Drama Kids Charleston South Owner Sharyl-Sutton-Troiana

Sharyl Sutton-Troiani

Owner & Director

I’m Sharyl Sutton-Troiani, the owner/director. I’m excited to launch this critically acclaimed national children’s acting program in South Carolina. As an experienced Charleston County substitute teacher, former network affiliate news anchor, and previous NYU Tisch School of the Arts and Atlanta Northside High School of the Arts student, I understand the power of positive communication skills, confidence, and teamwork. Drama Kids Charleston South offers award-winning, educational, fun programming using copyrighted skits, theater games and improvisational speech prompts. Our hour-long, weekly classes will elevate creative thinking, improve articulation, and inspire polished social skills. Students will never repeat a lesson, and they can start anytime.
