The staff at JRP are the best in the business. The owner GP is a bit intense at times but the best none the less. Perfection is what they strive for and always achieve.

I've gotten about 20 different opinions re this business... so far, this company has been worked out for us. Personally I don't care if my kid becomes famous, I just see that she's happy when I pick her up - which is everything to me. However, every week she auditions there, and two weeks ago got a call back from Abrams - an agent.

Our meeting is in two weeks - we'll see what happens then...

Pros: nice people, good connections

Cons: no loitering in the halls - must shop on 34th street

I received a card in the mail to audition for John Robert Powers here in Houston, Tx. I had acting experience and childhood attempts at modeling under my belt. We auditioned and the director became enamored with my acting skills. I was accepted on the spot to this school. I was excited. My mom was so happy that she paid the $2000 for me to attend this acting/modeling school. I was told at first that it would include head shots, and acting classes. I instead was forced to begin with "image classes". These just taught me how to walk runway (though at 5'1 I was never going to do runway). I never was allowed to attend my acting classes. Later on I was hospitalized with kidney stones and missed 3 classes. I was promised that I could make them up. I made one up and it was a repeat of the runway class. They would have phony directors come in and tell you how fit you were for a part they had on tv. The directors were to return. We called back and the school had been shut down. This was only a matter of months! We have filed complaints. JRP is all over the internet for fraud. We are left minus $2,000 and I'm done with acting and modeling. Thankfully I grew up and decided to get a real job. Keep in mind this is the Houston location. Another interesting thing is that John Robert Powers aren't even accredited or licensed.. or so I was told. It's like a mom running a modeling school out of her living room.
