Kate has been my coach for over twenty years and I never tire of our creative process. Her eye for detail and ear for truth are impeccable. She asks the kind of questions that lead me to richer choices, and is always honest as well as supportive. Her ideas inspire me and her spirit lifts me.

Since Hollywood casting director, Margery Simkin introduced me to Kate McGregor Stewart, I never go to a network meeting, or even an audition, without working it out with Kate. She has a world of wisdom, intuition and craft to share with an actor. And two heads are definitely better than one. When I am overseas, a Skype lesson is invaluable in the run up to a big job. Thanks to Kate, I have never felt more powerful as an actress. She is just wonderful!

Everyone who is really serious about acting should study with my coach, Kate McGregor-Stewart. On set or off, her clarity always empowers me. She’s my secret weapon.

I’m happy to be your sponsor, biggest fan and friend.Scott Rudin, Hollywood Producer

Kate is a masterful teacher whose classes and workshops can be truly transformative. You need to experience this woman live and in person. I urge you to make this a priority for your career.In the past few months I have met with several Casting Directors and Agents who have all said the same thing, the acting component of the musical theater audition is the single greatest component of talent they are looking for. The singing is a given, they all know you can sing, what they need to see (and very often don’t) is the acting, truthfully, and authentically. Mr. David Sabella-Mills, http://www.sabellamills.com/
I took your acting classes, and my success is in no small part due to you and your approach to acting. Having my own sitcom on TBS and the movies that I have done, I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. I really think that other acting coaches should have to watch and learn from you.

Kate is one of the best acting coaches I have worked with in my extensive training career in both NY and LA. She brings out the best in her students because she is incredibly perceptive, sensitive, and smart about choosing the best acting choices to construct the most riveting performances possible. As an actress, I admire her and as an acting coach, I thrive because of her.

Kate,I just wanted to say thank you very much for such a wonderful class last weekend. I went into the class hopeful but not knowing what to expect and the entire weekend exceeded all my expectations. You were able to articulate specific things for me to work on and take notice of that will bring my performance to another level. I appreciate you listening to me at the beginning of the class and working with me on exactly what I wanted. Thank you for an informative and transformational weekend.Molly Fahey, Actress
Without fail, whenever I do a workshop with Kate, I book something soon thereafter.Chante Marlena Lewis, Actress
Kate is an inspiration. She is not only an acting coach, she is a life coach, business coach and a kind person. Her work allows me to take risks, to stretch my abilities, yet always strive to do my absolute best. Her comments are encouraging while truthfully critical. Her classes are professional.

I was able to head into the test session with a full level of confidence. I had a blast digging into the material and character with Kate!David Haack, Actor
Kate the LA audition workshop was great. Your insight about me rushing and showing me how to slow down was already put to use in a play reading today. Great fun and no nerves! And another playwright asked me to consider doing a reading of his play. THANKS! Melanie Henderson, Actress. LA Audition Workshop 8/13/2011
I couldn’t have done this role in The Glass Menagerie without you! The role, the confidence, the challenge, the unending dialogue, the accent, etc. You gave me the courage to go for it! The help you’ve given me is such a blessing. I appreciate you so much!
George and I enjoyed our session with you so much. You reinvigorated us and gave us some direction to go in.
