Richard Sarell is one of the best teachers of acting. The world is lucky to have him in it and I’m so happy I found The Rehearsal Room. Wish I found it years ago! Time and money well spent!

Listening is the most fundamental element of the acting process. It's active listening that drives all the actors choices and makes a performance real.
This webinar explores the secret of good listening. It will identify the problem areas that you most regularly face and will get you try a brilliant exercise that is a refreshing application of Meisner technique.
Richard Sarell is a Master of his craft! In just 90 minutes he delivered a comprehensive webinar, provided many useful tools and devices to explore, as well as a thought provoking discussion. Really looking forward to the next webinar on the Actor Director relationship.

LEARN TO GENERATE PERFORMANCES THAT ARE CREATIVELY PLAYFUL and CONVINCINGLY REAL
Explore techniques that have been 35 years in development. They bring a new clarity and functionality to acting technique.
Why do 70% of actors make the same mistake in the audition room? That's a lot of actors making a basic mistake.
Perhaps there is a fundamental flaw in acting training that is the cause of such a consistent problem.
Explore techniques that not only effectively plan creative actors choices but also enable you to measure the chances of success.
Over his twenty-five year directing career Richard found that that there were many unusual behaviours that he would have to encourage actors to adopt for their character. One thing became quickly plain. No matter how odd the behaviour was there was always a conscious or unconscious reason driving it. Everything happened for a reason.
Working out how and why unusual behaviours occurred was fascinating. Then learning to translate that knowledge into acting technique was another fascinating challenge. He became very skilled at it.
Actors have to do the same thing. On some occasions they too are confronted by the unusual and have to start from scratch to work out a practical way to apply a new understanding to a performance.
This webinar will also therefore explore learning how to learn.
