Hello! I'm Claire Tyers, a New York based Actor with an MFA in Acting from The New School For Drama and a recurring role on TV series SEARCH PARTY on HBO/max. I am a Shakespearean Actor, Teacher and Coach. I have created and performed three One-Woman adaptations of Shakespeare plays, playing up 8 characters in one show, for Festivals and Theaters in NYC. Upon request from other teachers in NYC including Casting Director of Playwrights Horizons, Alaine Alldaffer, and Actor/Teacher Emilee Dupre of Broadway Theatre Project, I have been teaching Shakespeare to teenagers. With Stag & Lion Shakespeare Co. Upper West Side I've played Rosalind, Ophelia, Puck and Viola. I am a storyteller! What is the story?--this is where I begin my work. I am eager to work with anyone looking to dig out the story and connect to their character! Acting is personal, but it is also all about using your imagination. And these two factors are a use focus in the work that I do--how personal can you get and how free can you be with your imagination? These are both vulnerable places to play, but they also the most important because somewhere between YOU and your IMAGINATION is the CHARACTER and therefore the STORY. And storytelling is freaking fun! On this site working with me is free!
