Our mission is to ensure that actors have every opportunity to develop and express their unique talent.

Acting is both a craft and a business. To be successful, actors must be constantly growing, adapting, and expanding skills and knowledge in both areas.  To this end, we are committed to bringing the best advice, tools, and coaching to actors intent on pursuing a professional career.

Beginning can seem chaotic, with more questions and possibilities than clear paths.

Seasoned actors constantly wrestle with the natural ups and downs of their careers.

Whatever stage your career is in, whatever your age, a session of coaching will carve out a moment to focus on craft and business.  This will bring your work to confront clear goals, and a simpler, productive perspective.

How I Got Started…

StageSuccess was inspired by a collaboration between myself and my friend, mentor and acting coach, Adam Hill.

I started studying with Adam in 2000.  As I pursued work in New York, managers, friends and colleagues often encouraged me to teach.  I soon had a coaching practice of my own.

In early 2010, Adam asked me to produce a documentary film centered around his experience as an acting coach for over 100 years (approximately).  His vision was that we would  bring to light the qualities that enabled successful actors at different points of their career to maintain and advance their work.  The film, Stages, is the result.

 

 

 

Working on Stages inspired me to create this website.  My initial goal was to have a place for people to learn about the film, but what has developed is a resource for actors of all ages to find advice, education, and guidance in pursuit of their careers.

Preparation, passion, education, and taking responsibility are the keys to your success as an actor. –Adam Hill
