Summer 2022

We are thrilled to now be based in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. This has long been a dream of my partner, Marci, and I, and we look forward to working with the many local arts & educational organizations in the coming years. But don't worry, we still tour far and wide, and with our award-winning online programming experience, we are more accessible than ever!

Thanks to valued partnerships with Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration, Connected North, MassHousing, and other awesome collaborators, we spent the last school year delivering virtual and in-person sessions across North America, including programs about Shakespeare, Ben Franklin, Public Speaking, Jedi Training, Stage Combat, Storytelling with J.T., Storyboarding with Marisa, and Physical Comedy with Marci, among others. Our newest program, "Reading Shakespeare", which complements our longest-running session, "Will's World: All About The Bard,"  focuses on a specific Shakespearean play your group is reading, and has received great reviews. 

In live theater this season, I directed "Treasure Island" at University of MA - Lowell, and have been choreographing stage combat for multiple high schools, as well as 12th Night at Misfit Artists, The Lady Hamlet at Provincetown Theater, and Pippin at Reagle Music theater. 

My work as Descriptive Narrator for PBS has continues with new episodes of Pinkalicious!.

A new and exciting venture has been the opportunity to teach Tai Chi online for people around the world thru the European non-profit, MIRTHY. I am excited to utilize my teaching certifications in tai chi and qigong, with regular programming on the MIRTHY platform.

Pre recorded or live, interactive, customizable versions of our all programs  are available remotely or in-person (with COVID precautions), and are adaptable for schools, libraries, adult learners, theaters, and historical groups.

And through a partnership with the Diamond Family Circus, we can bring live circus and movement arts programming and consultation for all ages and abilities to your site virtually or in-person as well!


If you are interested in booking me or our other teaching artists, please drop my amazing Company Manager, Marci Diamond, a line at TheActorsCompany1@gmail.com.

Mask up, stay safe, and hope to see you soon!

Please see list of solo shows, of various literary/historical characters, which are great for schools, libraries, historical societies, retirement communities and more. Check out our offerings here or drop us a line to discuss details.

Acting classes, individual or group, all ages.(This includes helping with character work for roles you may already be cast in, with due deference to your director).

Public Speaking lessons, great if you have a fear of public speaking but have that big speech to give.

Accent work, for when you are cast in a show that requires a dialect.

Audition preparation, both for being ready for any audition and for coaching on a specific audition, including finding the right audition piece. Audition emergencies are my specialty!

Stage combat choreography and training for individuals, and for plays and musicals.

Voice over coaching, all styles, corporate, cartoon, etc.

Keynote speeches, that will liven up any event.

In a more spiritual theme, I am an Ordained Minister, happy to perform wedding ceremonies, or coach someone who is going to be doing a ceremony. And  I also offer sermon coaching, any denomination, to make you more dynamic in the pulpit.

All sessions can be done in person, or via online platforms.

Please contact us for any of the above, and spread the word - thanks!
