Dr. Rebecca Johannsen was mercilessly pushed into acting classes by her mother at the age of seven in order to cure her of her shyness. She became addicted. Rebecca studied acting at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Los Angeles, before earning a B.A. in anthropology from UC Santa Cruz. She holds a Master's in Theatre from San Diego State University, where she met her fellow collaborators that would form Stone Soup Theatre Company, one of San Diego's most critically acclaimed theatre companies.She went on to complete her Ph.D. in theatre from the joint doctoral program at UC Irvine and UC San Diego.
Never content with only one career, Rebecca regularly divides her time between producing theatre in California and New York City (where she currently resides), teaching theatre history and dramatic literature (she has been on faculty at CSU Northridge, UC Irvine and MiraCosta College and currently is an adjunct faculty member at Tisch School of the Arts at NYU), and working with executives to improve their communication skills . She does occasionally like to get on the stage (or in front of the camera) and act from time to time and directing has become a new obsession.
