New Monologue Intensive

back in spring by request.

Look for date:  Sat. 10am-5pm. 

Gerard Flores, Professional Actor:

If you need a great acting coach, Paula Russell is your person.

 

Jonathan Flanders, Professional Actor:

Paula is tremendous, easily the best acting coach and teacher I've ever had.

"This is the first acting class I ever took. Career starter right here folks." Dave Gironda Jr. (now a working actor in L.A.)

 

"Paula is an AMAZING teacher. Within weeks of starting her class I could already see the difference she was making. I cannot recommend her enough!!” Kathleen Brown: actor, director, writer.

 

Jordan Taylor: "Paula Russell is amazing at what she does. The class, the folk involved in class, the supportive environment, and her teaching have all made a significant and great impact on my life and work as an actor. I appreciate her and everything I've learned from her.”

 

Katie Kohler, Actor. My I love Paula rant:   Paula incorporates various methods from several of the greats in her teaching style. I found her class challenging in the best way. I love her “Side-coaching” Technique and Relaxation Exercises. I’ve booked more jobs consistently after practicing her audition techniques; and since taking her class, I’ve signed with an agent and become a company member at Hyde Park Theatre.
