Adult acting classes on The Wirral are run by theatre director, Martin Harris, who initially trained as an actor and has run acting classes for over 20 years. (Rocket Theatre)
Classes are aimed at any adult keen to learn new skills and to develop current acting techniques. Occasionally we develop work for public performance, but this is not the main aim of the classes.
In the past participants have varied from complete beginners and keen amateurs to experienced actors wanting to brush up on their skills. Focus is mainly on theatre acting, but we sometimes do work for camera and radio too.
Terms of classes coincide with school terms and usually begin in January, April and September.
Whether you’re applying for drama school, have a forthcoming audition for theatre, radio, tv or film, would like guidance with a script or wish to improve your acting technique, I can certainly help. I can even guide you through the process of creating your own one person play!
If you work in business I can also offer assistance with your public speaking and presentation skills. As well as actors and a host of other entertainers I have also worked with a range of business professionals including doctors, barristers and even a bomb blast expert.
I also teach children individually or in pairs and can prepare them for LAMDA examinations.
I’m Martin Harris. I’m the audition coach. You can find out more about me on The Coach page.
Most sessions are on a one-to-one basis. These are private lessons. However, if you’d like to work with an associate or friend then I’m happy to see two of you at once – at no extra cost. Sessions are very flexible and I can generally see you during the day, in the evening or at weekends. As I also work as an actor and director my availability depends on my current schedule, so we just need to find a mutually convenient time and day.
I’m based in Wallasey in Merseyside which is very accessible by car and public transport (my home / office is literally next to Wallasey Grove Road train station). I can also conduct lessons via Skype or can travel to you if you prefer.

David Russiano founded ‘Merseyside Actors Centre’ & ‘Merseyside Youth Theatre’ (1996 to 2006). Based in Liverpool city centre, MAC/MYT offered full & part time training courses & activities for children & adults. The organisation attracted the support of Jenny Seagrove, Dame Judi Dench and until his death, the actor Michael Williams.

The SB Acting Studio is dedicated to helping professional actors improve their craft, providing them with a variety of practical, effective, and time-efficient solutions to 21st century acting problems. It is a place where the professional actor can make their best better!
Similar in structure to professional acting classes and coaching sessions in New York and Los Angeles, SB Acting Studio operates like an “actor’s gym” – a haven where the professional actor can focus on acting issues of their own choosing. It is a place where they can continually develop, update, and sharpen their acting skills at their own pace, and convenient to their individual timetable.
Though we are currently unable to offer face-to-face classes due to the corona virus lockdown, SB Acting Studio is still able to offer professional actors one-to-one online sessions through The Actor’s Clinic.
You can choose to sign-up for The Actor’s Clinic for Advanced Training: One-to-One Online Coaching Sessions focused on helping professional actors improve their knowledge and understanding of acting step-by-step through the Immediate Acting Technique.
Alternatively, or in conjunction with The Actor’s Clinic for Advanced Training, actors may also choose to sign up for The Actor’s Clinic for Auditioning: One-to-One Online Coaching designed to assist professional actors with upcoming auditions, showreels, self-tapes, and/or any specific acting issues they encounter on stage or on set.
Rates for all classes and one-to-one coaching sessions are competitively priced and there is a
30% discount for all Equity actors.
