I am so glad you are here!
My name is Amelia Sciandra. I graduated in 2016 with Distinction with my MFA in Acting (The British Tradition) from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire in Birmingham, England. I also hold BAs in Dramatic Art and Spanish from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
I currently split time between Durham, North Carolina and Charleston, South Carolina while I await confirmation on my visa to return to the United Kingdom to live with my husband in London.
Alongside acting I also direct and teach. In 2017 I taught at Durham Academy in North Carolina, one semester of Spanish and one semester of Drama, during which I directed three shows for students.
I have written one full-length play entitled My Friend Is A Playwright, which I am looking to submit to festivals once it has undergone more editing. I am currently writing a play I’m very excited about that is a different take on Achilles’ reasons for fighting in the Trojan War. I would love to discuss these with you, and provide you a reader’s copy, should you be interested.
Should you need a designer for web content, posters, marketing materials and/or publicity blurbs, I enjoy doing that on the side as well and would be glad to help make your event/website/storefront shine. You can view my Design Portfolio here.
I also have spent some time writing theatre reviews. You can find my work here, under the pseudonym Mary Moncrieff.
I dearly love to laugh and I love the theatre more than most people like to eat. I love to travel, read, and get very invested in TV and movie characters.
