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).

09 July 2019 • Auditioning for TV Commercials

As a complete novice I learnt much about being behind the camera. The main focus was to have fun and relax. I fully recommend this course to anyone who is in the industry or is wanting to get involved in the industry. It's a great day and you get to meet new people which is always good for networking and getting your name out there. I would like to thank both Richard and Biffy for their insight and patience. Not to mention their experience. Stephen Bray

This was a wonderful workshop. We did lot's of improvisation exercises and got the opportunity to do a few takes until we "got" it. We had lot's of positive feed back and had the opportunity to ask Questions. The atmosphere was positive and supportive. It was great to have Biffy and Richard give us their professional advice and feedback. Lot's of encouragement and good vibes so we could all enjoy the learning. I would highly recommend any future workshops that the Rehearsal Room offers.

I highly recommend workshops at the rehearsal room. Richard has created a simple process and a great opportunity to put it into practice. I learnt an awful lot!
