Today we’d like to introduce you to Chelsea Braverman.
Hi Chelsea, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
Braver Players started as a place to house aspiring teen artists who loved performing. Being from an educational background, I felt there was a need to form a place where teens could escape from their lives and work on team building, intrapersonal growth, and confidence while learning theater skills. We eventually grew not only into a musical theater space but also a short film school and a place for dance and acting classes. We also service six elementary schools in Orange County by mounting their school plays.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
The road has not been smooth but it’s been worth every twist and turn. Some of our most recent challenges have been finding a way to stay alive and perform during a global pandemic. Funding is always a challenge since we are a small non for profit as well.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
What sets me apart from others that are in my field of directing and producing for teens and kids theater is my educational background. I have a master’s in education so all our productions are structured like a class. We delve into story, character, background, and we are constantly reflecting on what we are learning.
So, before we go, how can our readers or others connect or collaborate with you? How can they support you?
People can always support by coming to see our live productions and films. As far as collaboration, I am always open to input and ideas. We are very based in that as we have had the same team of teachers for about five years straight.
