Meet the faculty: Introducing Ashley Kobza!

Ashley Kobza teaches DRAM 103, Acting for the Non-Major, and is the director of the spring production of Almost, Maine.

Ashley Kobza is teaching artist specializing in physical theatre, comedy, and the creation of new works.

She graduated in 2012 with a Master of Fine Arts in Acting and New Work from The Ohio State University. She has also trained extensively with the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford, Dell Arte International in Blue Lake, and both IO and Second City in Chicago.

As teacher Ashley employs power of play and laughter to inspire vulnerability and risk taking in the classroom.  In DRAM 103 students can expect to dive head first into the world of performance including: improvisation, beginning script analysis, performance art, and creating new works both alone and within an ensemble.  

We are lucky to have Ashley on our faculty!
