Dierdre Staples

Teaching Artist

Hey Y’all! Deidre is a NY based actor/writer originally from Memphis, TN. I was a teaching artist and actor in DC for 6 years where I toured with the National Players, America’s longest running educational touring company. We performed and taught in school, nursing homes, and correctional facilities across the country. Before that I worked in summer camps throughout the Memphis and DC areas. When I was 16, I babysat what seemed like every child in Memphis to save enough money to buy my own laptop!
