James Beaman Biography

I'm a classically trained actor who has run the gamut of stage performance, from Shakespeare to musical theatre to the cabaret circuit. I starred as Sir Robin in the first national tour of "Monty Python's Spamalot" and have appeared on the stages of some of the finest regional theaters, from The Kennedy Center, to Goodspeed Musicals, to Shakespeare festivals from Alabama to Missouri.

I received my training at Boston University and the Academy for Classical Acting, and have studied with some of the finest teachers and coaches in New York, including Tim Phillips, Wynn Handman, and Matthew Corozine. I coach actors and singers for auditions and solo performance, direct cabaret acts, and have created and taught programs for young actors including the Goodspeed Musicals Audition Intensive, preparing aspiring high schoolers to audition for college theatre programs.
