"Maura really helped me be a more confident actor. She's patient and understanding, which helped me tremendously when I was auditioning for colleges."

"I just wanted to thank you again for helping me. Really, I don't know what I would have done with out you. It was a whirlwhind of craziness, but overall, it went pretty well, and I thank you for being a part of this journy of mine. "






Maura's gift for getting inside the text and being able to say just the right things to the actor helped me nail my audition! Thanks, Maura!

"I recently had a callback for a leading role in a musical. The role I was being considered for is one of my money roles; I have done numerous professional productions of this show. In fact, my paths crossed first with Maura Kelley when we performed together in this same show many years ago. With Maura as an acting coach, I knew we would be able to find something new, fresh and totally different with each scene I was asked to prepare. Maura has a great director's eye, strong comic flair, a great understanding of character, and a stress free approach. It was truly a great coaching...effortless, enjoyable, energizing, and exciting! I truly feel Maura's contributions added to my audition's success."
