Rhonda Musak, Acting Coach

As an acting coach, I help actors unlock the magic in their acting.
Rhonda has this amazing ability to communicate acting technique clearly and concisely which helps to remove personal blocks so you can get out of your head and into the groove where magic happens.

I can't believe that it's nearly time to say goodbye to fireflies and sunscreen and hello to long sleeves and boots!

It's been a magical summer on my end with a trip to Chicago in June for my Summer Acting Intensive, a trip to LA in July/August for a solo show audition and a recent trip to gorgeous Fire Island.

As we begin to roll into fall,  I am thrilled to announce that I will be performing my solo show in October at Theaterlab in their beautiful white box!
