Welcome

Amanda is a Philadelphia based theatre artist, singer, multi-instrumentalist and composer originally from northern New Jersey. She is the co-creator and one half of the comedy duo, Ruth and Estelle; a dynamic pair of entertainers and educators who foster their love of storytelling through a series of joy-filled cabarets, master classes, and their podcast, "Learning Through Laughter". 

 

As an actor, she is dedicated to sharing the humanity, humor, and heart inside every character. She strives to bring to her work simplicity, spontaneity, a sense of quick wit and a spirit of joyful collaboration. She especially enjoys the invigorating process of creating devised theatre and film.

As an artist and musician, she fuses a love of nature, history, poetry and literature into her music and jewelry designs.

PERSUASION

Warwick Institute of Culture | September 3rd & 4th, 2022 | Info

Amanda will spend two weeks in beautiful Warwick, NY to workshop this play by Sarah Rose Kearns, lovingly adapted from Jane Austen's novel.  There will be two work-in-progress presentations over Labor Day weekend.  Amanda will portray both of protagonist Anne's polar opposite sisters, eldest Elizabeth Elliot and youngest Mary Musgrove. She will also serve as Music Director. 

This play is very dear to Amanda, as she has performed in various developmental readings since 2017. From the very first public reading in Saratoga Springs, to the Actors Theatre and Jane Austen Festival in Louisville KY, and many more throughout New York and Philadelphia, she has loved sharing these characters and this story with audiences and cannot wait to see what this workshop breathes into the piece!
