It was all over the radio "Want to be on a Disney show? Get discovered by agencies, call for auditions". Well my then 6 yr old daughter was so excited so we called the number and took her to the "audition". After a 30 minute presentation about what they were not...Read more
Training Session Review
I took my 12 yr old son to a radio call out for IPOP. He was the only kid out of 15 they were sending straight to LA for nationals plus they gave him a 3900 scholarship for training. On last training session the director Denise told me in email I have to pay for regionals and have the 6800 for LA payed by June 14 or they were dropping my son.He doesn't go to LA till Jan 2 so why do I have to pay all of it now? She came to the hotel and was very rude to me and my son then she told my son were dropping you cause your mom can't afford to pay. I was so ticked off that I could have punched her in that "to much plastic surgery" face. They filled my sons head with b.s and watched him crumble like a cookie and didn't care. This company like other john Robert power needs to be shut down for good! Why should I pay all that money now when they won't see my kid again till Jan and why does it cost 6800 for a week in LA not including airfares?? Last yr this company brought in 8.4 million. That came from family's they screwed over. SHAME on these people!
I just want to get this off my chest. JPR Southeast came to Columbia and destroyed my daughter's ambitions.Just because we couldn't come up with money that day, at that min. You should be ashamed for destroying a 13 yr old's dreams. No wonder you have all of these...Read more

I'm sure JRP classes are adequate. Many places offer acting classes. But, they really won't represent anyone who doesn't train with them, thereby giving them lots of money. If they were truly looking to represent fresh talent, they would not make that a caveat. There...Read more

If this is a school why haven't any of the parents who paid heard anything from these people? During the so called showcase there were kids who chose to sing and it was clear these kids did not have any talent (I did not day this to them, that would have been too...Read more
