INTRODUCING
Our musical theatre coaches

Zach Flis

To say Musical Theatre is Zach's passion is an understatement - he lives and breathes Musical Theatre!

Zach is currently working as Associated MD on both the UK tour of We Will Rock You and Sleepless, due to open in June. He is also a regular vocal coach for the top drama schools in London.

Working with West End casting teams, Zach has witnessed all the 'do' and 'don't' scenarios in an audition. He has a rare insight into the audition process meaning he is the perfect person to get advice from to boost your chance of booking the job. You have to be incredibly talented in the Musical Theatre game, so don't leave anything to chance. Book a session with Zach and improve your craft!

Zach can teach all levels: beginner, intermediate and professional. He can also play seven instruments and bake really good cakes - you can tell we are a fan of his!

Molly Dobbs

Molly Dobbs is an American born actress with a background in Musical Theatre and a Masters Degree in Classical Acting from LAMDA.

Molly trained in Musical Theatre at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland before gaining a Masters in Classical Acting from LAMDA. She has worked all over the United States in some of America's biggest theatre's - notably playing Sophie in Mamma Mia, Katherine in Newsies and Johanna in Sweeney Todd.

Molly has taught at both secondary and university level, everything from monologue and audition preparation to ESTIL style voice lessons. She specialises in masterclasses in acting through song from the perspective of scanning and notating a Shakespeare soliloquy. A great mentor for anyone serious about entering the Musical Theatre World.

Molly will tailor the session to whatever you need. Whether you are starting out, auditioning for drama school or want to improve your voice, Molly can help.

Musical Theatre is arguably one of the hardest practices on stage. Three hours of dancing, singing and acting is not easy.

You have to consistently work on your voice and body to make sure you are performance ready, eight shows a week. Your voice and body are your tools for work... so they need to be maintained and encouraged to flourish.

The Actor's Community can offer both one-to-one coaching and classes for all actors who want to improve their vocal skills. Whether you are just starting out, looking to get into drama school, are a recent graduate or a professional actor who is needing to go over audition material, The Actor's Community is here to give you a helping hand.

"Just wanted to say a massive thank you for the Acting Through Song course. Genuinely one of the best I've done - online or in person - and really going to miss it! The whole structure was brilliant and I've learnt loads in a pretty short space of time... feeling a million times more confident about auditioning!
