Learn to Tackle Monologues Like a Pro
Looking for help selecting that perfect monologue for your audition? Need help polishing a piece? I'm here to help! I specialize in selecting and coaching material for auditions and performances as well as providing comprehensive acting training. I also assist in filming and editing reels and audition material.
About Shelby D.

Hi! My my name is Shelby and I can't wait to work with you! I graduated from Saint Michael's College in Vermont with my Bachelor's in Musical Theatre and am now pursuing my Master's Degree in Drama Therapy with Lesley University. I have worked with companies including Saint Michael's Playhouse, Cape Rep Theatre Company, and Barrington Stage Company. I was a member of the inaugural Musical Theatre Conservatory at Barrington Stage Company. My work as an actor and choreographer has been recognized by the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival, including a nomination for the Richard Maltby Jr. Award. My choreography was also featured at the Vermont College Dance Festival for 2 consecutive years. My passion is coaching specific pieces for auditions, recitals, concerts, etc., although I do provide comprehensive vocal and acting training. I believe in finding material that suites you, not changing you to fit into the material. You are a unique, individual performer and my goal is always to highlight that! My style of coaching is quick, direct, and high-energy. I am often found jumping up and down and celebrating my students' successes as they are going through a piece. We are in this process together! **Note that due to the current situation with COVID-19, I am not available for in-home lessons at this time. I have significant experience with online lessons and would love to work via the online platform. Please send me a message if you have questions or concerns regarding online lessons.

I've have taken a couple of classes with Shelby now for my speaking voice and she is awesome! She's a knowledgeable and enthusiastic teacher. Shelby's classes have a comfortable environment that encourages learning. Would highly recommend her!

My daughter absolutely loved her and was easily able to apply the corrections and coaching to her songs. She is looking forward to their next lesson together.
