About us


Applying for drama school is an exciting time - and potentially a nerve-wracking one! With courses vastly oversubscribed it’s easy to underestimate how difficult it can be to get a place and how much work is needed to stand out from the competition.

As a professional acting coach I can guide you through your unique audition journey, from helping you choose pieces that work well for you (from Shakespeare to modern drama) all the way through to a mock audition. We will work on your acting - with an individualised approach - and build your confidence to handle the pressure and enjoy the audition experience.

Together we will make a step by step plan, so that you feel professionally prepared to be the best you can be

Our Drama School Audition Preparation package costs £280 for 6 sessions . Sessions can be done in person (Dundee area) or online via Zoom. We also offer a free 15 minute discovery call to discuss your goals and how best The Acting Lab can support you to maximise your chances of landing that much-wanted drama school place!

So you’d love to develop your acting skills, but don’t want to attend a group class?

Maybe you have a complicated schedule that means times of group classes never work out for you. Maybe you aren’t quite ready to let yourself go in front of others. Maybe you learn better on your own. Or perhaps you’re toying with one of my group classes but just need time to gain confidence first. Whatever the reason, I’ve got the perfect course for you!


At The Acting Lab, I know that group classes aren’t for everyone - so in 2021 I launched my 1:1 Crash Course in Acting, where you’ll benefit from all the same training, but with the added bonus of my undivided attention!

Think of it as your very own drama school.

In this highly focused and exciting coaching course you’ll build impressive skills step by step and have great fun - it takes place over 10 one-hour sessions, which can be arranged weekly or at whatever pace suits you. Sessions can take place in person (Dundee area) or over Zoom. Between sessions, you’ll get homework assignments to keep the momentum going.

You’ll learn a wide range of crucial professional skills and techniques, to help you master acting essentials like breathing, posture, stage/screen presence, energy and voice (volume, pitch, tone, diction etc). We’ll also cover script analysis, line learning, monologue/scene preparation, and improvisation and spontaneity.

On top of all that, you’ll get experience in performance skills, teaching you to engage your audience in ways that are guaranteed to make them sit up and take notice.

As if that’s not enough, as part of the course we work on your growth mindset, ultimately boosting your confidence (which will benefit you not just on stage but in every area of your life)!

PRICING: £450 for a 10-session course.

Demand for this fantastic course is already high, and availability is limited, so book now!
