I would highly recommend The Laura Mac Method to anyone starting out in their career or even those who are experienced but might need a refresher on how to be your best self during auditions.

The Laura Mac Method taught me what to work on and how to work on it. I gained confidence in my audition prep that took away the guesswork and allowed me to book multiple roles.

Most frequent questions and answers

Becoming an actor is a long term game and “overnight success” is an illusion. When you commit to working the Method with a team for 3+ months, you will foster the motivation you need to succeed while boosting your confidence through connection and support. The Academy is for actors who are ready to commit to a new level of success in their careers. We also believe that there are many valuable learning experiences in this industry and encourage you to train with any studio or instructor that you find who you feel you can benefit from.

Upon registration you will submit a self tape and share your preferred meeting time. We will then offer you a position on the team that we feel will be a biggest benefit to you moving forward.

Yes! If the shoe doesn’t fit, try on another one! We strive to build teams that can work and grow well together based on where each individual is on their journey. If you want to switch it up, we will be happy to help you find the right place. There is a maximum number of participants per team, and changes will be made at the discretion of Laura Mac and the Associates. 

You know what’s better than one brain? Two brains! And what’s better than 2? 10! There is power in numbers. Your team will not only keep you accountable, but they will lift you up when things get hard and the best part? You’ll lift them up too! Working with a team will take what you know and expand it to places you didn’t even know you didn’t know.

Got an audition? We’re happy to help you one on one to choreograph and prepare a performance you feel confident delivering. If you’re looking to maximize your growth as an actor, one on one isn’t the best route. There’s only so much we can cover in a hour, so check out the Foundations and the Academy and save one on one for your next audition.

Every 6 months, 2 alumnae will be offered the opportunity to become Associates and begin running their own teams. These alumnae will be fully training on how to facilitate and coach the Laura Mac Method and then join the ranks of our Associates, helping to share the Method, grow your community and earn an income as a valuable working actor.
