confidence in her that had been latent. She’s exposed to kids from all over Haddonfield and beyond Haddonfield, has wonderful middle and high school mentors, and the teachers are equal parts caring and competent. It’s without a doubt her favorite enrichment exercise.”

“We love H.T.A.C !!! It began as a camp to get the kids involved over the summer. We were already singing, and acting out stories at home so this camp was appealing. After surfing the web, the “Broadway Babies” program seemed ideal. Although it was further from our home than other places out there, H.T.A.C. just seemed “to fit”. The kids loved it, the people are warm and nurturing, and my semi-shy children were coming out of their shells, even singing in the grocery and department stores!! My daughter, even with hearing disabilities, was over the moon with the encouragement and support she received at H.T.A.C., and puts on “shows” for friends and family : ) So here we are from our “summer camp” in to our continued sessions at H.T.A.C. we couldn’t have chosen a better place to grow, learn, and explore!!! Thank you Christa & Scott & the wonderful cast at H.T.A.C!!!”
“Our daughter has been enrolled in HTAC for almost a year. After her first day we asked how it compared to the other acting/singing programs she had participated in and her response was, “It was 1,000 times better!”. She has grown so much and the improvement in her self-confidence has been amazing to watch! We can’t wait until our younger daughter is old enough to start!”
“Scott is an insightful, results-oriented teacher who focuses on relevant preparation for professional or aspiring actors. I’ve had the pleasure of being coached by Scott for a film screen test. My acting background is primarily stage; musical theater. I contacted him for help with character development and screen test preparation, considering the differences between stage and film acting. He readily addressed those issues. But most importantly, as a professional actor with a wealth of real stage and set experience, Scott related to me and my goals. Drawing upon his natural actor’s insight, beyond simple mechanical screen test prep, he worked with me to find real tension and motivation for my role. I look forward to working with him and learning more from him with future roles. ”

“You’re seen their work at Tatem and Central in afterschool enrichment programs. They’ve put on 2 fantastic End of Year Shows and Summer Camp productions – Willy Wonka Jr. and You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown. You’ve probably heard their wonderful Santa’s Workshop Christmas Show in Downtown Haddonfield. HTAC helps our kids to shine on stage and has also really cemented themselves in our community through teaming up with Maestro Studios and Donna Tambussi’s studio…. they are truly AMAZING!”
“HTAC is run by an amazing young couple…..and the level or performance they bring out in the kids is amazing! [Our Daughter] has been a student of theirs from the moment they opened the studio two years ago. The End Of Year Shows that they have put together the past two years have been really impressive. No “here are the 6 year-olds, here are the 7 year olds,” they actually write a show each year and incorporate each kid into it”
“Not only are they running a successful small business, they give back to the community in many ways. There is a true understanding in “it takes a village to raise a child” and I for one, know mine is better off for participating!”
