Vincent Sagona- Drama Faculty
Vincent Sagona has been a professional actor in theatre and film for 25 years and is the Director of Performing Arts at Professional Children’s School where he has been the drama teacher for 17 years. He earned his MFA at Brooklyn College where he studied with F. Murray Abraham and spent 2 years in advanced scene study with the world renowned acting teacher, Uta Hagen. Through his extensive acting work in the professional theatre, Vincent has honed his craft in numerous productions playing such roles as; Happy in Death of a Salesman, Bottom in A Midsummer Night's Dream, Fr. Flynn in Doubt and Thomas in the critically acclaimed one man show, My Italy Story for which he earned a New Jersey Star Ledger Peter Filichia Best Actor nomination. As a current member of The Writer's Group, a New York based theatre workshop, he has become part of a process by which scripts are tested, reworked and presented on stages across the country. These experiences have enabled him to impart first hand knowledge of the challenges of acting in a variety of settings as well as the realities of being an actor for hire. Vincent has a deep appreciation for the importance of ensemble and, perhaps most importantly, he believes that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
