Lydia Ellis-Curry - Acting Instructor
Lydia has been performing since the age of five. She completed a rigorous two year Meisner based training program in San Diego before transferring to complete her Bachelor’s of Theatre at Columbia College in Chicago. After graduation, she founded Perspective Charter School’s first ever drama club program and formed an all-female solo performance troupe. Since returning to Portland, she has become an actor and board member of Jester Educational Theatre; a creative nonprofit that brings live musical performances to a wide range of Portland Public schools. Lydia was most recently seen on stage in ‘Fly Guy: a world premiere’. She is now represented by Q6 Talent Agency and has just begun her Portland journey of auditioning for commercials and television shows such as Grimm. Lydia is delighted to begin teaching this fall at Oregon Children’s Theatre and at Vision 8 Studio.
