  Natalie Griffith Robichaux
Acting Faculty


Natalie Griffith Robichaux received her BFA in Theatre Performance from the University of Evansville and her M.F.A in Acting from the University of California, San Diego. She has performed in theaters in New York, California, and regional theaters across the country including Lincoln Center Theatre, Baltimore Center Stage, Indiana Repertory, Shakespeare Santa Cruz, and the La Jolla Playhouse. Her study at the Drama Therapy Institute of Los Angeles under Pam Dunne and with MICHA (Michael Chekhov Association) in the psycho-physical approach to acting under master teachers Joanna Merlin, Fern Sloan, Ted Pugh, Ragnar Freidank, as well as Lenard Petit of the Michael Chekhov Acting Studio New York has deeply influenced her work as an artist and instructor. Natalie’s areas of study include acting, movement for the actor, development of the imagination through the body and the creation and support of original solo and group theatre pieces. Recent examples are works for Cultural Conversations for Global Health and the Every 28 Hours Project at Penn State University, and her solo piece Bicycle Face which explores the pathologizing of the feminine. Most recently Natalie taught Acting and Movement for the Actor in the MFA and BFA Theatre Programs at Pennsylvania State University. Natalie’s experiences as an actor, dancer, artist, educator, and mother fill her passion for championing the imagination and creative spirit in others. At UCSD, she will teach undergraduate courses in acting, public speaking, and movement for actors as well as mentor students.
