    Robert picket directed me in two plays. He had much more confidence in my abilities than I had in myself.For a director to show calm positive encouragement a successful outcome is produced. This was in the early 1970’s.

  • Beri Weisman

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to start by asking a few basic questions and getting to know my student and what gets them excited and what they are passionate about.  I move from there to  find material that is age appropriate and help them find ways to relate to the material.  I work from a combination of trusted acting techniques.
