Learn Actng from a Theatre Teacher/ ACtor with 25 years experience
Yael started studying acting at an early age with The Wilma Theatre in Philadelphia, as well as The Walnut Street Theatre. The acting bug got a hold of her and she would commute into Philadelphia by train on her own at the age of 12. By the age of 14 she added singing to her resume and studied Opera in Trenton NJ and Classes at The McCarter Theatre. Yael came from a home that believed in education and craft as her Grandfather was a Classical Pianist, her Father a Trumpet Player and her Mother a Therapist. So study, study, study she did. Fortunately she went to Harry S Truman High School, known in the country as one of the Best Theatre Programs under the Direction of Lou T. Volpe and there she was able to put her skills in action on the main stage. Yael performed in competition plays, "Agnes of God", "The Elephant Man", "House of Blue Leaves". Yael went on to win several state competitions. On the Main Stage "They're Playing Our Song", "Barnum", "Guys and Dolls". After Graduation Yael moved to NYC and attended A.M.D.A and The New School. While in NYC Yael founded her own Theatre Company Wild Guess Productions, which created new one acts. Yael honed her skills as an Actress, Producer and Theatre Developer.SHe moved to Los Angeles, continued acting in TV, and film and went back to school to get her MFA in Performance Pedagogy from LMU.
About Yael S.

The very experience of theatre makes people more aware and sensitive towards several issues of what is happening within the world. Theatre has been an influential factor in my life allowing my creativity to flourish. As an Experienced Actress and Producer with a demonstrated history of working in the performing arts industry. I have appeared in over 55 plays from N.Y.C. to La. I was happy to be a co-founder of Wild Guess Production Company in N.Y.C. For the past 25 years, I have been a Theatre teacher from summer camps to after-school programs. Most recently I have had the great fortune of teaching a Beginning Acting Class to Freshman at Loyola Marymount University. This past spring semester I had my students collaborate and write their own plays about the issues that are pressing and relevant within this time. I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts from The New School and a Master of Fine Arts in Performance Pedagogy from Loyola Marymount University.
