"Kate! I just heard from Berklee College of Music. I going to be attending! I want to tell you that I am forever grateful for all you have done for me in preparation of my Audition Preparation, Extra Curriculum Development, Summer Program choices, Resume Build and my Artist Statement / Voice Reel. I would not be in this spot if not for you and I am forever appreciative for all the work we accomplished!"
Berklee College Of Music
"My daughter, Melissa has been
accepted to Syracuse University drama
program, #13 best in world. Thanks to
Kate Kennedy for recognizing and nourishing
her talent for all these years!"
- Caroline Pitchford
"My daughter Dorothea is bubbling over with excitement
when she gets in the car after her Saturday lessons with
Kate Kennedy. She just feels as if she is learning so much and
I think feels good about being so productive." - Nancy M.
Paradigm signed Elliot today! Thanks
yay! Thanks for helping him get to
where he is! - Lisa
Kate's instincts for Audition Technique
are razor sharp. - Craig
I recommend these workshops. They teach us how to be better human beings.
Building the ensemble of actors with Kate has been the greatest thing. I'm now totally aware of other people's feelings.
I can distinctly remember the first time I ever walked through the PeachCraft door and up the stairs into the actors studio. I fell in love in an instant. For 2 years I walked through that door every Saturday; and every Saturday I was challenged in my craft, and challenged as a person.
Kate Kennedy has built PeachCraft into a place that pushes young artists, allowing them to explore their creativity and hone their craft in a family-like environment. Kate will teach you the ins and outs of the industry. She offers a well-rounded acting education ranging from commercial technique, to improvisation, to straight drama, and the Michael Chekov technique. I found that the education I received at PeachCraft prepared me extremely well for studying drama at Queen Mary, University of London, BFA program.
Not only does PeachCraft offer you a great acting training, but it is also so much fun. The people I trained with have become my life-long friends. I have so many wonderful memories of laughing till my stomach hurt in the studio.
I am honored to have trained at PeachCraft, and even more honored to still be a part of the PeachCraft community whenever I am home!
PeachCraft Actors Studio will always have a place in my heart!
University of London, BFA
"Kate, you taught me how to act! "
Raymond in DOUBT opposite Meryl Streep
"How impressed and proud I am of you that
you have created a wonderful place for yourself as well
as nurturing the hidden talents of those you touch.
You are a saint."
Fred Caruso - IMDB.com
Biography Channel this week was the first time I really saw Kyra
(IMDB.com) working. She is a professional - Kate, you have taught her well.
She gets nothing but compliments about her abilities. It is a testament
to your technique and what you have brought out in her and what
you see in her. Who would have thought that when I brought her through
your door a few years ago that she would grow into such a wonderful
performer! It is in her blood. Thank you for everything you have
done for her!" - Rachel Morling
are few acting coaches in the world who can bring to the artist
the kind of wisdom, experience and sensitivity that Kate Kennedy
does." Hank McCann - IMDB.com
is amazing. Kate and PeachCraft took Chelsea's acting skills beyond
where we thought they could go and now a number of opportunities
are coming her way." - Susan Meyers
having you as an acting coach and being in class with everyone!
I love my classes here in LA, but there are no actors studios that
have an "ensemble" as close, supportive, comforting, unique,
or fun as Peachcraft. And there is no Kate Kennedy on the West Coast!"
"I just wanted
to thank you for all your extra-ordinary hard work this summer.
You gave the kids a wonderfully positive experience and I know that
my son had a great time and learned a lot. I enjoyed every
performance of the show, the talented kids, and getting to know
the other moms as well as yourselves." - Julia Frankel
"I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful program you have created. Annie, in particular, is delighting in her Peachcraft experience. Every Tuesday, she wakes up excited for the day to begin. This Tuesday, when I picked her up from her voice lesson, she exclaimed, “Mommy, I love my life! I love Peachcraft!” It was music to my ears. By the way, did Annie mention to you that she got the lead in her class play, Cinderella? Just a short little class play, but still, a nice feather in her cap. Thanks again for giving Annie such a fabulous experience."
"Matt Ball (Member of PeachCraft Actors Studio 2005-present) is worth a look by any Casting Directors in search of that rarest of theater commodities, a skilled child actor." - New York Times, - Neil Genzlinger,

"If I can say anything about Kate Kennedy, it's that she is one of the most generous people I know. Her heart is as big as the sky and everyone she helps seems to shine brighter because of it. Without Kate, I wouldn't be able to pursue filmmaking or acting. Without Kate, I wouldn't be the person or artist I am today. Kate Kennedy has given me the world and I owe her so much. My hope is that she stays wonderful!"
