TheatresCool began in 2004 in the basement of The Coffeehouse in Normal, IL and transplanted four years later to its own storefront space at 403 N. Main St. in downtown Bloomington, IL.
TheatresCool has been an artistic home celebrating diversity, self-expression and professionalism in Central Illinois, that teaches the technique of method acting to beginning and professional actors. This same technique is used by the world’s favorite actors like Robert Deniro, Al Pacino, Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp and Juliette Binoche many of whom worked with or taught Kymberly Harris, Artistic Director, during her training at the Actors Studio MFA Program and beyond in New York City. The students of TheatresCool have been learning the important truths of what it means to be an actor. Our programs are aimed at training people of different ages at a professional level. Classes are aimed at enhancing individual creativity, literacy, self esteem, musicality, movement, sense of fun, self confidence, performance and theatre skills.
In 2012, TheatresCool expanded to Los Angeles, CA. Dedicated to her students, Kymberly continues to provide her students the tools and skills they need to succeed in professional acting by offering private coaching sessions as well as creative counseling by appointment: TheatresCool@gmail.com.
These sessions will prepare you for professional auditions or college auditions. You will develop your technique as well as overcome self esteem issues or creative blocks.
Kymberly is also available to be hired by professional actors and studios for specific television, musical, film and TV projects. She has experience and success in coaching all ages of working and beginning actors, and models as they transition to acting.
