Understanding the character's place in the story is the most challenging task an actor faces.  Misjudging this choice means that everything that follows is destined to be ineffective. The Rehearsal Room techniques explain powerful processes that turn this confusion into clear and practical options.

What is more they provide great flexibility to a number of highly professional options that will impress casting directors and directors.  Amazingly simple concepts that deliver very potent results.

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).

Recently I attended the Scene Study workshop in Castlemaine. Although I have Ben acting with an amateur theatre company for 30 years this is the first actual training I have done. It certainly opened my eyes to just how varied a scene can be portrayed by simply following a few simple guidelines that change the mood completely. Being able to ‘have a go’ at a couple of scenes allowed the theory to be put into practice. I’m looking forward to using these steps in future roles. Richard is passionate and brimming over with enthusiasm ..... quite a contagious trait!
