As 1 Akins Productions’ grand opening festivities feature a panel of movie industry professionals and a full itinerary for aspiring actors and theatre lovers


Phylcity and  Gabriel Silva (Hollywood Actor)

HOUSTON, March 22, 2018 – Houston-based production company, As 1 Akins, opens its doors to the public during the month of March, which also commemorates the celebration of National Theatre in Schools Month as well as World and National Theatre Day, which is held annually on March 27. Both recognitions are commemorated with national and international theatre events organized to mark the occasions and reinforce the importance of theatre arts to entertain, heal and enrich lives.

Deloris Akins, owner of As 1 Akins Productions, will host the company’s open house and ribbon cutting, along with the Lake Houston Chamber of Commerce, at their new studio space. The festivities kick off on Saturday, March 24th with the open house from 1-4 pm. Special guests include child actor Gabriel Silva who has appeared in Hollywood films including “Live by Night” co-starring Ben Affleck and the upcoming movie “Godzilla” co-starring Academy Award nominees Vera Farmiga and Sally Hawkins. Enjoy complimentary refreshments, a live scene from the company’s upcoming stage play “Wrath Of A Broken Man,” industry talks with professional actors, giveaways, and information about upcoming training for children and adults. The following Monday, March 26th marks the official Lake Houston Chamber of Commerce Ribbon Cutting from Noon-1 pm.

Birthed out of a vision to realize Akins’ own acting aspirations, her production company offers acting classes and stage productions tailored for all ages from aspiring actors looking to develop and hone their skills to individuals seeking to develop confidence through creative expression.

“When I started seeking acting jobs, I really had no clue on how to get started. So I thought to myself, why not write and put myself on stage, and I did,” Akins shared. “I always wrote plays as a child but never thought I could make a business out of it. I really want to help others’ dreams come true who are in the same situation I was in years ago.”

The family-owned and operated acting and production studio – run by Akins and her husband and children – offers year-round introductory acting training, including Auditioning Classes, Introduction to Method Acting, Improvisation, Monologues, Scene Study and Technique Classes, and Commercial Acting. After taking Akins’ classes, her students have gone on to appear in films and TV roles.


Since turning her passion to a profession in 2012, Akins has directed and produced five stage plays and in 2016 hosted “So You Want To Be An Actor,” an acting workshop featuring panelists, Charnele Brown (Kim from A Different World) and Nakia Dillard (founder of Aikan Performing Arts) who has appeared in the movie, Split and the TV series, The Wire.

The New York native aims to provide the Houston community with positive performances through plays and acting courses and to provide a stepping stone for individuals looking to get into the acting industry or boost their communication skills, power and presence.


“Our mission is to bring great entertainment and acting classes to Houston and surrounding areas,” said Akins. “We want to help youth and adults in the community grow their talent and get a head start on making their dreams come true; whether their dream is acting professionally or for fun, or to learn presentation skills and boost confidence, As 1 Akins has something for everyone. We would love to connect with the community at our grand opening events”

The new studio space where both events will take place is located at 1525 Lakeville Drive, Suite #102, Kingwood, TX 77339. For more information, visit RSVP to attend via
