Sydney Berk is a NYC based Theater Artist and a proud company member of Catskill Mountain Shakespeare. She is a professional actor and director trained at LAMDA where she studied Classical Acting for the Professional Theatre. You may recognize her from CMS’ production of “Twelfth Night”  last summer where she portrayed Sir Andrew Aguecheek. 


Participants are invited to stay for pizza and a free performance of CMS’ “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” at 7:30pm.

A graduate of SUNY Fredonia and long-time Western New Yorker, she loves sharing theater with people of all ages as teacher, actor, writer, improviser, producer and managing director of the company Torn Space Theater.
