Sarah, an M.F.A. graduate of Yale School of Drama, is an actor, director, published
playwright, published songwriter, solo performer and a Fulbright Scholar.
Sarah has acted in film and television as well as regional and New York theatre, maintaining
her professional status, since she was 7 years old growing up in Los Angeles. Her
plays, published and unpublished, have been performed throughout the regional United
States and Canada as well as the cities of London, New York, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
Additionally, she has performed her darkly comic solo shows internationally at theatre
festivals in Tel Aviv, Israel and New York City.
Sarah received a Fulbright Scholarship to teach Solo Performance Development and Commedia
del 'Arte for a year at the University of Haifa, Israel. During that year she expanded
her creative borders from traditional theatre to site-specific theatre and theatre
with giant puppets. Her fortuitous collaboration with Israeli artists then led to
her co-creation and direction of two prestigious and successful site specific giant
puppet shows in Jerusalem, Israel and Izmir, Turkey.
In Turkey she was engaged for 7 weeks in directing and co-creating an historic 'first
ever' site specific giant puppet show in that country for Izmir's International Puppet
Festival: Kukla Gunleri.
Through her long time relationship with New York theatre professionals, Sarah has
enabled the internships of many University of Memphis undergraduates in a special
program for burgeoning actors and directors in New York City called SPRINGBOARD-NYC:
a program sponsored by the American Theatre Wing to help acclimate and prepare young
talent for an artistic life in the Big Apple.
Sarah teaches stage acting, acting for T.V. and film, solo performance writing and
performing and Commedia del 'Arte.
