An award winning actor (Elliot Norton Award ’90) and acting teacher (Outstanding Teacher ’08 - Emerson College), Dossy Peabody coaches both professional and non-professional actors of all ages.
Over the years, Dossy’s actors have been and are being accepted to some of the best graduate and undergraduate training programs in the country.
They are being cast in productions at such regional theaters as Trinity Rep, Merrimack Rep, Gloucester Stage, Speakeasy, Lyric Stage, Actors’ Shakespeare, New Rep, Boston Playwrights’, A.R.T. & Huntington. In addition, her actors are auditioning for, and getting cast in, films & television at CP Casting, Boston Casting, Paradice Casting, & Slate Casting.
Her actors are applying to theatre schools, preparing audition monologues, working on stage and film roles, or simply studying the craft and art of acting to develop and expand their skills.
Dossy coaches singing actors who want to explore the lyrics to enhance and energize their performance, as well professionals from other fields who feel they might benefit either professionally or personally from her coaching.
For those students who are unable to meet in person, and who are established clients, a coaching session through skype is possible as well.
From Kate Snodgrass
Boston Playwrights’ Theatre:
“Whenever I'm asked about acting coaches in the area, I recommend Dossy Peabody first and foremost. Always.”
"She's a gifted actor herself. She's been in two of my plays, so I know firsthand. She's so good that the Boston Theatre Critics opted to recognize her with their very first Elliot Norton Outstanding Actor Award."
"And what she does on stage, she brings to her coaching sessions. I know it when actors have worked with Dossy because they're honest and true in their responses. They're all about the work, not about showing me how talented they are. They're professional. I want to watch actors like Dossy--who can live out their characters truthfully, who make intelligent and spontaneous choices, and who have a seriousness of purpose. Dossy brings those qualities and more to her coaching. She's very simply the best."
