The Secret Theatre
We have been called 'one of the best 50 theatres in NYC' by Time Out. We are the only theatre in Queens offering weekly drama classes for young actors. Playbill compared our facility to BAM, The St Georges Theatre [S.I.] and the Lehman Center for the Arts.
I love to teach. Originally from Britain and from a blue collar family I really needed my teachers to help me find my life in the arts. Its an absolute pleasure to be able to help others find their 'voice'.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
Firstly I would want to discover how much or how little experience a student has.
Second, I would like to know what the student was hoping to achieve; i.e. is the student auditioning for a performing arts high school or college? Wants to be in TV?
Then I would either customize lessons to suit or make a recommendation about classes I am already teaching.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have over 20 years experience as an acting teacher, actor and producer. I own my own successful theatre in LIC. I am also a successful record producer and Award winning songwriter.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
There is no 'standard' price but lessons start at $50 per hour though typically I prefer to teach a 75min or 90min lesson. Sometime lessons might be as part of a group or individual and therefore its important to understand the students needs before committing to a final price.
