Students share their experience

"I absolutely loved taking The Fundamentals of Acting with Michael Booth at The Sydney Actors Playhouse.

It brought me a huge sense of fun and presence in my acting. I was excited for every single class and felt free to be myself, experiment and play.

It was a joy and has inspired me to continue learning more within this technique."

"I just wanted to say how grateful I am to be part of such a lovely experience. 

This course was perfect for me. 

With Mikes easy manner, 

incredible depth of knowledge

and beaming passion for the craft, 

I felt like I was learning a lot more

than just how to act. 

Philosophy, perspective, observation

and a brand new appreciation 

of the wonder that is the human condition.

Things like...

That's like putting a hat on a hat

The thing that hinders the task 

becomes the task.

Pick up the spilt glass of water.

Don't tell.me... show me.

& never work for Stanley Kubrik.

and a million more."

"The last 6 weeks have been a fantastic adventure, I really had no idea what to expect but have come away with a new appreciation for the actor's craft! Thank you for creating such a safe environment for us to be ourselves, no matter what stage of the journey we were on. And to my fellow actors, thanks for the learnings, laughs and playing along - such a fine group of funstars!"

- Sally Patterson

"I can only say that this course exceeded my expectations! Yes, “fun” is the operative word….

As a complete novice to acting, I will forever cast a newly-acquired critical eye over my future film/theatre experiences. Being in (and true to) the moment and being reminded of the importance of listening skills are two great take away themes for me.

Thanks Mike for running such a fabulous course that created the environment for us all to prosper and feel safe in taking risks."

"As a beginner actor, I didn’t know what to expect from an acting class. I’ve had little experience, so I wasn’t personally self-assured going into it; but from day one, I felt comfortable and confident in putting myself out there through Mikes guidance. I feel as though I have learned and progressed quickly through his teachings, which have given me an in depth understanding of what it truly means to be an actor. Mike sees potential in all his students and is very attentive to everyone, no matter what their experience level is. I was always interested in acting, but by taking this class I have revealed to myself a love for acting that I didn’t know I had. My only regret is that class isn’t every night! Thank you so much for everything and showing me what a joy it is to act."

"I have just completed the course "Fundamentals of Acting" with Mike Booth. I just would like to say, that I initially joined this course just to do something different, find some friends, explore a new craft. I did find all of that, but I never expected the level of quality of the contents and method of teaching that I found. I would like to say to all of you out there, if you are looking for an acting course, please, don't look any further. Mike is a tremendous teacher. He is clever, understanding, nonjudgmental, funny and able to create a comfortable environment for everyone. He was able to make me see the beauty of acting which I never even thought of. I guess, it's one of those magic [things] that happens when you are lucky enough to be taught by someone who is so passionate about what they do. Thank you for sharing your knowledge."
