About the Founder

Kristen fell in love with theater when she performed in her very first show: Almost Treasure Island in 2008. Since then, Kristen has gone on to gain her B.F.A. in Theater Arts Performance from Hofstra University in New York., as well as working professionally with Forbes 30 under 30 Director Samantha Cannold, and Hamilton's Ariana Afsar. As a San Diego County local, she has gotten to work with La Jolla Playhouse for their WOW! Festival, The San Diego Repertory Theater, Trinity Theater Company, Coronado Playhouse and others. While her love of performing is strong, Kristen has truly found a passion for supporting the next generation of actors fall in love with performing themselves. She has made some of her favorite memories directing children's theater, mainly Disney shows, (you will come to know she is an avid Disney fan). She has been fortunate to put on shows like The Lion King Jr., The Little Mermaid, and Annie! And now is the time to take that step further to create an entire space for children to feel confident, welcome, and ready to be the next best story tellers!
