Testimonials

​"Liz is one of the most genuine and authentic artists I've met, one who has a compassionate, playful approach to her coaching. Liz helped me develop a rich and meaningful world for the monologues I was workshopping. I felt safe and capable, and that gave me the confidence to let go and explore possibilities I hadn't entertained due to my own limiting fears. Liz has an impeccable eye for detail and helped guide me toward adding new layers to my performance.  I came out of our sessions with a deeper understanding of the practice of preparation work.  I also feel that I took steps forward in gaining more courage and confidence about whatever lies ahead, with the knowledge that I have a coach that will help me through."

- Christina Kozak

" Liz creates an environment that lets you feel safe to play. Before you know it you understand the character and the story, more than you ever thought possible. She is intuitive beyond measure, smart, witty and kind. The whole experience is the combination of productive and comfy. I could not recommend her more."

 - Laura Schutt

" Liz is one of the most talented actors I know and her talents transfer over into her directing and coaching abilities. Her love, care, wit, and knowledge of the craft take over a rehearsal room, creating a space free of judgement and fear. During an acting student's education there is always one teacher/director that they truly connect with because of the unbreakable trust that they have in that person: one experience that honestly and beautifully impacts the students education and life. Liz Saunders was my person. She still is."

- Jake Deeth

“Liz has really helped me to improve my voiceover and acting skills. I always have fun when we have training sessions and she provides great tips and feedback that I use whenever I speak on the radio or when I record a voiceover. I would highly recommend her for both new actors and experienced ones alike.” 

- Blake Crash Priddle 

"Liz is an excellent coach. She removes the barrier between the myself and the  character, which helps me connect to the role. Her insights into the nuances of the script and her attention to detail were more in depth than I've ever experienced. I came away with the confidence of knowing that I didn't have to "act", but to trust in myself. I came away a much better performer."

- Dash Grundy

"I met Liz in my second year of theatre school and she was the first director I had who genuinely cared about my needs as an artist. She took the time to understand who I was and the way that would effect my character development. She is a compassionate artist and visionary who cares deeply about the people she is working with. I cannot thank her enough for her mentorship and the influence she has had on me as an actress and director."

- Chelsea Woodard

 " Liz is truly one of my favourite actors of all time. I am thrilled to suggest her coaching sessions. She has the rare quality of compassion and artistry. I've seen my clients come away with a deeper focus, a stronger clarity and richer understanding of their relationship with the character."
