Theatre Changing Lives
Outta Theatre exists to provide creative, cutting edge performance and educational experiences that change lives.
About Outta Theatre
We offer piano & voice lessons, acting & mime workshops, home school Music Adventures, summer camps, as well as Kids & Teen Theatre programs with regular performances. Outta Theatre provides practical training combined with performance experience in a safe, creative, learning environment. Instead of learning technique in a standard class setting or auditioning to be on stage for a specific production, the Outta Theatre experience combines the benefits of both worlds. Our programs create customized productions to enable everyone to get a part. Each student will enjoy the opportunity to develop their skills and confidence in the spotlight, and experience the energy of a live audience. Outta Theatre's versatility enables us to produce plays, variety shows, mimedramas, Cabarets, Murder Mysteries, and more!

In 2009, Angie moved to East Hartford, CT, where she performed in the premiere of Lights Up Productions’ new musical, Lost in Vegas. During her stay in Connecticut, she offered classes and workshops in the Hartford area through various organizations. She also performed as a solo mime artist for various events and street festivals. In the summer of 2012, Angie returned to Hartford to serve for the third year as assistant director and mime teacher for the Summer Musical Theater Intensive at the University of Hartford. The following December, she performed in the Barrow Civic Theatre's production of Miracle on 34th Street in Franklin, PA.

Other local experiences include teaching Kids Theatre for the Grove City Art & Theatre Summer Camp and teaching drama classes at the Alle-Kiski Music Day camp in New Kensington.
