About Britta

I went to Bennington College and studied both technical and performance theatre. My background is in classical theatre mostly, as a performer, Shakespeare, Chekov and the like. As a costume designer I have worked on rock musicals, B movies, contemporary plays and classical theatre.

In performance, I was trained to use both the Stanislofsky and Meisner methods and can explain all aspects of both. I am a trained director in both classical and contemporary style. I have worked in theater in New York City and in regional theatre throughout the east coast, most notably, McCarter Theater. I have also worked at the Princeton Festival.

I have experience as a stage manager in New York City as well.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Film

I have worked as a costume designer on a B movie as well as designed a short. I am familiar with how a production team communicates, having worked as a member of both two film production teams and multiple theatre teams. I have taken film appreciation at Bennington College.

Painting

I am familiar with oil and water color painting. I'm also familiar with several computer generated programs created for the purpose of generating images to appear as though they had been painted. I prefer the brush and paint. I can also silk screen. I can show a student how to work within the boundaries of a canvas to create a painting of an image either from a photo or their imagination that includes care of the canvas, paints, brushes, palette and clean up.

Public Speaking

I started acting at the age of 6. I've learned many ways to overcome a fear of speaking in front of an audience, up staging other speakers and speaking with confidence. I also have a few tricks for people who are afraid to speak aloud and might stammer or stutter. For example listening to the beat of a metronome. I have taken three public speaking classes each with various techniques to help a person who is not the most confident become more comfortable in front of an audience.

Theater

I began acting professionally at the age of 6. I began working back stage professionally in costumes at the age of 14. All of these jobs were through contacts or auctions at McCarter Theater. I also took lessons in make up design, classic acting, contemporary acting and music at McCarter. I continued my education at Bennington College and worked in New York City as a costume designer and wardrobe supervisor as well as assistant stage manager. I've also worked at various regional theatres and in Los Angeles.

Writing

I scored a 5 on the English A.P., was a theater major at Bennington College and have taken many creative writing classes at Bennington as well.
