Caitlin's Coaching

~Professionally Experienced: I've taught acting for over 7 years, and been on the board of directors with such reputable companies such as The Castro Valley Dramatic Arts Academy and Oregon Conservatory of Performing Arts.

~Process-Based Approach: I focus on where you are in your process, and I adjust my teaching style based on your needs. I'm interested in who you are, and how you connect to the work!

~Coaching For All Ages: I've worked with kids as young as 2 and adults 60 and up. I'm happy to work with any and all ages!

Caitlin Lushington is Co-Artistic Director of the Enso Theatre Ensemble (, as well as an instructor and Board Member at the Oregon Conservatory of Performing Arts. Sometimes she works too hard, sometimes she forgets things, but she strives to put the car keys back in the same place every time. She drinks tea every morning from her TARDIS mug and "Mr. Tea" diffuser. She loves the morning and wishes she had a photographic memory, so she could remember the names of every person she meets.

Caitlin received her B.A. in Drama from the University of California, Irvine, where she was the first student to achieve honors in both acting and directing. She directed and performed in over 20 shows and was the Artistic Director of Pipeline (The Undergraduate Theatre Society) during her four years at UCI. She has been a regular teaching artist with the Oregon Conservatory of Performing Arts and the Castro Valley Dramatic Arts Academy since 2010. In 2013 Caitlin was the assistant director for the regional premiere of Peter and the Starcatcher and King John at the Utah Shakespeare Festival. As an actress Caitlin was recently seen with the Ashland New Plays Festival, the Randall Theater and as Kayleen in "Gruesome Playground Injuries." Most recently, she managed the Kickstarter fundraising campaign for her theater company, the Enso Theatre Ensemble. She raised over $5,000 to produce a full production of her adaptation of Jane Austen's "Pride & Prejudice", and to tour the show to Oregon high schools and colleges.

Caitlin is a firm believer in taking time to breathe, and the motto, "One day at a time."
