EDUCATION, PRODUCING, and PROGRAMMING
PRODUCING, PROGRAMMING, AND MANAGEMENT
I believe actors of any age and level of experience are capable of the extraordinary and deserve a teacher who creates an exceptional atmosphere for their personal and professional growth. Through humor and compassion I work to create a safe learning environment for the cast and crew by deliberately designing an experience that is fun, demanding and supports risk-taking. One of my hopes as a theatre educator is to instill a love of learning and growing in the actors, as I share my own passion for the theater with them. It is my job to demonstrate extraordinary energy, organization and professionalism to my students and production team. By communicating clear and consistent expectations, quality theatre education is achieved in a positive environment that fosters learning and growing.
