Learn an approach to acting that is so powerful and so practical that it will get you to a high professional standard FAST. Drive your performance to exciting levels with techniques that remove the mysticism from the acting process. Be empowered by techniques that give you total control to deliver outstanding performances. Three teachers will push you to reach new levels.
Actors must be able to deliver powerfully engaging performances where the potent emotions are directly connected to the reality of the circumstances. Powerful and appropriate emotional levels are the key to being real.
No other acting process explains so clearly and so concisely the key elements of performance skill. That's why it can be learnt quickly and produce results at a high professional standard. The focus will be intense because of the small group size (maximum 12).
The most important skill an actor needs is to stand out from the crowd. That means being able to understand a director's needs but also importantly to be able to translate those requests into a performance. These techniques equip the actor to do what few actors can achieve consistently.
You will learn to assess your progress yourself. That puts you in charge of your learning and your career. You will be able to identify issues and find solutions. You will no longer have to rely on someone else's point of view. You will have the skills to trust your own judgements.
Learn the skills of playing a lead role. Every actor in the course will play a lead in a play. Many courses have too many students to make this practical. Actors can attend a 3-year degree course and never play a lead. This course is different in many ways.
You will have a clear understanding of how the industry works and how to position yourself in it. You will practice techniques that are so logical and so practical that the mumbo-jumbo of many of the acting myths will no longer befuddle your mind. You will be able to cope with difficult roles and be able to devise ways of preparing and performing the most challenging character's.
I have observed leading teacher directors in the US and UK and Richard shares with them that facility to guide actors through the guff to the heart of the scene.

Richard is very excited about this course. It is the culmination of thirty plus years of intense development. The techniques that have been developed at The Rehearsal Room have now reached a critical mass where they are incredibly powerful, totally logical and produce wondrous performances fast. Actors make impressive progress. What is more they can see the clear development of their skills and they love the way the teaching focuses on resolving problems and clarifying their goals.
He is also very proud that two Rehearsal Room actors are so skilled at these processes that they are now also excellent teachers.
KYAHL ANDERSON came to The Rehearsal Room in 2011 dissatisfied with the acting processes he had explored to this point. From the beginning he was a standout student quickly acquiring a strong working knowledge and practical understanding of this process. In a very short time he began to contribute to the development of the concepts. Kyahl's directing skills have also blossomed and he is now regularly hired professionally as a director. He has directed for the theatre, the opera and is also now a winner of a 'Best Director' award for the short film 'Degree of Separation'. Kyahl is a skilled and natural teacher.
GLENN QUINN came to The Rehearsal Room in 2005 when he was in the ensemble of Mama Mia at Her Majesty's in Melbourne. After a 3-year degree course Glenn still had many confusions about his craft. He found the logic of The Rehearsal Room process really suited him and quickly became empowered by it. With this toolbox his career continued to develop to the point where he played the lead role of Tommy De Vitas in Jersey Boys 300 times. Everyone, from Broadway Producers to Australian audiences, who saw Glenn in that role agreed he was outstanding. The skills that made him a great actor also make him a charismatic and inspiring teacher.
Become great FAST. Learn techniques that have the ability to lift your performance skills quickly to the highest of professional levels. No other process has this clarity and power.
The world is a great place when you get taught by someone who wants you to succeed not just as an actor, but in life. Always so grateful to know you Richard.
