About Tro Shaw

My Bio

I made my theatrical debut at the age of four in the Cal Shakes (then Berkeley Shakes) production of ROMEO & JULIET, starring as the tiniest street urchin. During a final rehearsal, I fooled my own mother into thinking I was terrified by the opening fight, and when she ran down from the back of the house to save me, I informed her, "I'm Acting!" And my lifelong love for the theatre was born.  I began training as a dancer first, and my dance teacher encouraged me to take acting and singing lessons, knowing I wanted to pursue a career as a performing artist.  I attended Carnegie Mellon University, where I received a BFA in Acting, and an appreciation for all aspects of what makes a production successful.  In 2008 I moved to New York City without an agent or an equity card, and within two months I booked my first union gig - Broadway's WEST SIDE STORY playing the tomboy, "Anybodys".  It was a life-changing experience, and one that taught me what it takes to be a full time artist.  In 2010 I decided to try Los Angeles out.  I moved to Hollywood, married a Denver boy, and worked at various theaters on the West Coast as a performer as well as a choreographer and director. In 2017 I was a guest star on NCIS: LA and I was accepted into the Academy for Classical Acting, a graduate program run by the Shakespeare Theatre of DC in partnership with George Washington University.  I recently received my MFA in Classical Acting and am now living in Washington DC with my husband and pooch.
