Richard Sarell has been directing TV drama for over 25 years. His shows have won awards for Best Actress, Best TV Series, and been nominated for an International Emmy.

This experience brings a hands-on practical approach to the acting process he teaches.

The years of auditioning and directing actors have given him a deep insight into no-nonsense paths to creating good performance.

These classes are not about vague and confusing acting theories. They provide a clear and practical way to efficiently and professionally get on with doing the job either in front of the camera or on stage.

Mostly, actors are schooled in a limited amount of useful knowledge and a lot of experience/practice. This means that often you spend a lot of time practicing unproductive techniques. Don't waste your time.

Stanislavski theory is wonderful. But mostly it is taught in a confusing and impractical way. Tertiary acting institutions frequently teach a variety of other methods too, leaving the student to choose what suits them best. The Rehearsal Room specializes in one point of view. It is understood, it is practiced and it works.

Plus there are other classes which focus on Audition Skills, Monologues (a DVD for secondary school students) and TV Presenting. FOR THE FULL LIST ...
