What people are saying.
"I experienced firsthand the breadth and depth of her wonderful abilities as a singing-actor. Alyssa is dedicated, willing, joyful, and talented. From the first class Alyssa’s work ethic set the tone. She is an easy, natural leader, and a generous collaborator. She is professional, playful, and incredibly smart."
- Katie Donovan,
The University of the Arts, Head of Musical Theater
"Alyssa brought a strong sense of imagination, intellect, and commitment to her work. Alyssa thinks well and possesses a keen sensitivity to language and the nuance of the word. She bears a strong sense of self that she shares freely, impressively aware of herself and her position in the world. Her singing voice is strong and free revealing an authentic connection to both intellectual and emotional nuance."
- Richard Stoppleworth,
The University of the Arts, Former Head of Musical Theater
"Alyssa is a most dedicated actress, passionate teacher, creative director, and an excellent human being. She understands the detailed differences between performing, and leading a group of performers in a collective goal. She has such a solid grip on how both worlds operate...the world view INSIDE the story and OUTSIDE of the story. On top of all of that, she maintains who she is as a good person, and exudes humbleness and warmth that makes everyone want to work with her."
- Gina Cerimele-Mechley,
Co-founder of Cincinnati Actor's Studio and Academy, Professional Director and SAFD Certified Teacher
"Alyssa consistently displays a positive attitude while remaining flexible, shows support for her performers and their needs, and recognizes the importance of a strong work ethic, persistence, and initiative. She is, and will continue to be, one of the most valuable members of our summer faculty and has earned the respect of both students, parents, and teachers in our building and district."

Artistic Director of Three Rivers Children's Theater
