    As a director Milton makes performances better by collaborating with and encouraging actors. He weds both the actors’ and his own insight. A pleasure to work with.

  • Jenna Lea Scott

    Milton, as a director/writer, is open to collaboration and works with the actor’s strengths to guide the performance. I appreciate his willingness to listen as well as give direction especially when working on a play he wrote. Not all director/writers can do that equally.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

This depends on the level of the student's experience.  If they are new to performing, we will do a lot of fun, theater games.  They first goal is to help the student become comfortable.  If it is a more advanced student the work may include working on audition material.
