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).

If you want a practical approach to acting, this is a great place to learn. Richard has been in the industry a long time and no matter what level you are starting at, he will help you become a better actor. Highly recommended.

Still love coming back to The Rehearsal Room. Have learnt so much in Richard's Master Classes over the years and still learning more. Really impressed with the talent and ability of this term's students.


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
