The Audition Workshops have been paying off with actors leaving lasting impressions on Casting Directors who are extremely impressed with the Rehearsal Room results. Cameron Harris on a number of occasions enthusiastically commented to the whole group about the quality of their work. Tom McSweeney was also very impressed. Actors are being more confident and consistent with their choices in their performances by simply telling the story, playing with surprises, and bringing complexity to their characters.

It is important to keep up your skills - a “Working Actor is a Learning Actor”.

"The most valuable aspect of the audition workshop is Richard’s feedback,” DAVE KENYON said. “He talks in terms and concepts that are measurable and really make sense. I learnt a lot." Dave has since joined the Advanced Evening Workshop and is enjoying exploring The Rehearsal Room performance process in more detail.
ELKE OSADNIK is another actor who has really enjoyed the classes and has now enrolled in Round Four Audition Workshop - "Put me down for this audition workshop also. I'm LOVING them!!!

There Are Only 3 Stories!!
Can this be TRUE?? The answer is it can be true and its no big deal. There are only three stories. The Rehearsal Room continually explores methods of simplifying the actors process to increase the chance of being able to quickly get ‘on song’ with a scene. Along the way the theory that there are only three possible stories has been extensively tested. And at this point the answer appears to be that - in terms of working out what is happening in a scene - this theory is very efficient.

“Publishing the discoveries we make has always been part of The Rehearsal Room philosophy,” said Richard Sarell. The other day it was pointed out that an old article on the website was out of date with current Rehearsal Room thinking. It has now been up-dated. 'The Story in a Conversation' first published in June 2005 has been revised to include all the more recent discoveries. You can find out for yourself. Why don’t you test this theory out? If you come up with a different answer The Rehearsal Room would really like to know what you have discovered.

The standard of performances is growing term by term at The Rehearsal Room and the MASTER CLASS evenings are producing some exciting outcomes. A growing number of actors who value The Rehearsal Room process as a practical tool are working their way up the professional ladder. PAUL COUSING, after playing the lead in the independent theatre production of ‘Black Rock’ now has taken another step forward with the lead in an independent movie. While Kristen Sargent, having just completed shooting the fully funded ‘Prey’ has auditioned for two more films. Casting directors are commenting that she is ‘nailing’ auditions. Doing well in auditions doesn’t mean you get the part but it does mean that you get asked back next time.
