In addition to offering small group classes, Luna Stage is thrilled to offer one-on-one coaching. Whether it’s nailing the audition, or more long-term work on technique and material, we offer both one-time and continuing options for expanding actors’ capabilities and deepening their relationship to their work. Coaching is available in all areas of acting-- for actors working on theatre, film or television roles, as well as for those seeking monologue, audition, or scene study classwork prep, or voice and speech work.
Coaching for both youth and adults is available via Zoom and in person on a sliding scale—please contact us here for more information and to book a session.
