Here’s some feedback from past workshops:

“Annie Murtagh-Monks is absolutely one of the most talented and inspiring screen drama teachers in the country.” Pete Templeman – director/ screenwriter “Not Suitable for Children’; “Wanted”; “Bogan Pride”; “Five Bedrooms

The course was inspiring and a lot of fun – the variety of people attracted to the course was an added bonus as we learned as much from each other as we did from the instructor!” Caro – actor

Annie’s knowledge, experience and warm professionalism will teach you so much about the acting profession in a very short time, with tips and techniques that only come from real life hands-on experience. PAC courses, especially Screen Acting, are a hell of a lot of fun, with a great group of like-minded people.” Eddie Stowers
