Now, Andrew Moretti, a Media Theatre New School student who started out in its children's acting classes hits the big time in a new TNT television series airing this fall. He's working with Oscar winner Steven Spielberg (Saving Private Ryan, Schindler's List), who produces the drama series, and Sundance Film Festival award winning actor/ writer/ director Ed Burns (The Brothers McMullen).

"This is another fine example of the type of talent we have here at The Media Theatre," said Artistic Director Jesse Cline. "Andrew Moretti exemplifies the best in a young actor. He is focused, he works hard, and we could not be happier for him."
A Delaware County resident, Moretti appeared as The Cowardly Lion this past fall in Media's production of "The Wizard of OZ". He has also been seen in several other youth series productions including "Willy Wonka" and "Sleeping Beauty". His Broadway Series productions at The Media Theatre include "Oklahoma!" and "Annie".
