I founded my own theater company 21 years ago and have been teaching and directing actors from ages 6-80 over more than 65 productions. I am an engaging and deeply knowledgeable theater professional who will guide you to get the most out of every speech you want to speak or role you want to play. I can work with you on audition pieces for schools, college or Broadway, as well as just help round out your scene work when you're already in the middle of a rehearsal process. I have quick tips and fixes for any scenario and my approach is personal, and centered on what you want to get out of your experience and what you are bringing to the table in terms of creating a character. My specialty is Shakespeare and I can help you unravel all those imbedded text clues. Let's get started!

Diana is a skilled and knowledgeable acting teacher. She helped my shy son find his voice and become the confident young man he is today. Personally, Diana helped me as an adult to overcome stage fright. Once I told Diana of my issue, she encouraged me to join one of her productions, and she nurtured me through the whole experience. Her skillful techniques and her caring, nurturing nature is a perfect combination for an amazing acting coach.
Carol
My daughter has worked with Diana in CST for 8 years. It is truly remarkable what she does for these kids, and what she gets out of them. By providing a safe space where they can learn, question, and have fun with the material, they become comfortable performing, and sharing their gifts with the public. Not only that, but they are learning Shakespeare, which has huge effect on their understanding of literature and global history. Diana makes all this FUN for the kids. They are there because they want to be, and from the youngest to the oldest they put their all into their performances while always supporting each other.
Olga
Diana’s teaching style must be a lot of fun, because my son has been studying acting with her for more than 3 years! He is always looking forward to the next learning / practice session!

I believe the development and training of an artist is a special, sacred, and important act.

If you would like to find more truth, more humor, and more joy in your work as an actor or performing artist, then I would be privileged to help you along that journey!

As a teacher I have taught around the country at universities as a guest artist and faculty member, as well as with performing arts centers from coast to coast. As a practicing artist, I am continually researching new and updated methods and find this passion translates into my lessons with my students.

I believe in positive reinforcement and building upon a student's current skill set, rather than tearing an actor to pieces, in order to bring about the most effective results, all the while finding JOY in the work!

I have performed as an actor, singer, and musician Off-Broadway in New York, on many National tours, and at regional theatres all across the United States. I find this varied experience allows me to

Classes will be tailored to the student's level of expertise. In general, the student will decide on the direction the classes. Do you want to work on dialects, stage voice, method acting, on-camera techniques, monologues, audition techniques et.al? There are many directions these classes can move, so when I express a "tailored" approach, you can rely on gaining the specific knowledge and skills you seek.

About Randy

I have always been an actor first, it is the craft and discipline in which I hold my advanced degrees; it is my first and eternal love. There really isn't much more one could add to such a claim. Simultaneously I have believed a teacher is born, not bred; and I was born to be in theatre, and now, w

I can help you with script analysis, breaking down beats and emotionally tapping into your character to create a well rounded arc for whomever you're playing. I can help you with dialects, inflection, projection, or camera technique. I can help you prepare for an upcoming audition or work on a role you've been cast in. I'm also happy to do scenework with anyone else if you need some extra eyes on your rehearsal :)

Our first lesson with Mallory was wonderful. We were looking for a music coach for our 11 year old, who has interests in vocals, guitar, and writing pop songs. Mallory has skills in all these areas, and did a fantastic job listening to our son’s goals, dividing the 1st lesson into manageable chunks, and keeping things fun for a tween. And my son was blown away by Mallory’s fluency in pop music!!

Mallory is great- patient and explains things in a super easy way to understand and process.

I came to Shauna to learn acting techniques and skills to improve my acting abilities. I learned so much from Shauna. I looked forward to my weekly acting lessons and the preparation that went into each lesson. Shauna helped me feel at ease, even when doing something new and challenging. She encouraged me to reach outside my comfort zone and the exercises helped me really understand acting. This has been a great experience and I look forward to working with Shauna in the future!"
