Every year, we address several aspects of the Bioeconomy, including biofuel, biotechnology, and green chemistry. The impact of biofuels on greenhouse gases is subject to debate.

Welcome to Aquila Morong Studio


AQUILA MORONG STUDIO is excited to announce it is now welcoming demo reels and/or taped monologues for admission to all classes, in lieu of in person auditions going forward. All applicants will be contacted promptly after the faculty reviews your materials.

"We are actors who have been trained by legendary teachers-Stella Adler and Bill Esper. We utilized our invaluable training to begin our careers as teachers, then as casting directors, and now with our own studio as a permanent home, we have returned to teaching again to pass along our tools and knowledge to you. As casting directors, we have literally seen hundreds of thousands of actors' work over the course of our careers that have spanned three decades. Over that time, we have pinpointed the mistakes and triumphs that make a successful actor. We incorporate ALL of our experience in the training we offer to make you achieve EXCELLENCE! We work to shape our actors into exemplary artists, while giving them the tools they can use in real world situations, whether it be an audition room or on-set. Studying with Aquila Morong Studio is not just an eye-opening and enlightening experience, but an experience that provides you with tools you can use to realize your dreams. It's not about tricks- It's about CRAFT."
-Deborah Aquila & Donna Morong

"We train the actor to develop emotional truth through specific character choices which then enables the freedom necessary to be fully present and to take risks. Through the imagination and with thorough exploration of characterization that begins and ends with the text at hand, we provide the actor the tools to explore the experience of the character, in a deeper, specific and detailed way. We do not exploit our students’ own experience or emotional history. We believe that is a dangerous approach to the craft. The goal is to nurture the actor. To support the actors’ ability to find the character through research and to help create a character that is in service to the author and the script.” - Deborah Aquila and Donna Morong
