"At The Rehearsal Room ... I was able to quickly overcome my long held misconceptions about what acting is and was ushered into a place of freedom, spontaneity and connection with the scene."  March 2009 

What will be covered in this course?

1) Discover issues you may not have considered that could block your processes

Throughout the history of acting tools that create a character are complicated and vague. These new techniques will enable you to create a believable character quickly. Managing character choices efficiently is the key to being an effective TV actor. You can learn to do it in seconds.

2) Explore innovative and practical ways to find freedom and playfulness

You can learn a scene that could give you the opportunity to try the techniques.

3) Three different teachers will share three different perspectives

A stimulating range of options explored in a short time frame

4) Discover and test the flexibility of The Rehearsal Room's new home

Experience the exciting vibe this new venue has.

5) Explore the unique practicalities of The Rehearsal Room acting process

If you are new to The Rehearsal Room this is a great opportunity to find out about these highly productive techniques and test out how they work for you.

6) The excitement and fun of a highly practical modern approach to acting

It has to be fun.


  • You feel you are organised in your acting but NOT FREE AND PLAYFUL
  • You believe you do play with your performance but WANT TO PLAY MORE
  • You feel you don't understand how playful you are permitted to be
  • You feel acting and life can be simpler and MORE FUN
  • Your understanding of acting is based on the rules of acting rather than how to break them


  • You have much less chance of standing out from the crowd
  • TOTALLY realistic performances will probably elude you
  • Director's notes will inhibit you rather than free you
  • Auditions will be scary rather than fun
  • You won’t know how to put yourself in charge of your impulses
  • You won’t be in charge of your performance.
Glenn, Richard & Kyah at the first $10 Sunday


Richard first discovered the core values of this technique when he was directing drama at the ABC in Melbourne in 1984. In an actor/director workshop run by the marvelous teacher Murray Hutchinson a simple, clear and common sense approach to Constantine Stanislavski’s theories was explained. Richard was captivated by the wonderful practicality of this approach and immediately started exploring it. He also began using it as the foundation of his directing techniques.

These techniques have been taught to hundreds of actors and now two of them (GLENN QUINN and KYAHL ANDERSON) are going to share their insights with you.  Their understanding, skill and ability to share their views will make this a diverse and unique experience. Three different points of view with one voice.
