Sarah Clancy

Sarah began with Open Fields, the sister organization to Brave Arts, during its first main stage production in 2001. She was one of the original counselors of Brave Arts in 2009 and spent her high school summers teaching acting, singing and dance at Klub Kadie along with Kadie, Jordana and Steph Greenfield. Favorite roles with Open Fields include Rizzo in Grease, Day by Day soloist in Godspell and Lily St Regis in Annie and most recently in Bye Bye Birdie when she got to share the stage with former Brave Arts counselor Nick Maletta, the kids of Open Fields (and Brave Arts!) and Tina Greenfield, who in Sarah's opinion stole the show with a hilarious performance as Mae Peterson. Even better she got another chance to be directed by her favorite director and lifelong mentor and friend, Keith Greenfield. She has been lucky enough to split her time between Dover and New York to help Keith direct and choreograph Godspell, Seussical, Bye Bye Birdie and the musical revues along with Dan Snape and Abby Shannon. Her love of theatre and drive to pursue acting as a career stemmed from Open Fields, where she found not only a passion for performing, but a second family. Working with Brave Arts is a chance to share her experience and knowledge of theatre with the next generation, but most importantly it means coming home and getting to spend time with kids of all ages, including some of the original "kids" who have turned into staff members! 

She graduated from Elon University in North Carolina where she was accepted to the BFA Acting program and Isabella Leadership Fellows program. Sarah studied acting, communications and leadership, graduating with honors.

Sarah currently lives in NYC and works as an actress in theater, film, commercial and voiceover work. She recently made her TV debut on Comedy Central and has performed regionally at the B Street Theatre in CA and Cape Rep and Wellfleet Harbors Actor in MA. She starred as Mary in the world premiere of the play Finding Our Voice and has been a proud member of Actor's Equity ever since. Sarah continues to take classes in NYC to grow as an actor and as a teacher, including in improv, on-camera, scene study and Alexander technique. She loves bringing everything new she learns to Brave Arts every summer. And then she takes everything she learned at Brave Arts from her talented co-workers and kids back to NYC!
