I am a working actor and love the craft of acting. Everything about it. My respect and enthusiasm will be the hallmarks of my lessons. I find acting a deeply gratifying look at authentic behavior of ourselves and the world around us. I teach thru a basic Meisner approach with actual on-set and on-stage experience, all the tips of the trade, for working and booking. Coaching is also available.

One of the most fulfilling experiences is helping students make discoveries. I teach acting to help students see a line in a brand new way or make a choice they never thought possible. I see teaching as a collaboration rather than a lecture. A lesson with me will be fun, informative, and full of creative exploration.

I hold a BA in Theatre with Concentrations in Musical Theatre and Acting from Temple University and have studied Shakespeare at the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey and Saratoga Shakespeare Company. I specialize in teaching Shakespearean verse and helping students put together a compelling audition package. Whether you are a high school student preparing to audition for college theatre programs, a working adult looking to get into community theatre, or a professional actor looking to freshen up an old monologue, I look forward to making discoveries with you!

When I went to college at Temple University, I discovered a whole world of Shakespeare and straight plays. During college, I developed a vocal disorder that made singing difficult. Through Sh

My goal is to share my knowledge as a classically trained actor and film director. I will create lesson plans catered to each individual that captures the complex and wonderful world of theatrical and on-camera performance. Students will be exposed to various acting methods created by Uta Hagen, Stanislavsky, Michael Chekhov, and others. Students will participate in multiple exercises and performances that will build and strengthen their bodies, voice, mind, and heart.

Shakespeare, from the page to the stage; interpretations from the actor's Point of View as well as staging it from the director's view.

We will talk about the text, what it means, how it can be interpreted, ways to explore it, why it has stood the test of time.

Please Note: This course is designed to be for teens and adults, 16 and up.

John is fantastic to work with! He gets you to ask the right questions to get to the heart of a scene and of your character. He is incredibly intuitive and drawing from his experience as an actor and a director he creates a collaborative atmosphere that helps your creativity flourish!
Becca
John is such a great coach and teacher! He coached me for my upcoming play. John created such a safe environment, asked so many thought provoking questions, challenged me, provided innovative ideas, and gave me great insight into my character development. He is extremely professional, always very prepared for our sessions, and gives very helpful feedback. He always goes above and beyond. It is very evident that he is so passionate about our work and about helping me grow. I always feel so comfortable and encouraged in our coachings. I would absolutely recommend John as an acting coach and teacher!

John recently helped me with a zoom audition. He guided me to choices that were more nuanced and more honest. I got a callback! The director loved the audition and I loved working with John. Very wise and patient.

"I was always afraid I couldn't learn Shakespeare, but Nicholas explained the intent on the word, the intent on the line. Soon, I was so caught up in the meaning of the lines and the story I was telling in that moment that I was able to engage in the role, smoothly, without worrying that I was performing Shakespeare. He broke it down so I could understand it, and then feel confident doing it. Highly recommend!"

"Not only is Kelsey proficient and very knowledgeable, she also has so much enthusiasm and an obvious love for teaching. She put me at ease right away and from the very beginning showed such excitement to be working with me. She comes prepared, takes the session very seriously, but also has fun with it so time flies by. I'm honored to be her student and pupil, and look forward to many more acting lessons, as she imparts her wealth of knowledge of Shakespeare and acting technique."

"I have learned so much with Nicholas. I feel like I'm always walking out of our lessons with my mind blown! We've been working on Shakespearean acting which I am now thoroughly enjoying. I now have a deeper understanding and appreciation for the lines than which I have learned in school. I would highly recommend his coachings to any actor!"
