Carole’s joy when teaching and directing is infectious. She will guide, assist, and support your growth as an actor. The first thing I noticed in the year that I’ve been working with Carole is her quiet patience and love of acting. She constantly seeks out new ideas through reading, attending plays, watching films, and taking classes, and always shares what she’s learned. Carole brings a wealth of information and knowledge to each coaching session, acquired from her years of teaching and mentoring students.

Carole Zucker changed my life. Her workshops have inspired me on so many levels. Carole is full of life and spunk, and there is never a dull moment in her presence. She is non-judgmental and honest with her students and encourages their strengths and helps them with their weaknesses. Take her workshops and HAVE FUN!
-Micha Lazare, actor, New York
Carole makes no pretenses about her class being a launch pad to stardom, or a networking place, or some kind of seminar on the business – and does not see herself as an acting guru of any kind. What she does is sit back, watch, listen, and then tell you exactly what she saw up there. Hers is an eye trained by years of observation and deep thought on what it is we do, and there is no hope of fooling her, of charming her, of getting away with anything but being true on stage. She points out falseness, or where you went off-track, but without letting her ego get in the way. For Carole, the work is the thing. She teaches you to respect that, and when you do, no one is more excited by the inevitable result than she. Thank you, Carole.
-Scott Clarkson, actor, Toronto
Carole helped me to understand the process of acting and the difference between performing and being. Carole is a generous, sensitive and talented person, a mentor, who guides you to achieve the most brilliantly simple moments of “just being” on stage.
-Gina Haraszti, filmmaker, Budapest/Montreal
Carole’s classes and teachings provide what any true actor needs – how to read between and underneath the lines of any script. Working scenes in Carole’s classes was always exciting. Carole has a way of instinctively knowing which buttons to push and which walls to break down in order to bring out your best. Carole’s Classes Rock!!
-Sora Olah, television presenter and actor, Toronto
I thought I was getting into this workshop to be a better director and actually the class made me a better person. Carole is such a capable guide; she keeps the class honest and authentic. She knows when to push you to go where you’ve always secretly wanted to go, and she’ll do it with generous encouragement and a wicked sense of humor. It’s a liberating space that Carole creates, and you simply have to trust her.
