STAFF & STUDENTS
We love our kids!
Stars on Stage Kids was founded by people who are specialists in theater with background and passions for teaching kids the skills they need for a full, active life.
Sasha Friedman has a long background in early childood education and theatre, with more than 20 years of experience. She holds a BA in Theatre from the University of Georgia and and Early Childhood Certification from Mercer University.
Sasha has been involved in many productions over the years throughout the Atlanta area ranging from stage productions to independent film. She herself developed her love for acting as a child, beginning with her first production in a school performance of Oliver.
Now, Sasha is thrilled to be able to combine her love for teaching children and theatre through Stars on Stage Kids.
“Theatre was an instrumental part of my life and helped me tremendously in so many aspects of my life. It’s a life-long passion and I am so excited to be able to provide that same opportunity to more children through these programs.
Kirsten Krehbiel hails from Kansas where her love for acting and caring for children began. After earning a BA in Performing Arts, she moved to Denver and started a daycare with her sister. This led her into teaching English to kids in South Korea for several years. In 2014, Kirsten decided to dive back into acting by moving to Atlanta. Here she took classes with Sketchworks Comedy and has since become a regular in their shows including “The Most Dangerous Game”, “Love, Family Mars”, and “Vape the Musical”. Other shows Kirsten has been a part of include: “Picnic” with Merely Players Presents, “Law of Attraction” her first full feature rom-com, and “You’ve Got This” – her own original content videos.
It was through Sketchworks that she got to combine her love for acting and childcare for the first time. She helped coach and direct Sketchworks Kids Camps in 2018 and 2019, and is returning this summer as well. Later in 2020 Kirsten is excited to begin coaching with The Actors Scene.
Nothing, in Kirsten’s mind, can describe the joy of seeing those kids opening up through acting exercises and discover their own artistic talents and abilities on stage. She can’t wait to see the growth and joy from each of the Stars on Stage!
