Do you want the advantage in your professional acting auditions?

We can help you create powerful pre-performance routines, develop tangible tools for audition success, quieten the inner critic and deliver moving, persuasive and bold audition performances.

How can we be so confident?

We help actors to achieve audition success every day.

“Mark is a great teacher and the technique is a welcome change to the methods usually taught and practiced in this country. It is good to learn something from the very first stages and progress slowly through the different exercises, putting all the building blocks in place instead of just skimming over things. Mark Westbrook is a valuable resource that I hope to continue learning from for a long time to come.” Brian Ferguson  (Black Watch)

No one can guarantee you success in an audition, but you can be better prepared than everyone else.

"The week long intensive with Mark was an excellent experience. His approach to the craft I found to be concise and extremely practical. The exercises and training are geared towards creating a repeatable process which allows a real connection between your fellow actors and the text whilst being alive to the scene on a moment to moment basis. The work I saw in a short week was captivating and exciting and his respect for the artist and the process was inspiring. I cannot recommend it highly enough."
