Feedback for The Rehearsal Room
There has been an increase in the number of actors building their
skills at The Rehearsal Room in 2005. This has been mainly due
to word of mouth recommendations from those who had already attended
There has also
been a significant growth in the methods used to clarify and
simplify the performance process. At The Rehearsal Room the learning
process is a complementary one with growth on both sides. The
Rehearsal Room continues to have an organic open approach to
new aspects of performance process. (See NEW Directors Notes)
A growing number
of actors who initially struggled with performance process issues
are now achieving professional success. This confirms The Rehearsal
Room point of view that skills can be learnt. It is testimony
to the fact that hard work, application of process, perseverance
and practice all contribute to a successful outcome. Good process
produces good results. (SEE
in the workshop with Veronica Taylor (Home And
Away) Nov. 2005
The four Audition Workshops held in 2005 received enormously
positive feedback from actors and the eight casting directors
who participated. Feedback highlighted the amount of time actors
were able to spend with the casting directors in these workshops
and that the working environment was actually like a real audition.
(Mullinars, Sydney Home and Away) commented
to the actors on the exceptionally high level of preparation
she found in the group. Many other casting directors reflected
Workshops will continue next year with Jan Russ
(Grundy Television Neighbours) being
in the Round One and Tom McSweeney (Maura Fay
Gold Coast) in Round Two. Actors are already enrolling
for this years Audition Workshops.
Poon's DVD sold immediately
Presenters Workshops were a great success in 2005 with
a steady growth in popularity. As a result there is now a Level
Two T.V. Presenters Workshop where presenters actually
make a video for a client. If the client buys the completed
production the presenter gets 30% of their workshop fee refunded
making these the cheapest of all the Rehearsal Room Workshops.
The first DVD received instant approval and the second one has
received very positive responses from the client on completion
of the shoot. A new Level One T.V. Presenters Workshop commences
on Sunday 15th January. More individual projects are scheduled
for early in the New Year.

to all those who made breakthroughs in moving their performance
process forward. It is those individual personal achievements
which are the most significant goals.
is the process of continual development which
defines the working actor. It has nothing to
do with regularity of employment, public recognition or the size
of the pay packet. Working actors are always pushing
personal boundaries to expand their capabilities and
to extend the knowledge of their craft. (The Rehearsal Rooms
definition of the working actor.)
