I both performed and took classes at The Garage from eighth grade until I graduated from high school. After graduating and after completed four years at NYU for drama I was honored to perform my one woman show at the Solofest. Both performing in shows and taking Michael Bias's classes were instrumental parts of my development as an artist and as a young adult. Michael's classes encouraged me to respect theatre and view acting it as a craft. What began as a hobby soon turned into a passion that I knew I would pursue throughout my life. Class was a time to learn and ask questions, a safe place to try new things without fear of failing or looking silly. Without these classes, I don't think I would have fallen in love with theatre. Performing in the Garage shows was THE highlight of my high school years! Often times in conversation with other alumni we say that these were the best years of our life! Through these shows I gained confidence and courage. I found a community, a family really, who shared my dedication to theatre. At the Garage, no one feels like an outsider. I made best friends at the Garage that I will have for life. In summary, I highly recommend participating in the Garage Theatre Group!!!
