Acting Coach

Enhance your audition technique, work on your craft, find a new monologue or perfect a familiar one. We will discuss your agenda and work together to reach your goals.

I am user friendly and very supportive of the actor’s needs and sensitivities.

I just love coaching for auditions with Syd because she approaches the session as if it is a rehearsal, and is completely prepared for you when you arrive. Not only do we have fun, but it is always very focused. I felt when we were working on the audition material as if I had already been cast, and working on a character as if I was in the play because she approached the material with a great director’s eye, and opens me up to a whole new way of thinking, and viewing the material with laser focus. Syd puts you at ease immediately, she is completely open, she works with you and collaborates, but brings her keen sense and intrepretative voice to the process helping the actor to really center and get grounded. Walking out of a session with Syd, I felt completely empowered, prepared and excited about the audition process. She helped me to really fine tune and get into the guts of the text by making firm decisions and crafting the audition as if I was already crafting the role for performance. Simply put, working with Sydnie is dynamic, awesome and a joyful experience. I always leave her sessions feeling bouncy, happy and confident. Always grateful to her!

Now is the time to be working on your middle, high school or college auditions!

  • Do you plan to audition for Theatre or Musical Theatre programs?
  • Do you need help finding great monologues?
  • Do you need a coach to make sure your monologues show you at your best?

I came to Sydnie for help just a few short weeks before my college auditions. Eager to pursue a career/BFA in Musical Theatre, though I had many years of vocal and dance training, it had been a while since I had done any acting. Nervous about whether or not I would be prepared in time, Sydnie helped to polish my skills and give me the confidence I would need to shine in my upcoming auditions. An excellent coach, Sydnie sat down with me and took the time to choose monologues that not only were a perfect fit for my acting style but also exhibited my strength as a performer. Having been behind the casting table and currently a director, she had an insight into what colleges would be looking for, and prepared me for the entire audition process. A loving personality and a genuine desire to see her students excel, with Sydnie’s help I was accepted into all the colleges I had applied to. She was wonderful to work with, and I would recommend her to anyone in need of coaching.
