Ottawa's Premier Acting School

Megan Carty - Acting Instructor 
Megan has worked across Canada as an actor, physical theatre artist, and puppeteer. She fell in love with live performance while attending the Canterbury Arts Drama Program, and then went on to train at Studio 58 in Vancouver as well as One Yellow Rabbit in Calgary. She is the artistic director of multi-award winning local theatre company Cart Before the Horse, whose mandate is to use theatre as a powerful outlet to explore topics we are otherwise afraid to talk about. The only thing Megan loves as much as performing is teaching. With ten years experience as a figure skating coach and five years as a drama educator, Megan is thrilled to be joining the Acting Company team this year! There is no better feeling in the world to her than sparking a theatrical passion in others and seeing them learn how to create, collaborate, and open up onstage.
