Success Story: "I went to an audition yesterday, which to my surprise was just one big improv session where the casting agent
would read a case scenario then point to an actor randomly and they'd have to improv their side of the story. Well had it not
been for the tutelage of the great Peter Berkrot I would have looked like a bumbling fool, but instead I was one of 5, out of 50 guys,
that was booked. If you haven't taken his classes, well then you're missing out on both an incredibly fun time and some valuable
lessons. Thank you Peter!!!" -Rob M. Lavin

"Scratch Beginnings: Me, $25, and the Search for the American Dream"
Adam Shepard, read by Peter Berkrot
"Narrator Peter Berkrot delivers a stellar performance, embodying Shepard during each stage of his captivating journey and delivering an intensely intimate performance that is as subtle as it is unabashed
and raw. Berkrot’s tone is that of a hardworking man who refuses to be broken down by society no matter what life throws at him. It’s compelling and earnest, hilarious at times, while
devastatingly sad at others. Berkrot ably steps into Shepard’s shoes as the author steps into the shoes of the poorest of the poor in America today. A Harper Perennial paperback. (Nov.)",

"Narrator Peter Berkrot chillingly and expertly brings to life Marcus Sedgwick's short, yet intense mystery (Roaring Brook, 2010). Pitch-perfect voicing, suspenseful and satisfying pacing, and spot-on character portrayals..."
(2009) Toby Alone
"Peter Berkrot’s narration is as ingenious as the story itself. His best voice is reserved for Toby’s father, a geeky professor, but he also growls and snarls his way through several evildoers and oppressors."
