I'm Marilyn and I was a substitute teacher and teacher's aid in Alaska for two years. I specialized in elementary reading and writing as well as art, theater and public speaking. If you are interested in becoming an actress or actor, I can help you become the actor/actress of your dreams! I am an audition monologue expert. I can help you get the part you want in the school play, community theater play or help you audition for summer theater festivals. I also have experience in working in film and acting for the camera. I can help you prepare for acting in commercials and movies. Since I am an award winning playwright I can also write monologues specifically for YOU for auditions. I can give you tips on how to memorize lines and help with the characterization for your roles in plays and musicals. I can also teach you how to write your own plays. I have directed student plays and community theater plays in Alaska and California.
I have studied the Bible since I was five years old. I attended church Bible studies throughout my school years and also studied the Bible in depth at a Christian Junior High School and in college at Pepperdine University. I have been a Vacation Bible School teacher, Volunteer Youth Group leader and teacher and have lead Bible studies with college students. I have attended in-depth studies of almost all of the Old Testament books as well as the New Testament. Since I was also a theatre major, I was in two Christian acting troupes that traveled throughout California. I wrote Christian skits and plays and performed them at churches and Youth Group Festivals.
I am an award winning photographer. I have recently submitted several photos to a contest and received two Honorable Mentions. Also, I entered three of my photos into the very prestigious California State Fair -- out of 1500 entries, two of my photos were accepted into the color photography class. Also, many, many of my nature and landscape photos have been shown on local news and weather reports on KCRA Channel 3. I have experience in Photopro 3X and Adobe Photoshop.
I studied Public Speaking at Pepperdine University and California State University, Sacramento. Since I was a theatre major, public speaking came naturally to me, however, I learned many techniques to improve my delivery and calm my nerves when speaking to large groups. I can teach these techniques to you so that you can become more comfortable when speaking in public. Since I am also a writer, I can assist you in making your speech or report more enjoyable by incorporating excellent content, humor and even audience participation.
I have been a theatre major since I was in high school and I went on to study acting and theatre arts at Pepperdine University and California State University, Sacramento. At Pepperdine I took acting classes for theatre and film and studied with some of Hollywood's most famous teachers and directors. I won a Best Actress Award at Pepperdine University and for several years I acted in Community Theatres in Los Angeles and Sacramento. I specialize in dramatic, realistic acting but I have also appeared in comedies and musicals. I also specialize in audition techniques: preparing dramatic, comedic, and/or classical monologues.
I also write plays and have had several of my plays produced in California, Alaska and Nebraska. In 1999, one of my plays won the Edward Albee Yukon Pacific Playwriting Award and in 2009 one of my one act plays won Best New Play in Omaha, Nebraska.
