Working with me, gives you the experience of both an actor and a director. I see from inside your character and from your audience. I have worked with actors from first-time neophytes to professionals and styles from method to experimental styles of the 60s to improv and back to Shakespeare. I taught theatre in High School and College as well as community classes for children. I have acted and directed for many years.

Fantastic! Scott really can customize exercises and your training to your goals. I was worried I would be doing opera or classical focused training, but he is helping me towards the pop and modern sound I am going for! Recommend 10/10 times!

Scott Mulligan is the best acting coach I could hope for. He took a very special interest in me and my talent. And he put his own reputation on the line in order to recommend me to a talent agency, and I got it! I am now working as a professional actor and I couldn’t have done it without Scott Mulligan.

I really love taken lessons with Scott! learnt a lot already and we only just got started!

Online Acting Teacher

As an actress of 19 years, I love teaching my students the art of telling a story. I started my training in the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts program, following on to Interlochen Arts Academy and eventually private training in Los Angeles. I have credits in regional theater, television (Netflix's Dear White People, The CW's Worst Birthday Ever, TruTV's Adam Ruins Everything), countless national commercials, and more. Together, we will explore several different methods including Meisner, Stanislavsky, Boleslavsky, imagining, and more, to create your own unique method. I can't wait to start this journey with you. In your first few lessons, we'll assess your goals, learn how to break down a script, and choose an acting method to start with. As we go on, we will build a repetoire of monologues and scenes for you to use, develop career trajectory targets, and develop your own personal approach to the art of storytelling. I can't wait to start this journey with you!

I have taught and directed for 30 years in NY and DC. From lesson 1, students engage with a dynamic approach to acting through Meisner-based improv. During the 1st 12 weeks, we go from basic truthful acting to dynamic scene work, followed by 12 weeks of in-depth scene study, then extensive character training and in-depth film and audition technique. My students are successful in film, theater, commercials and TV in DC, NY and LA.

Robert is super easy to talk to and he has great ideas. He leads with passion, curiosity and understanding and opened new worlds to me. Although I was a terrible student, Robert made me realize how much potential I have and now I'm exploring many new things on my own. I'm very tankful!

"Simply AMAZING! Keith offers a comforting and open environment in which a performer can grow. I came to Keith in need of help for my college auditions, and in that short period of time was able to grow as a performer and get a taste of the professional world of theatre. Not only did he aid me in my audition pieces, he also gave me advice and insight of what it's like to go to school for the performing arts. I cannot thank Keith enough. With his help, I was accepted into New York University Tisch School of the Arts and AMDA. Great coach with life long skills, with Keith you will only grow."
