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!

Racheal did a wonderful job helping my daughter with her stage presence.
Sara V.
My 9 yr. old daughter received singing lessons with Rachel. Rachel was SO wonderful, patient, and creative with every session with her. She was constantly coming up with different ways to keep her engaged and was always reassuring her to increase her confidence. She gave great constructive feedback on how my daughter was doing and what she can work on to improve. I give her 5 stars! Thanks so much, Rachel!
Steve
Overall, very impressed. She is direct and doesn't tell you something you want to hear. Her evaluation process is well rounded and planned. She puts together a great curriculum to know what to expect in the coming lessons. Very easy going person and makes you feel completely comfortable at the initial lessons.

"My 16 year old daughter has been taking online lessons with Kelsey for 2 months now and it is all she talks about!!! She adores and respects Kelsey as a person, a teacher and a career coach. Her confidence level is increasing and this in itself makes me thrilled to have made this inverstment in her. Therapy sessions are great, however, when you are able to find a coach and instructor that helps your child find their inner confidence and heart song through something they love, well, there is nothing better than that! Thank you, Kelsey! As we all know, it is not just knowing how to do it or even doing it - execution style is everything and you have sincerely won my daughter’s heart!"
