Speaking and Acting Coach Meryl Shaw


For Actors:
Please note: this year’s Master Audition Intensive is full. However, there are a couple of options still available:

1. Auditing the class.
We are allowing auditors to observe the class. You can observe the Intensive participants work, hear our notes, and attend the showcase and panel discussion with the guest casting directors. You'll meet the other actors in the Intensive, and you'll see some new material. The cost is $50 per class. If you're interested, please email Lauren at laurenenglishis@gmail.com to let her know you're planning to attend so we can send you information about accessing the building, etc.

2. Individual coaching.

Lauren and I are both available for individual coaching. Please check out my services HERE and you can contact Lauren at her email: laurenenglishis@gmail.com to learn about hers. 

Welcome to my website!

Actors and Speakers: If this is your first visit, I invite you to watch my 7-part series of short videos on General Auditions. Although they were originally intended for actors, several of my speaking clients have found them valuable. You can find them on the Audition Tips Videos tab to the left.

Actors and Speakers: Want to learn more? Go to my online scheduler to arrange a complimentary 30-minute phone consultation Here.
