Regina D.

O Fallon, MO

About Regina

Regina had been playing the piano since age 5 and the trumpet since age 12. She began learning each by reading notes and later learned to play by ear. She was pianist for the Gateway College of Evangelism Chorale (where she majored in Church Music ) during her first year and played trumpet for the chorale in her second year and throughout both years summer tour. Currently she is the pianist/drummer/bassist for The Outpost Church in St. Charles, MO.

Regina has been acting for the past 15 years. She has been a part of 15 community theater plays, was a supporting character in 2 seasons of
the web series "Completing Kaden" produced by Real Bean Entertainment and was an extra in a movie that aired on ABC.

Lessons will be fun and informative. I believe that people learn faster and more completely when they are enjoying themselves.

*** Travel Equipment ***
They will need an instrument (to practice on) and they will need to purchase the materials (I will buy them and they purchase from me).

Not only is Kelsey proficient and very knowledgeable, she also has so much enthusiasm and an obvious love for teaching. She put me at ease right away and from the very beginning showed such excitement to be working with me. She comes prepared, takes the session very seriously, but also has fun with it so time flies by. I'm honored to be her student and pupil, and look forward to many more acting lessons, as she imparts her wealth of knowledge of Shakespeare and acting technique.

Kelsey M.

Saint Louis, MO

I've studied acting extensively in college. I've been trained in Contemporary, Shakespeare, Restoration, and Shaw and Wilde. I have voice and speech training to make sure you're properly supported and have dialect training as well! I will focus on a clear understanding and connection to the text as well as making good, committed choices. Also, most importantly, that we are having fun because that's what acting should be!

About Kelsey

I'm 20 years old and I've been studying voice for 8 years. I've been acting for 6 years and I'm currently in school pursuing my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre at a popular theatre school and I'm about to start my senior year.

Olaf E.

Saint Louis, MO

Pretending is not just play, but IMAGINED POSSIBILITY. In session we will familiarize ourselves with the physical and vocal instrument, so as to allow for our opened imagination to fully affect us therein. This means physical and vocal warm ups to explore range, and comfort zones. From thence into play...whether you're working on technique or a specific piece for an audition, we will work to free the soul, get you out of your head, and integrate an honest breathing human being.

About Olaf

I have been working professionally as an actor since 2010, and performing since the beginning. A student myself, I also direct, sing opera, and musical theatre. I believe, as Stella Adler tells us, that growth as an actor and growth as a human being are synonymous. Too often our growth his hindered by pointless inhibitions and socialization. The gap between inter-secondary and collegiate/professional theatre is oh so vast and all to perturbing. I strive to curb this by enhancing the actor's craft through exploration and play which will get us OUT of our heads, and integrate an honest breathing
human being through voice, body, and technique. The student is the fertile grounds upon which we must plant the seed for teaching HOW to think rather than WHAT to think. Love, light, and positive energy always.
