Kirsten Suwabe

Kirsten is a Christian actress, artist, singer, model, and DJ in Southern California. She
has been acting and singing since the age of seven. Kirsten has acted in Classical Theater
since 2006 with Alethia Christian Theater, and trained with AMTC (Actors, Models, and
Talent for Christ) since 2013, with coaching from celebrity acting coach Andrew Benne and
Irene Muzzy since 2014. Kirsten has trained in Costume Design and Stage Makeup since
2012. Kirsten lives, breathes, and eats theater and had realized her ultimate goal to own
her very own theater in 2016 with the opening production of J.M. Barrie’s “Peter Pan”.
To quote the late and great Walt Disney “All the adversity I’ve had in my life, all my
troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me… You may not realize it when it happens, but
a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.”


Without theater Kirsten would be lost, after all “all the world’s a stage, and all the men and
women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances.” – William Shakespeare.
Acting is Kirsten’s passion. She been in over 25 shows in her life time; and her family has
been there to support her at every single performance. It is Kirsten’s dream to own her
very own theater. Now you may say “Wow! She dreams big!” But to quote Walt Disney
again “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” “If you can
dream it, you can do it.” and “It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.”
