I specialize in coaching actors for auditions for film, television, agents, casting directors, theatrical performances or drama schools. Whether you are starting out on your journey as an actor or already have extensive experience, together we will make your audition distinctive. You may need one or two sessions to prepare for a self tape, or to work over an extended time to craft a role for film or theater. I will be there, in your corner, to help you focus your creativity and be successful.

I will help you define the specific situation of your character; and ask you provocative questions to help you journey deeply into the role. We will find the key to tapping into your own life experience to bring the role to life. In addition, I can give you tips on setting up your home studio.

The industry has changed dramatically in the past two years. SELF TAPING your auditions and submitting the digital media to casting directors, agents and film producers has become the new ...

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 resumed voice lessons with Shelley after a 12-year hiatus. I had adopted some bad vocal habits and had lost confidence in myself as a singer.

Shelley has helped me turn all of that around! Because of her professionalism, calm presence, and deep pedagogical knowledge, my range and vocal flexibility have improved immensely. More importantly, Shelley has helped me find my confidence and helped me realize that the vocalist I want to be is within reach.

I would recommend Shelley to anyone who wants to grow as a vocalist!
Marya
Over the years, I've attempted voice lessons a few times and always walked away after a lesson or two. Not this time! Shelley has done the near impossible task of making me feel safe and at ease during our lessons. She is incredibly patient, supportive, warm, and hilarious, too! In addition to helping me with breathing and vocal techniques (which I desperately need, as I'm a beginner!) she also takes the time to nurture my emotional needs as well, as singing has always felt very vulnerable for me. She offers me mantras and writing exercises and is such a great listener. I highly recommend Shelley for any and all students!!
Micah P.
Shelley is a positive, professional, and effective teacher. My lessons with her were outstanding!

Every single lesson was tailored to my voice and my skill level. As I progressed, so did the lessons. Shelley prepared every lesson and conducted them all professionally. Over the course of a couple months, I went from not being able to carry a tune at all to singing comfortably and confidently in different genres.

She was excellent at teaching all aspects of voice including the anatomical structures involved and techniques to use the voice effectively.

She made difficult concepts easy to understand and used simple training tools very effectively. When I struggled in certain areas, she understood what my problem was even if I couldn't explain it well and helped me correct it.

In addition to her effectiveness as a coach, she is just a wonderful person and joy to work with. I plan on taking more lessons from her and I strongly recommend her to anyone!

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!

I am a professional actor currently based in Brooklyn NY. My love of acting started through musical theatre. 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

"Shelley is one of the most dedicated coaches I have ever worked with. My name doesn't get lost amongst her other students. When it's time for class, she not only is ready to go with a lesson plan, but it's abundantly clear she spends her own time outside of class prepping for me with scripts and feedback on any work I sent her during the week. After a year of being her student, I have learned so much technique and range. She is very well educated, knows her craft immensely, and her chemistry and dedication was apparent from the start. I've truly never had a coach as involved and diligent as her."

"There aren’t enough good words to say about acting coach, Dennis Johnson, of Rollicking Productions. Personally, I have had the pleasure of working with Dennis for 5 years and his commitment, knowledge and ability to guide his students to top performance levels in the acting world is unbelievable. With Dennis’ help I was able to win for the State of NH two years in a row for the nationwide Poetry Out Loud competition, land several lead roles in community theater, gain my own teaching experience in his acting workshops, etc., but more importantly I gained a whole new level of confidence that I didn’t have before. Working with Dennis was one of the best decisions I've made and the skills that I learned from him still compliment everything I do today."

How to Become a Stage Actor: What Theater Students Need to Know

I’ve said it once and I will say it again, we are all actors by nature! Anyone can be an actor if given the proper tools and training.  There are ways to become a stronger stage actor and as performers we should always be learning and growing. When speaking to new actors, I often quote Michael Shurtleff, the author of my favorite acting text, “Audition”. He once said, “Use what you know. Don't worry about what you don't know.”  This couldn’t be more true! Acting is reacting and …

Sure, you sometimes hear stories of people who book amazing lead roles in shows after a single audition, but that’s not a realistic view of how it all happens - for most actors, at least.
