Supporting your daughter or son with their passion for acting is not just about buying tickets for the local community centre production, or a big, Youth Theatre musical at the Theatre Royal. Supporting them is about helping them to develop their craft, rather than rely on ‘natural’ talent (whatever that is?). A good way to do this is through their following of the LAMDA curriculum, working in groups or as a solo performer. To succeed here, you need a great coach, with a great rapport with their student and that is what we have found with Eliza Miller. Working with adult and youth theatre can bring the teamwork and supportive environment when things are not going well in rehearsals, but to understand your craft takes a special coach and Eliza is just that – very special. To have a tweenager get up early on a Sunday morning, to go to her lesson (with a smile), is as a rare as a hen’s tooth, but that is what we get, every week. Thank you, Eliza.
