I can help you with script analysis, breaking down beats and emotionally tapping into your character to create a well rounded arc for whomever you're playing. I can help you with dialects, inflection, projection, or camera technique. I can help you prepare for an upcoming audition or work on a role you've been cast in. I'm also happy to do scenework with anyone else if you need some extra eyes on your rehearsal :)

Our first lesson with Mallory was wonderful. We were looking for a music coach for our 11 year old, who has interests in vocals, guitar, and writing pop songs. Mallory has skills in all these areas, and did a fantastic job listening to our son’s goals, dividing the 1st lesson into manageable chunks, and keeping things fun for a tween. And my son was blown away by Mallory’s fluency in pop music!!

Andrea is amazing! She is my first choice anytime I have an audition. You will walk into your audition ready, and focused on the work. Love her!!
Helen
Andrea is one of the finest actors and acting coaches I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. She has this amazing ability to get people from ‘acting’ to ‘being.’ She has elicited some of my most breakthrough acting moments with her incredible presence, razor sharp specificity, and in depth script analysis.
Reece
Andrea is essential in my process: either that be an audition or in preparing a role. Her guidance has been instrumental in helping me develop a strong point of view in my work when I’ve felt lost. Her experience gives her the expert language to discuss what doesn’t work to tell a story while bringing the best out of the actor. She is a gem. I am lucky to have her as coach.

Darren is a great teacher. I enjoyed the class.
Dianne
Darren is an incredible acting Coach. I couldn’t recommend him higher. He goes so above and beyond with his time, his care and investment in you as an actor, his amazing guidance and how to truly delve deep into a character and a scene. Before I started taking with him, I was ok as an actor. Once I started working with him, I started getting callbacks and booking jobs and really started to grow and reach my full potential as an actor and I began to feel very confident about my abilities. If you take lessons with him, you will be so happy you did!!

It was such a pleasure to have my daughter working with Darren. He instilled confidence in her, taught her how to prepare herself to be an actor, and provided her with opportunities to show off her craft. THANK YOU! Darren for your time, help and support of our budding angel!! You are The Best.

Acting is being! Easy to say, but trust me it's very hard to do. The way you are is the way you act. My class is dedicated to helping students understand who you are which is the basic skills required in order to develop the art of being through monologues or scenes from plays or movies. A lot of acting exercises will help develop your acting skills as well as help you find the motivation for every action you take, even breathing.

How to Read & Understand Stage Directions

If you’ve ever been in a play or musical you will be familiar with the term ‘stage directions’. For those who don’t know, stage directions are,  “an instruction in the text of a play, especially one indicating the movement, position, or tone of an actor.” Stage directions can also be instructions for the director, such as the way the stage should be lit or what kind of sound effect could be used.  Stage directions can also tell an actor how to deliver a line— pace of speech, emot …
