I have worked as a professional actress and performance artist for well over a decade. I love acting and have been fortunate enough to travel throughout the United States as a paid actor. When I’m not performing, I can be found in schools directing the school play and teaching young actors how to bring characters to life. I have worked as a casting director, director, assistant director, choreographer, writer, producer, and as an actor. As an actor, I know how important it is to continue to practice your craft and I'm excited to help other young actors by providing a safe and fun class.
Homework OfferedStudents will be asked to practice their assigned pieces (monologues or scenes) outside of class. Memorization or being “off book” is encouraged. Students will also be encouraged to use supplies at home for the final class to bring their character to life. Suggestions for supplies may include: wear a hat, wear sunglasses, bring a book as a prop. Students will not be asked to buy anything for class.

Students should be comfortable dealing with themes such as murder, bullying, love, and fear. We select material that avoids profanity and though age-appropriate a bullying piece might include the word "stupid." We honor the writer's words. This is important when using material from real plays and films as we are not legally allowed to change their words. Students should be mature enough to understand the difference between real and imaginary. We do not use guns as props in class. A piece on "murder" may mention a gun. Participants must be mature enough to understand that referencing a murder or referencing a gun is a part of the character's imaginary world.
