Amanda Goodyear has that special "it" quality
by: Donna Bailey

I have attended various performances of Amanda's and all I can say is that she has that something undefineable but special that certain performers have when they connect with the audience. From bawdy good humor to an ethereal spirit Amanda can do it all.

Working with Amanda Goodyear
by: Maritsa Arteaga

I have known Amanda for few years, and we have worked together on several projects. The first time I saw her perform was on stage, and it was a joy to watch her. I directed her in short film titled, "Return to me", in which she was the lead. We also worked on a scene from, "Lost and Delirious", in which she played the character of Paulie. This character required many levels and character changes. It was a wonderful experience to watch this character come to life. This scene was later presented to my directing class, and it received wonderful feedback from both the class and my instructor. Amanda is driven, talented, and hardworking. It was a pleasure to work with her, and I hope to collaborate with her in the future again.

The joy of working with Amanda
by: Kelly Neher

I must admit I have worked with Amanda on stage several years now, and I can not get over the skill, confidence and comfort she displays on every occasion. When pitted with the most awkward and embarrassing situations she handles everything with poise and grace. She has a dynamic and magnetic personality that has caused me to have several successful performances with her time and time again. Amanda is one of few actresses I prefer to share the stage with. She is humble and graceful. Words can not describe the joys I receive when I get to see Amanda shine with a performance.
