At Kimberly Vaughn Performance Studio, actors of all ages and experiences work collaboratively with Kimberly in private, group, and even virtual settings to

• Tame and transform Limiting Editor℠ chatter into Benevolent Editor wisdom which trusts the truth that you are enough!


• Dramatically shift auditions from armored, outwardly motivated (am I making a good impression and do they like me?) to fluid, inwardly motivated storytelling (I eagerly share my humanity and talent with the table)


• Transform from an accommodating, apologetic actor into a commanding force of nature who delivers fierce, formidable, authentic, and unforgettable work every time

At Kimberly Vaughn Performance Studio, you'll acquire the tools you need to succeed in this competitive  theatrical marketplace and beyond!
