Andrew C. Philadelphia, PA

About Andrew

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre from Lehigh University. I have studied abroad in Ireland at the Gaiety School of Acting, as well as participating in workshops run by the world renowned Tectonic Theatre Project. I have experience as a director, actor, designer, and technician, and can give students an overall view of the world of theatre. A musician has an instrument, an artist has an array of tools to visually express themselves, an actor has but the body and mind. As such, my lessons are geared towards not only strengthening knowledge of craft, but knowledge of self. When the student is strengthened in this way, these lessons assist not only on the stage, but in everyday life. Text is added last, so the actor may understand their flexibility, rather than being subjected to roles
