We are excited to have Alex Kaplan on board with us. Alex was a student at Live Theater Workshop for 7 years. In her last performance at LTW she played Ariel in The Little Mermaid. Alex has studied acting with Anna Risley who was a Saturday Night Live player and she is a student at Tucson High Magnet School where she passionately participates in their theater arts magnet program. In addition to performing at THMS, Alex is a regular cast member at the Roadrunner Community Theater in their Family Series. She looks forward to beginning her journey toward achieving a Bachelors of Fine Arts next year. Alex loves sharing her passion and excitement for theater with our Drama Kids students!
Shannon has her A.A.S. in Theater & Entertainment Technology and her B.A. in Theater from Florida State University, where she was also a member of the Flying High Circus. She has been performing for more than 25 years, and has also worked as a director, choreographer, lighting tech, ground rigger, and teacher. It is very important to her to pass on the passion she has for theater and encourage children to be confident in who they are. She is very excited to be a part of the Drama Kids team and looks forward to working with your amazing kids!”

My name is Darian Holstad. I’m currently attending the UofA to obtain a Bachelors degree in child psychology and absolutely love musicals! I used to act in and direct plays throughout high school, and my passion for theater never quit. My secret obsessions are Disney movies and the Phantom of the Opera.
I am super excited to be a part of the Drama Kids family. I am recently married and have a fine arts degree in Theatre. I have extensive experience working as a professional actress as well as helping out behind the scenes.

My name is Nicolette Siqueiros, although I go by Nikki, I was born and raised in Tucson. I have done volunteer work for my local church teaching Sunday classes as well as managing younger children in daycare during services. I began volunteering and working with children over 6 years ago and I absolutely love teaching children.

I am extremely excited to be a part of the Drama Kids Team.
By day, prior to my Drama Kids classes, I work at the U of A Bookstore and by night I act/sing. I have been immersed in Tucson theater for about 4 years. I am most passionate about theater that revolves around healing, ritual, and community. I am thrilled that I now get to teach Drama Kids students about theater as they teach me patience and creativity.
