Overview

I have been a professional performance coach and actor in Hollywood for the past 11 years. As co owner of K&A Theatricals, I coach and inspire the next generation of performers for stage and screen. My company, K&A Theatricals, is a performance arts company dedicated to educating and inspiring performers of all ages, including adults. Our lessons are offered both in person and via Skype. We provide instruction in all areas from comedy to drama, musical theater and straight stage. We are committed to producing our own cabarets, musicals, and cutting edge dramas as we are performance based. We believe you learn best by doing! In addition to expert coaching, we at times, share the stage with our students and give them the chance to shine with us in Broadway Cabarets and Musicals. With over 10 years of real-life experience as a working actor in Los Angeles and NYC, I have a wealth of knowledge in performing plus, almost more importantly, the business of acting. One wanting to become a professional performer must always keep in mind, acting is a business and an investment! Passion for the arts fills me, and I treasure the opportunity to spread that joy to all searching for solid coaching and instruction. Feel free to contact me at anytime. Just keep singing, just keep singing.

Keith has been great so far! He is very passionate about music and Broadway and his enthusiasm is very motivating and encouraging to my daughter. He teaches the technical aspects of voice but also offers insight about performing, auditioning etc which is helpful for my daughter as she is fairly inexperienced but is hoping to be more involved in high school and local productions.

When you meet Keith it becomes immediately apparent that he loves musical theatre with every bone in his body. His enthusiasm and love for the stage is contagious. Kids just love working with him. I have seen him inspire a group of non-professional actors under the age of 12 to give a top class performance that had the audience on their feet. He is kind, sweet natured and patient with an incredible ability to gently draw out each of his students natural talents. I highly recommend Keith.

Keith takes each of his students to the next level, whether through dramatic or comedic material. His expertise and energy are boundless, and he inspires his students to be the best they can be. He has a degree in theater from American Musical and Dramatic Academy in Los Angeles, and is excited to pass on his wealth of knowledge to his students. He specializes in audition preparation, whether for the stage or the big screen, and has invaluable information about acting as a business. Every student will leave their lessons with Keith invigorated and excited about acting as an art form and a business.
