Looking for some more personalized training?
Get one-on-one coaching with one of our experienced A.C.T. instructors!

Private coaching sessions are available to students grades 3–12 looking for some individual attention from one of our A.C.T. instructors.

All of our private coaches are talented theater professionals and are matched up with each of our students based on their specific coaching needs.

Our coaches can help you:
  • Prepare for auditions of all kinds, including:
    • Musical theater auditions*
    • College pre-screen video auditions**
  • Select headshots and résumés
  • Choose appropriate audition attire
  • Prepare for applying to undergraduate theater programs
  • Select new audition monologues
  • Interpret direction from auditors
  • Make bold choices based on research and textual analysis
  • Break down scenes and monologues into “beats”
  • Converse with casting directors knowledgably
  • Scan and interpret Shakespearean text
  • Learn basic dialects


*For musical theater audition coaching, please note that coaches will work with students using recorded accompaniment provided by the student or a cappella. If you would like to request a live accompanist in addition to the coach, the additional cost is $40 per session.

**For pre-screen video recording, there is an additional $30 equipment & recording fee per session.
