After having spent the better part of a year in L.A. working and training, Kiki has developed a practical, applicable, technique that will enable students to:

  • Rock an audition
  • Build a character
  • Read the secret ‘code’ in any given sides
  • Take the guess work out of audition prep
  • Look the part
  • Actually enjoy auditioning!

This three week intensive offers nine hours of training that will focus on Film/TV acting technique, but is certainly applicable to Theatre or other types of acting.

Open to new and experienced performers.


Kirstin Howell is a Halifax-based actor, singer, and acting coach. After spending some time training and working in Los Angeles, Kirstin began developing the system known as The LA Technique. This practical, step by step system helps to take the guess work out of auditioning, reduces audition nerves, and encourages students to ‘stop acting’. The approach is applicable to all styles and types of acting - film, stage, voiceover. For the purposes of this class series we will be focusing on film/tv.

Kirstin has performed and trained across the US and Canada at some of North America's top theatre schools including Dalhousie University, Saddleback College, and the prestigious Sheridan Institute Musical Theatre-Performance Program [Honors Graduate].

Since graduating from Sheridan, she has joined both CAEA and ACTRA, she has booked film roles for Netflix, CBC, Lifetime, Showcase, CityTV, TVTropolis, and more, and has worked for Neptune Theatre, Two Planks And A Passion, Sierra Repertory Theatre, Chester Playhouse, The Georgian Theatre Festival, etc. She is also passionate about creating work for herself and her peers, and is the co-founder of 521 Films; most recently having written/directed/produced a series Pilot called The Sunny Daye Show, in which she plays the title character, and Kiki Show, a sketch comedy vlog most known for her original character, Kaitlyn Ogilvie.
