Hello parents and students!
I’m very excited to meet and learn more about all of you. Let me introduce myself and give you a little bit of my background.
My name is Noel Britton and I have been teaching acting, dance, and voice to children, teens, adults, and seniors for the last 20 years as well as directing and choreographing for various award winning children, teen, and high school theatre programs in the Los Angeles area.
I studied acting at New York University, Tisch School of the Arts, Circle in the Square Acting Studio and am currently completing my Masters degree in Theatre from CSUN. I have also been working professionally as an award winning Director, Choreographer, and Actor since 1995.
My directorial and choreography credits include:
|The All Night Strut||NAACP Theatre Award for Best Director, Artistic Director Achievement Award for Best Direction, Choreography, Ensemble and Musical Production|
|The World Goes Round||Los Angeles Stage Scene Award for Best Choreography in a Cabaret, LA Times Critics Pick, 100% Sweet from Bitter Lemons|

My regional acting credits include Terry Randall in Stage Door, Catherine Sloper in The Heiress (nominated alongside Debbie Reynolds for Best Actress by the Valley Theatre Guild…and won!), Gladys in Pajama Game, Adelaide in Guys and Dolls, Eva Peron and Mary Magdalene in the Andrew Lloyd Webber revue Music of the Night, and Diana in A Chorus Line. I have been a featured singer for Pacific Symphony Orchestra’s Benefit Gala starring Davis Gaines as well as lead singer for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines. I am also proud to have logged over 500 performances of The American Girl Revue Show at The American Girl Store in Los Angeles before the Theatre closing in 2008.
Alongside my work in Theatre, I have also been fortunate enough to serve as a Music Therapist for the elderly who live in convalescent, skilled nursing, and Alzheimer patient facilities.
Last and most importantly, I am very excited to be teaching at Champs Charter High School for the Arts and I look forward to an amazing year!
