"I owe so much of the success that I've had at auditions over the past few years to Audra.  She is an inspired and brilliant actress and teacher.  She truly invokes the most creative and spot on choices to make your audition both fascinating and specific.  She brings out the best in an actor’s work. She is my "go-to" coach.  She coached me on the job that I am currently working and I couldn't have booked it with out her!!!!"

"I worked with Audra in order to prepare for my college auditions-  she made a profound impact on my acting.  The first day we met, I needed an additional monologue and she brought with her a bunch of monologues for me to choose from!  She also helped me film all of my college prescreens, and made my videos look professional and clean. Aside from being an amazing coach, she is one of the kindest and most genuine people I have ever met.  She managed to push and challenge me while always staying cheerful and uplifting.  Audra truly cares and works incredibly hard to make you shine.  I highly recommend her to anyone looking to improve their acting skills and prep for auditions!"

"Audra worked privately with my son to prepare for regional and Broadway national tour auditions.  We highly recommend Audra.  She leveraged her training from Carnegie Mellon University and years as an actress on camera and stage to their sessions. She communicated in a way he understood and could apply the suggestions.  They worked on character motivation, speed, diction, and all elements necessary to nail his auditions/roles.  They often worked on techniques to get over audition jitters and other elements of the auditions.  We know he would not have made it as far as he did without her excellent training and guidance."

"Audra was such a tremendous help coaching me on a monologue.  I was preparing for an audition to get representation.  She made me feel comfortable, dived right into the work, and was so thoughtful and smart with her direction.  She creates a wonderful environment to play, and helped me to make discoveries I might not have made otherwise.  I felt so confident and prepared going into my audition.  I ended up getting signed with my agent on the spot!"

"Audra is an incredible coach.  She is so attentive and smart when approaching any work. She pushed me to find nuances that I didn't even know existed within myself and within the piece.  She encouraged me to go where she knew I was capable of going and did it all with so much bright positivity and support.  She is sharp, quick, passionate, brilliant, and knows exactly how to help you get what you want out of your work!"
