Testimonials

Her teaching method is unlike any training I have had in the past and I am sad I waited this long to get this form of training. Her material was easy to understand and she challenged and pushed every student towards success! I would take any class she offered because I felt myself grow more as an actress in one semester than in the 8 years I have performed in theatre.

– Noelle, Actor

Frances Saxton is hands–down one of the best professors I have ever had at the college. Not only did she encourage the entire class, regardless of whether or not they were a major/minor, to pursue acting after graduation, she gave us resources to get our feet in the door. Frances provided us with audition tips and tricks, sent us listservs that send out local audition and theatrical information, and provided us with the names of top–rated acting internships. I was recently cast in a short–film shooting in the Norfolk area, and I have to say that is was all because of Frances and the resources she has provided me. She truly goes above and beyond when it comes to helping her students, and has a positive attitude every single day. I have never met someone so dedicated to enhancing student's lives and their love for performing.

Frances Saxton is one of the best acting teachers that I have had an opportunity to work with and learn under so far in my career. She takes the time to get to know her students in order to help them develop more as actors. She will show you how to improve upon your weakness as an actor as well as help you grow and develop your strengths. Frances also uses a wide variety of techniques and exercises when teaching, allowing her students to find a method that best suits them. Her professional experience has also allowed her to pass on the knowledge of how to find a job in an acting career, and allows her to help each of her students develop these skills. Her high energy and bright spirit make any class you have with her highly enjoyable and fun. I would highly recommend Frances Saxton to anyone has an interest on learning more about acting and to someone how wants to expand upon their own acting skill.
