Head Kindergarten teacher

Kristin Sgarro has been a teaching and performing artist in New York City since 2010. She started out in the greater Philadelphia area as a musical director and accompanist at Muhlenberg College for every children's show, fundraiser cabaret, and studio production imaginable (including; Assassins, The Last Five Years, A Year with Frog and Toad and Schoolhouse Rock: Live!), as well as for Upper Darby Summer Stage in their children's theater program and their production of Stephen Schwartz's Captain Louie. While at Muhlenberg, she also spent a great deal of time arranging, teaching, and performing a cappella music. She has since brought these talents to New York, having musically directed a number of New York Fringe Festival shows, including Everyday Inferno's Iphigenia Among the Taurians and Dark Horse's Fate, Fury, and Musical Theater, (where she provided a suitable silent, piano-playing cameo).

She has been teaching music and acting to students in New York City children's musical theater programs for the last seven years, most notably with ASTEP (Artists Striving to End Poverty) via the International Rescue Committee at their Refugee Youth Summer Academy, CUNY Hunter Elementary School, the YMCA of the Upper West Side, and Wingspan Performing Arts.
