NEC Training Program Testimonial:

“It was a great honor to work with Marie she a well of information.. historical facts/literature/theater/grants/voice/movement/…  like coming across a “rare groove” when that groove hits you for the first time, it stays with you a long time. Really powerful stuff, with a lot of layers drama/comedy/accents! She is very in touch with how to develop strong characters.

kymbali-craigI gained a lot of knowledge and confidence in her class, and I had it inside of me the whole time, but she helped bring it out.I was a lil green to the whole classical theater that the NEC is famous for, Marie is a very strong actress herself so there are a lot of gems you get just by listening when she speaks.”
