AKINA EDMONDS LANDS KEY ROLE IN 'HAMILTON'
Why?  Because, in her audition, she delivered.
Akina Edmonds was such a standout choice she was amongst the first to be cast.  
"What's really exciting, and confronting, is that we're asked to bring our own version - truly bring our own version" to the audition she told Vogue magazine.  The version of 'Satisfied' Akina offered nailed it!

"I wanted to look at it like I would for any scene, which is as a conversation," she told Vogue reporter Hannah-Rose Yee. "This is just another conversation."

Understanding 'conversation' is how Akina nailed her audition!

This revolutionary approach to acting - takes you from reading the script, to preparing the audition and the final performance.

If you are an actor who has a problem with nerves or stress this is the course for you?
Nerves are mostly generated by uncertainty.  
There is no longer anything to be nervous about ...
            when you know what you are doing,
                        why you are doing it,
                                    how you will do it

                                               and
                                                      that it will work.

DON'T LEAVE YOUR ACTING CHOICES TO CHANCE!

"

I have completed 14 years of training including 3 years at L.A.M.D.A. in London, 2 years in Stella Adler technique in Los Angeles, and 1 year with Ivanna Chubbuck, plus much more.  But after 12 months online at The Rehearsal Room I am booking great roles in high end projects, through top casting agents.
I understand it. It is simple and it works.

THE REHEARSAL ROOM IS DIFFERENT
Creative, spontaneous, audience captivating performances result from this unique process.

A production of Shelagh Stephenson's "The Memory of Water" wowed audiences in Melbourne in 2017 with a different performance every night. What other acting process can do that?

It is the clarity and precision of this process that delivers such creative freedom for the actors.

Traditional processes are vague, evocative, confusing and teach acting half-truths. This confusion is detrimental to an actors emotional and professional well being.

The Rehearsal Room guarantees all confusion or doubt will be eliminated. It offers a clear and precise, step-by-step process that YOU will understand.

"

I used to be standing in the wings bathed in sweat and visibly shaking.  Now when I'm waiting for my entrance cue all those nerves have gone away.  I am too busy focusing on my preparation routine to think about whether I am nervous or not. Your process has removed all that stress.  So much fun.

WHEN WE WERE WORKING IN A STUDIO THIS WAS HOW ACTORS RESPONDED TO THIS UNIQUE APPROACH TO ACTING PROCESS

A Complete Acting Process

Ann Truong -Romper Stomper, Strike Back, Hard Target 2, Hunters, Schapelle, Neighbours

"Something clicks in every class. It’s an amazing feeling - knowing that you are going to learn something profound but you are yet to have any idea of what that is until it happens. I return each week excited knowing that I am about to experience this." 



What will be covered in this course?

1) Casting Directors want you to be able to change

Actors with university degree courses (like NIDA) are taught to find the perfect performance for a scene.  But in the professional audition room Casting Directors know there isn't one perfect version of a scene.  Casting Directors know there are many options for a scene and the professional actor who can see lots of possibilities is an actor who can take direction.

2) Surprise the Casting Director with your skill

An actor who creates characters that experience real 'moments of surprise' stands out in the audition room and on the set. All the great actors play beautiful moments of surprise. Learn techniques for playing surprises that are ONLY TAUGHT HERE. Moments of surprise are the key to being real in performance.

3) Engage an audience and you will engage a Director

Directors want to hire actors who can engage an audience with the comedy or the drama.  If you can totally engage an audience with your performance, the professionals who want to hire you will instantly recognize your skills.

4) Gain a modern understanding of Stanislavski techniques

This is a no bullshit approach to traditional theories. It cuts through the complexities of other acting processes and explains them in a simple common sense language. You will be empowered by your new understanding of Stanislavski process. This is an acting process that makes sense.

5) Understand story so you can break a scene down quickly

Instead of questioning if you actually understand the story of a scene. Learn how to break down story effortlessly every time.

6) Remove confusions and clearly measure your success

Instead of walking out of an audition feeling flat and confused. Learn how to make every audition count. Acquire skills that enable you to measure your success.


THIS IS FOR YOU IF...

  • You are looking for a place to start building professional acting techniques
  • The training you received at a reputable school or university confused
  • When the teaching you have experienced kind of makes sense but isn’t clear about what you have to do
  • A feeling that acting and life can be simpler has you looking for more
  • You sense your acting teacher is just directing you how to do a scene not teaching you how to act

IF YOU DON’T HAVE THESE SKILLS …

  • You will make slow progress trying to find a system that works for you
  • Active realistic listening will probably elude you
  • Flexibility to take direction will be difficult
  • Basic acting skills, like how to end scenes, will be confusing
  • You won’t know how to put yourself in charge of your career
  • An acting process that grows with you and for you won't be a fun part of your life

ABOUT RICHARD...

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.

After watching Richard direct an actor on the ABC series “Embassy”, experienced British actor Brian Marshall commented, “That was pure Stanislavski!!” Other actors began to notice the difference and soon some began asking Richard to teach them the techniques he was using. Those requests generated what has now become The Rehearsal Room acting school in Melbourne. Over thirty-two years those common sense concepts have continued to develop and evolve.

This is a practical, professional approach focused on delivering the performance outcomes that directors and casting directors are looking for. Unlike any other acting process before it, the main focus of this approach is on engaging and entertaining an audience. Actors who can do that are a sought after commodity. Richard loves teaching it. You will love learning it.

I STILL HAVE A QUESTION?

MAKE AN APPOINTMENT FOR A 15 MINUTE ONLINE CHAT WITH RICHARD.  He wants to answer your questions and make sure the course is the right fit for you.

What will be covered in this course?

1) Learn how to build a character effectively

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) Be able to change the character without affecting other content

Character is a separate entity that should be managed in its own right.  You will be able to make huge changes to character if your director or casting director is looking for something different without changing the character's role in the story.

3) Understand how to create a character that audiences like

Casting Directors and Directors know that actors who deliver engaging performances are hard to find. If you can totally engage an audience with your performance, the professionals who want to hire you will instantly recognize your skills.

4) Gain a modern understanding of Stanislavski techniques

This is a no bullshit approach to traditional theories. It cuts through the complexities of other acting processes and explains them in a simple common sense language. You will be empowered by your new understanding of Stanislavski process. This is an acting process that makes sense.

5) Try exercises that develop your expertise

Amazingly effective exercises will both build your skill and expand your understanding.  This is an inventive and productive approach to learning how to create a character.

THIS IS FOR YOU IF...

  • You are looking for a place to start building professional acting techniques
  • You have trained at a reputable school or university but have never been clear about what makes a character real
  • When the teaching you have experienced kind of makes sense but isn’t clear about what you have to do
  • You feel acting and life can be simpler
  • You sense your acting teacher is just directing you how to do a scene not teaching you how to act

IF YOU DON’T HAVE THESE SKILLS …

  • You will make slow progress trying to find a system that works for you
  • Active realistic listening will probably elude you
  • Flexibility to take direction will be difficult
  • You won’t have an acting process that grows with you and for you
