Valerie Kingston Acting Coach
Private Coaching For:

Cold Reading Auditions for Television, Film & Theater

Career Counseling and More!

Are you wondering why you can't get that call back?  Are you stuck with the same old monologues?  Do you have a teenager getting ready to audition for high school or college and need help selecting the right material? 

For 16 years, I taught  ActingTechnique and Scene Study classes  (Uta Hagen and Stanislavski) as well as cold reading and commercial classes at TVI Actors Studio in New York City. I have also been coaching privately for the past 14 years helping actors from ages 12 to 72 with their audition material. 

I have been a working actor for over 24 years.  I've been on daytime soaps such as One Life To Live, Guiding Light and All My Children ( with Susan Lucci) , as well as the night time drama Law and Order ( with Chris Noth and George Dzundza), the movie Aspen Extreme ( with Peter Berg) , as well as theater at the Baltimore Center Stage and off-broadway in New York City (Playwrights' Horizons' Lab Theater,The Ensemble Studio Theater, The Harold Clurman Theater).  I've done dozens of print jobs, industrials and voice overs and last year shot my 165th commercial (Jennie Craig national commercial) with Queen Latifah!
