“Beverley brings an infectious energy that can be felt even through a Zoom meeting. Coming into the class with zero acting experience, Beverley made me feel welcome from the second I joined the virtual class.
This wasn’t a regular zoom meeting though. This. Was. Acting. Class. I had so much fun yelling and laughing at my computer, learning so much about script reading and character development with our amazing class.
Experienced actor or not, I would highly recommend, if you like having a good time.” – Sheldon, student
