THEATRICAL CLASSES

"Stacy is doing a wonderful job with the class.  Not only is she an seasoned pro with onset experience, she is a kind and generous instructor who adjusts her approach to fit the unique qualities of each actor in the class. This is not a class that tears down actors but rather an artistic playground that nurtures the creative spirit of each student while respecting the training and experience they bring to the group. I recommend Stacy for a broad range of actors from beginning to working pro looking to supplement their existing classwork or to stay sharp in between bookings."    - Paul B., Actor

"What a wonderful place to take class! I have tried many different teachers and studios over the years and have never come across such a professional and educational way to approach my work. I have taken the Meisner Repetition Class and Theatrical Technique Class both with Jeff Kober and Stacy Edwards. I can't recommend both classes enough!!! Seriously, if you would like to book more work, take these classes! I did and I have." -Joceyln S.

"I had an audition last week and I booked it!!! Stacy Edwards worked me through the scene in last Tuesday night's Advanced Scene Study Class and the following day I applied the techniques to my audition performance. On the first run I received applause from the director and producers after following the technique and Stacy's direction! That in itself was such a great feeling! Then, the director asked me to do it again 180 degrees opposite from the first time, ʺjust for funʺ -- and this is where the technique really paid off -- because I was able to turn on a dime with no preparation and give the director exactly what he wanted to see. I have learned and grown so much as an actor since I started training at KIRA last February." - John V.

"I fervently believe that Stacy Edwards wants every student to succeed, and she clearly makes the emotional and mental investment in helping every student to strive for exactly that. She’s not instructing to serve her ego, she has the student’s best interests in mind, and sees the bigger picture. Her passion for acting, for being in the moment, and for encouraging yourself to just “be” is palpable. Stacy, like all the other instructors at KIRA, are working actors and she (they) bring so much to the table as to what is relevant in the industry today – this is invaluable to the student" -Steve S.

"I took the pilot season preparation class, with Stacy Edwards, and Suzanne Schmidt. Having two coaches observing your work at once is invaluable. You get insight and opinions from different perspectives. They provide feedback specific to your growth.  Can't thank them enough." -M.S.

"Let me start by saying what a fabulous teacher I think you are. Really incredible.  Dedicated, great communicator, vulnerable, tough when needed but gentle and extremely caring.  It's obvious you enjoy what you do - your passion for this work is contagious.  This on top of you being an extraordinary actress." - Cindy C.

"Thank you so much.  Class was great!  One of the best drop-in / workouts I've been to :).  Stacy is awesome -- her feedback, and ideas really help pull out the creativity we all know is in there as actors.  She really has a good eye."  Elecia J.

"I feel very blessed to have found Stacy!  Her empathy, compassion and intuitiveness combined with her real experience as a working actress makes her a true gem as a theatrical acting coach.  She also genuinely cares about her students, and she critiques and supports us like a good mother would! :)  She is someone I can trust wholly and will continue to seek her guidance.  Only after 3 sessions, I already feel a difference in how I experience the cold reading process - I feel like I'm starting to finally get it - and that's exciting!"    - Nami P., Actor

"I love the Theatrical Thursday Class taught by Stacy Edwards because Stacy helps me make good choices for my characters, and she truly brings out an organic read from me. All the teachers are working to see me succeed." -Karli K.

"I can't say enough about the drop in Theatrical and commercial classes on Wed. and Thursday nights. The teachers are all AMAZING i can't believe the difference in my auditions since taking their courses. Love love this place, i recommend it to all my friends! And getting a copy of yourself after every class is invaluable!" - Courtney M.
