Cathy Shambley has taught at the Groundlings Theatre for over 20 years. During those years, she helped develop the Basic, Intermediate Lab and Advance level syllabus, was head of the school, taught all levels, and Directed the Sunday Company twice. She originated the Pre-Basic classes (called Fun Shop) and the WOW (Work Out Workshop) along with the first personal, non-fiction stage show called "Scratch It". Besides being an actress, Cathy also directs, writes, coaches, and has added Executive Chef to her skills. Teaching/Directing at the Groundlings is still one of her favorite ways to learn and spread the comedy love.
