APTRA Academy
The Actors of APTRA Academy

Whether it's a brush fire, a hostage situation or a swat action, it's the actors who help bring APTRA Academy's stories to life! Real-life actors from film, stage and television! People who know how to instantly turn on tears - explode into anger - be taken down by the cops! Actors who give of their time to come to the Academy in order to help others. Some of those who have participated in past camps have included one of APTRA Academy's biggest fans Conrad Bachmann. He's appeared at APTRA Academy twice. He played a U.S. Senator in 2003 and, a year later, the husband of a hostage victim. These days Conrad can be seen on "General Hospital." Recent Emmy winner Kathryn Joosten, who became well known as Mrs. Landingham on "The West Wing" and can be seen in such shows as "Joan Of Arcadia" and "Desperate Housewives" portrayed a hostage at APTRA Academy 2004. That same year D.W. Miller created the role of a unibomber-type suspect. Actor Jamie Liles played the suspect's wife. In 2003, Nancy Sinclair portrayed a traumatized victim during a massive brush fire. And, in 2002, Star Trek Enterprise's Vaughn Armstrong where no Star Trek actor has gone before -- APTRA Academy!
