The Rehearsal Room is run by TV Director Richard Sarell who directed television drama for more than 25 years. During that time, he evolved an approach to acting that trains actors in techniques that enable them to compete and survive in the modern world of screen performance.

The techniques are based on simple principles that quickly produce professional results.  They enable the actor to create complex real characters that are perfect for the screen but are also relevant for the stage.  These classes enable actors to make choices that drive the character's interactions in a way that generates a compelling dramatic performance.  The actors skill is to engage an audience because they feel they are watching a real life interaction.  These classes provide the tools to deliver those outcomes.

Richard has been conducting workshops for professional actors in Australia and New Zealand for two decades, working with institutions such as the Australian Film, Television and Radio School (AFTRS), Australian Screen Directors Association (ASDA), National Theatre Drama School, Federation University and the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA).

The Rehearsal Room is such a wonderful acting school. Our teacher has a vast knowledge and was a professional director in Australia for over 30 years. Therefor we get the feedback, inside knowledge and experience of how a professional director works. We learn a very clear, tangible and gain a working skill set to adapt to changes in a very quick and effective way. Richard Sarell is such a supportive, encouraging , fun and wonderful teacher. I LOVE coming to class each week. We are always learning something new and his classes are of great value to me. I highly recommended The Rehearsal Room. For me, these classes are of infinite value.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the Intermediate class at The Rehearsal Room. You can't get a better mentor than Richard Sarell with his vast industry experience and intuitive guidance. The Rehearsal Room offers a well thought out method with a strong emphasis on listening and responding to your scene partner. Every class provides you with new ideas on how to create characters. You see yourself and others grow. If you're serious about honing your skills as a working actor, this is the place to be!
