The Rehearsal Room

(97 Reviews)

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 really the most amazing supportive, encouraging and practical acting class I've ever been to. Richard creates a safe & supportive space for each person to try out his techniques. He has over 20 years experience directing Australian TV shows, so you are experiencing direction from a professional director. At the end of each term, a professional director comes to class to direct our final night, which is so helpful experiencing various directors to test out our process. I highly recommend The Rehearsal Room to any actor or performer. Fantastic place to learn.

This was such a great class - I have been coming back to study with Rich for about three years now, because his classes are so fantastic. I use the tools which he teaches in my professional acting work every time I'm in front of the camera (or behind it) Highly recommended
