The Rehearsal Room

88 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).

I really enjoyed the night in lockdown watching the SLAM ! I can not wait for another one, and next time I will defiantly be joining in on the fun. It is such a fun way to play, practice, learn, and network. I learned a lot just watching and hearing other peoples feedback .

What an amazing evening. Not only you have fun, meet great performers but you learn so much. Richard is one of the kindest teacher and still skilfully says in few words what could change your game to go up to another level. Every actors should do an acting slam!
