The Mulholland Academy is an English language acting studio in Amsterdam known for its international programs and unique professional training.

Due to public health concerns the Mulholland Academy has regretfully decided to suspend classes in our venue until, and possibly after, June 1st.

The suspension will be reviewed prior to this date and any changes will be announced. The Mulholland Academy regret any inconvenience to students and to our arts community.

Please note! For students who are in mid flow of classes, and classes beginning in April: we are working behind the scenes and are creating the opportunity for students to work with our tutors to continue some of our core classes. These will begin on-line and then carry over to – finally – meeting weekly as a group – after June 1st – to complete the class cycles.
We will inform you all very soon of these developments.

If you have any questions or inquiries, please do not hesitate to write as our online office will be open.

Keep well, and we will be back with you all as soon as it is safe to do so.
Best wishes from us all,
The Mulholland Team.

..1/2 of what is said in here-flubbidijubbyslizzledizzle..and the other 1/2, worthwhile, practical.

Nows the time to choose, and take a shot at learning one of Shakespeare's finer monologues.. ..use it as a workout, untangle the ideas, and work up to handling the language with some ease. Humanize it..walk, then run with it.
Exercise.

In theatre we have a tradition-
whenever the theatre is empty we are always sure to leave one light on.
Typically on a stand in the center of the stage, this light is known as the ghost light. There are many stories about its origin- but it’s meaning is unmistakable.
It means though the theatre is empty,
WE WILL RETURN.
So here’s to us.
The actors, the technicians, the directors, the carpenters, the designers, the dancers, the teachers, the students, the freelancers, those on tour, those at sea, the electricians, the stitchers, the makers, the stage managers....
THE ARTISTS.
Many of us have taken big hits during this virus. Financial and emotional weights have come crashing down as our entire industry is reduced to nothing but a bunch of ghost lights. But those ghost lights are temporary place holders.
They are a sign.
We might be down now- but our passion, our creativity, our drive is still center stage. We’ll be unplugging those ghost lights in no time. Until then- here’s a ghost light- to let the world know we will be back.

The Mulholland Academy has absolutely changed my life. My experience here, has taught me not just how to be a better actor, but how better to be a human BEING. Which is, in the end, what acting is. It has taught me that acting is not just for the "talented" but, rather, for anyone who can breathe, feel, move...LIVE. And that's simply: everybody! The experience of discovering together the authenticity of ourselves - has produced a community of people from all walks of life and cultures who are deeply bound together as a family. The selfless, unsung heroes of the faculty and staff never ceasing to be teachers, remain our guides throughout our creative lives. MADA is truly a very unique place in the heart of the city. This is a place to discover the true art of Acting, and therefore, of LIFE itself​

I've seen many performances by students of Mulholland Academy and Department of Acting and I was always impressed with the results. The program's students and graduates really seemed like actors with years of experience under their belts, and not like people that had been studying acting for only a few months. I thus think it's a wonderful program in terms of what it can help people achieve.

I feel fortunate for having performed and studied at the Mulholland Academy. An excellent place for acting & learning., it combines many creative and inner elements. Laughing, enjoying, connecting, focusing, expanding, are just some I've experienced fully! The classes are structured in such a way that they really reduce the stress of being seen by others and an audience. I would fully recommend this school and all of its programs, without any hesitation!
