“One of the best decisions I have ever made was to enroll in The ARC Foundations Workshops with Micheal Beh. It was such a pleasure to be around someone as talented and experienced as Micheal and also be surrounded by some amazing like minded people from all walks of life on the same journey which made it a lot easier to face.  It has been invaluable to me in life as well as in casting.  I can’t recommend this enough.”

“I enrolled in the ARC classes after a long period away from theatre. I loved it! Michael drilled us in script analysis and used a wide range of techniques to get us to immerse ourselves in our characters. We worked with great stage and film scripts, including “Angels in America”, “Thelma and Louise” as well as  Ibsen and Tennessee Williams. I’d recommend the classes for anyone finding their way back in to acting or wanting to extend their work.”

“With voice and movement we arrive
Showing little form or grasp
Then patiently prosed, poised, prepared and prompted
Michael takes us all to task.

I await this man's challenges for me in 2019. Join us! Have fun while learning about the most important person in your life.  Yourself. Thank you Michael.”

ARC Adult Acting Classes - TestimonialsJackie WileyARC Foundations

“Michael Beh's classes are simply wonderful. He has a wonderful way of stimulating individual personal growth within a group setting. I'm learning how to find the truth of a character inside myself and I've also opened the door to me being more honest with myself. I cannot recommend the ARC Program enough.”

ARC Adult Acting Classes - TestimonialsGene BanyardARC Extension

“I attended Michael Beh's ARC Extension acting class in 2018 and I could not recommend it highly enough. I love to breakdown a good script, to analyse any given role and create a character that is three dimensional and believable. ARC Extension allows you to do this because Michael Beh guides you firmly and with love through the character creation process. There are no easy options, no lazy benefits to Michael's process which I appreciated no-end because the skills, knowledge and performance experience gained within his ARC Extension course, is second to none for any aspiring actor and lover of the craft.”

ARC Adult Acting Classes - TestimonialsMark JonesARC Foundations

“I originally signed on to the ARC Workshops to get better at performing - especially as a player for Brisbane Playback Theatre. I achieved that and a lot more. I’ve gained a knowledge of theatre terms and conventions. I’ve gained an appreciation of some of the great masters, from Stanislasvski to Shakespeare. I’ve learnt how to look at dramatic text to determine what lies beneath, I’ve learnt to work better with other performers, and most of all found the joy and fun of learning about acting.
The trainer, Michael Beh, comes with a wealth of knowledge, experience and success in theatre production. Michael’s greatest genius is finding the needs of his participants and tailoring the program to suit. My performances have now dramatically improved (pun intended). I and others find myself more creative, more responsive, more confident and a better team player. ”

ARC Adult Acting Classes - TestimonialsJill GriffithsARC Foundations

“After enrolling in ARC Foundation Workshops last year I soon discovered the ability to access and extend my inner self to a level of potential that outweighed my former expectations. Acting learned the right way forces the brain to use sections of the mind to express what has been suggested to you as an actor in creative and profound ways. The ARC Workshops teach how each facet of acting can produce an outstanding outcome; one in which the performer unlocks and in so doing, brings a multitude of abilities to the table.
Acting done safely brings story to life's events, whether in truth or in fiction.  The text, the material, the environment in which you draw those ideas is testament to how your own effectiveness can be played out on stage.  ARC Foundations are wonderful thought provoking workshops.  As a trained singer, they have extended me, challenged me, entertained me and given me great joy as I reinvigorate my craft as a performer.”

ARC Adult Acting Classes - TestimonialsChelsea O'BrienARC Extension

"The ARC Acting Program provides a wonderful opportunity for actors to develop their craft and network with the Brisbane Industry. Joining Michael’s class was a game-changer for a young actress like me; I was finally given a place where I could work on strong female roles and incredibly juicy text! Under Michael’s direction I felt constantly challenged yet capable and my craft benefitted enormously. Michael’s connections to the Brisbane Industry also opened up many doors. After performing at an Extension Workshop Showcase, I received offers from agents and signed with one!"
