meant for jrp atlanta, not agoura hills,sorry for mistake – My husband and I signed up with Jrp Atlanta three years ago. After paying six thousand six hundred for acting lessons my son and daughter had only taken two lessons. Along came an audition for I pop in new york city. Of course after they chose my kids, they wanted to go. We spent another several thousand dollars to go. My two kids were picked up by a manager and we have sinced moved to California. We were assured that the unused portion of their acting lessons could be transfered to california. Turns out they lied and sucked up our hard earned six thousand six hundred dollars. The John Robert powers in Costa Mesa tried to get the money we paid transfered out here so the instructers could get paid here. When they called, John Robert Powers in Georgia said they wont send the money, in essence they stole our money and have no remorse. The only thing I can do is tell you of our experience. Make sure you get things in writing they tell you. We all live and learn, hopefully this will spare you the grief and loss of my husbands hard earned money who only wanted to do something nice for his kids. I had to put one star to get this published. They dont even deserve it.
JRP is a scam! – I have been going to the JRP in Augora Hills for 3 months, and all the students there agree that it is all just a big scam. In the beginning they try to make it seem as though your child is going to be the next big star and that an agent will book them right away if your child only takes their classes. THIS IS NOT TRUE! DO NOT FALL FOR IT. They do not book auditions with talent agents very often, and when they do book auditions with these so-called talent agents, we never find out which child got the agent. JRP is not a school, but a business made up of conartists. They will do anything possible to get money out of you, and it seems as though every few weeks there is a new big expense. They are not honest about what they are selling to you, they just go around the subject while they reel you in and convince you that what you're paying for is actually priceless, and then they tell you they're selling it to you for only 5 grand. And that's an approximation. The price for everything varies by a lot. For this last IPOP convention they had, they never wanted to state even an approximation of the price for it until the day of the "audition" (every child passes all of the auditions they hold, so long as the parents are willing to pay the money). Then that day they finally let you know that it's about $4,000 for each child, and about $2,000-3,000 for each parent, and that a parent MUST accompany each child. Rip off? if you invest a little time doing some online research, you will find several different websites with more than plenty of dissatisfied customers who have a lot to say about this "business".
