With twenty-five years of experience working in the professional theatre predominately as an actor, Erin has also served as a voice and text coach, developed acting classes for both youth and adults, directed and is now the Artistic Director of GreenStage. Erin’s training began at Westminster College then off to the Professional Actor Training Program at Ohio University and The Shakespeare Theatre in Washington D.C. It is her belief that Acting is about telling the truth. That truth is discovered by exploration and analysis of text, physicality, and one’s understanding of the world of the play, as well as, an individual’s experience. This, coupled with a passion to communicate that truth, is what Erin considers great acting.
