Andrew Shane Walters

Andrew has been a musician for more than half his life, predominantly as a guitar player while also playing percussion, piano, and french horn at an early age. All of this music developed a strong affinity for songwriting. This passion lead Andrew into musical groups that did a great deal of non-union touring all over the states, Canada, and Europe. After consistently touring for six years Andrew decided to pursue another passion developed in high school, acting. In 2012, he began studying theatre and more recently graduated (2017) from UCSD with a B.A. in Theatre. Since graduation Andrew has began to develop himself as a local artist and theatre practitioner. He has been a part of several local theaters including: OnStage Playhouse, Coronado Playhouse, the Lyceum, and the OB Playhouse. He has been with CYT since 2016 and couldn't be more excited to continuing teaching and learning!


Samantha Occhino

Hi! I've been with CYT since January 2017 and I love it! I recently just graduated from UCSD majoring in Theatre Arts where I was able to direct 3 of my own productions and assistant direct on one graduate department show. I've worked with multiple theatre programs for kids in the past and I've always enjoyed it, so working as a Teaching Artist for CYT is an absolute blast!
