Morgan and Tristan Vaughan teach Shakespeare acting and scene study classes at Guild Hall and have been a huge favorite of our patrons for the past two years - I am constantly thanked for bringing their classes here by students from age 16 to 60, and I know that their expertise, passion, and enthusiasm will make for an amazing experience for younger children! I cannot recommend them enough.

"I’ve had the great pleasure of knowing Morgan Vaughan for over 15 years, and Tristan for more than 8, and have worked with them onstage and in the classroom many times. Not only are they gifted and highly skilled actors, they have the passion to share their comprehensive knowledge with the young and aspiring.
As a teacher in the art and craft of making theatre, I couldn’t recommend them more highly."
