• Amelia Morse, MA & MFA

    Hello, my name is Amelia. My pronouns are she/her/hers. Here's some information about the to help you get to know me better.
     
    Let's first start with how I even got into acting.
     
    I began acting literally when I was in preschool. I got my first speaking role in a preschool play about The Little Red Hen. (I was the Gossiping Goose.) It when I was 11 years old when I got cast as the lead in my 5th grade play. That's when I got "bit by the bug."
     
    It was then I knew I wanted to be an Actor.
     
    However, I really didn't get an opportunity to know more about the craft of acting until college. All I knew up until that point was that I had this deep desire to want to become an Actor.
     
    It's never been because I have a desire to be famous. It's because I love to tell a good story. I enjoy having an audience attention to help them escape from the world and be entertained and educated at the same time. Hence why teaching acting is something I love to do also.
     
    I got my first opportunity to teach Acting to non-Theatre majors for four years at the University of Southern Indiana. It was there that I not only cut my teeth, but learned how to teach people who had an interested in the craft, but didn't necessarily want to be an Actor. It taught me a lot and helped to develop systems I still use to this day. Without realizing it at the time, I was developing my own consent based, informative system for Actors.
     
    I didn't wan to just pick random monologues and scenes for my students. I wanted them to have a say in what they did too. I developed my own 'Monologue Wish List' system which I've continued to flesh out over the years as I've continued to learn and grow as an Actor and as an Educator.
     
    I bring consent based teaching to all of my classes, coaching, and events. I strongly believe that people do their best work when they are fully informed. Making sure my students and clients feel safe is my top priority. I call them 'Actor Values.'
     
    I continue to take classes on my own time to not only create a brave space at The Morse Actors Studio for all that work with me. I want the Actors that work with me to be able to take those tools with them into other acting spaces.
     
    I currently reside in northern Colorado with her family. I enjoy fishing, hiking, camping, and going to live theatre. I have a love for reading Actor Memoirs, theatre and acting related books, and books about leadership for soloprenuers. You can also always find a play with me wherever I go. I enjoy reading new scripts because I'm also looking to add new repertoire for my current and future acting clients.
     
    For more information please check out my Curriculum Vitae.
