Theatre

Becca Griffing

Theatre Teacher

Becca holds a dual Bachelors Degree in Theatre Arts and English Literature, and is currently pursuing her Masters Degree in Educational Theatre at The City College of New York. She also spent a summer studying Shakespearean Literature at Trinity College in Oxford, England. Prior to joining the team, Becca performed in different acting troupes throughout the Greater Boston Area, as well as spending her summers working as a children's theatre director. Here, she directed multiple productions and taught electives based in creative thinking and improvisational techniques. Becca believes that children are able to learn best when they feel comfortable to be themselves, which is why she constantly brings her love of theatricality into the classroom, be it through improv games, ukulele jam sessions, or theatrical retellings of her favorite story books. Our Theatre classes are made up of movement exercises, improv games, storytelling and songs. Through these techniques, we are able to develop socially and emotionally, as well as learn skills in cooperation, listening, teamwork and self confidence!
