We will give you all the tools you need to get to grips with Shakespeare's verse, by tackling speeches and scenes chosen specifically for you.

We will work on:

  • Getting to grips with the language

  • Iambic pentameter, why it's there and how it can help us

  • Strong and weak beats

  • Unlocking difficult text

  • The clues Shakespeare gave us


We are pleased to boast a 100% success rate for drama school entry. We will work with you, get to know you and help you choose appropriate speeches that present you at your best.

  • We will look at your classical speech and really get to grips with the language, meter and learn techniques you will carry through your entire career.

  • We will work on your modern speech and song to make sure you give yourself the best possible opportunity to gain a place on a course that will put you on a path to becoming a working professional.

  • We will also work on your audition technique and give you an honest and realistic understanding of the industry.


Most of us are very well trained in theatre and have had plenty of practice but we are less confident on camera. These one-on-one workshops are an ideal way to get over the nerves of camera work and to learn some good techniques and tips. 

We will work on:

  • Technical terms

  • Shot names

  • Performance levels

  • Tricks and tips

  • We will also shoot some scenes for you to look at and for us to discuss where you can improve.



For the professional actor.

We can give you all the advice you need to kick start your career if you feel like you're stalling a bit. 

Identifying your 'type' is one of the trickiest things an actor has to do. Let us help you do that and show you how to sell it. 

We will look at:

  • Your Type

  • Agents 

  • Headshots

  • Self-Promotion/Branding

  • Utilising Social Media

  • Career Progression


Coaching Testimonials


"STAC has provided me with stellar guidance, both with career mentorship and acting coaching. They have a very no-nonsense approach and are yet utterly empathetic, and always provide a completely fresh perspective. A lot of the time in this industry we are made to feel as if we need to change this and that, or that we don’t quite fit into the right box, but with STAC it’s refreshing to learn to embrace and work with what you’ve got. Go to them if you’re in any way stuck or lost! Thank you to the team at STAC for your endless support and wisdom!"

On Actor Career Development

"Richards experience and knowledge of the industry is extensive and mean he is able to give a useful insight and actionable advice. If you’re feeling a little stuck I would highly recommend getting in touch."



On Drama School Auditions

“Richard assisted and coached me throughout the entire audition process, from suggesting monologues which fitted my casting to helping me reflect after the audition was over. As a director he was open and generous and I felt that my audition pieces were a collaboration between the two of us. With Richard's support I had numerous recall auditions and offers but I also feel I gained experience working with a professional director which has set me in good stead for working in the industry.”



On Drama School Auditions

“Richard worked with me on my audition pieces for drama school and National Youth Theatre and I was amazed by how brilliantly he was able to break them down and help me access the characters. We worked on the rhythm of Shakespeare, which until I worked with Richard I had struggled with, and the techniques he gave me I still use today. He even helped me choose speeches. Thanks to the sessions with Richard I managed to secure a place at a top drama school and also gained entry to the National Youth Theatre and am now working professionally. His sessions are brilliant, fun, eye opening and really do get the best out of you.”
