Alyssa is an outstanding director. When she directed "Father of the Bride" at the Oldham County Schools Arts Center, I feel that she truly brought out the best in me and my fellow actors. Alyssa is easy to work with, creative, and funny. Her directing skills are impeccable. Although I have not taken acting lessons with her on a regular basis, I was lucky enough to have her as a sub once, and she did a wonderful job, helping students to think outside the box and to feel comfortable trying new ideas. I definitely recommend Alyssa to anyone interested in theater acting.+ Read More
