Hi, I am Sam. Sam I am. I have not tried green eggs, but I do love ham. As a theatermaker and pun lover, I am passionate about making the world a better place through laughter and inclusion.
I believe every single person learns life lessons through improv and theater arts. My mission is to create a place in the spotlight for neurodiverse actors.
When collaborating with me, everyone has a moment to shine and is accepted for their authenticity. So I'll see you on stage. Let's see what happens when we say, "yes, and" in your theater.
Here are some quality people I am lucky enough to know. Thanks for saying nice things about me, friends!
Sam makes acting educational, inclusive, and fun. She always creates an environment that makes me feel safe to express my perspectives and creativity. She has a way of connecting with actors that makes them feel valued and present. Her instructions and feedback during rehearsals have helped me make tremendous progress in my acting. I love acting because of her!
Actress, Mainstage Players
Sam Ginn is the best. She has inspired me to become an actress because she makes it so fun and lights me up with confidence. I would do anything for Sam Ginn.
Artistic Director, New Village Arts Theater
Samantha Ginn is the finest teaching artist I have ever worked with. The personal attention she shares with each student is unmatched. Everyone she works with becomes a better artist, a better human, and HAS FUN!
Author, Radical Inclusion
Sam loves two things fervently: people and theater. She is gifted at passing her craft on to others. Her enthusiasm for including everyone on stage is irresistible.
Really. Ask me anything.
