SLP'S Youth/Education Director

Amber Ryan developed a love for the performing arts at an early age and believes magic happens in the theater.  As an actor, Amber has worked on Theater, TV, Film, Industrial and both local and national Commercial projects. For the past 10 years Amber has worked with kids ages 3-18 developing and teaching acting techniques and directing youth theater productions. 

Her directing credits include:  Guys and Dolls Jr, Selfie, 15 Reasons Not to be in a Play, Big Bad, Charlotte’s Web, and The Adventures of Rose Red: Snow White's Less Famous Sister (2020  AriZoni Directing Nomination) One of her biggest achievements has been to create and develop an after-school theater program for a local charter school.  In 2019, this program inducted 9 students into their newly-chartered International Thespian Society Troupe.  The troupe went on to compete at the Arizona Thespian Festival, and came in 3rd in the state. 

Amber is excited to have found a home at Stage Left Productions.  She has big goals to expand the SLP Jr program, grow the Home School Theater Program, and, to launch a community outreach program.  Stay tuned to learn more about how this new program will bring together youth performers, local actors and senior members of the community in a unique and powerful way.   

“Working with young actors is a true passion,” says Amber.  “I love seeing them grow in their acting techniques, but more importantly, I love seeing them grow in their self-confidence.  They are building qualities that will benefit them in every aspect of their lives!  That is where the true magic happens.”
