When she is not onstage, on set, behind a microphone, coaching, taping auditions, or in Deke Anderson’s film class, she can be found either working as a Standardized/Simulated Patient (and Teaching Associate) in the Med Center or sitting in her living room doing some sort of needlework. Shondra & Todd have 2 cats, whom they love and whom terrorize one another.

Shondra has studied and worked with amazing artists, including Stuart and Ann Ostrow, Jerry Bock, Sidney Berger, Deke Anderson, Jim Conlan, Todd Waite, Paul Hope, Jeannette Clift George, Mark York and Shelley Calene-Black. She also has a valid passport.

Current Project:

Shondra is excited to be back as Vera Sanders in Texas Repertory Theatre’s production of SANDERS FAMILY CHRISTMAS, running from December 3rd through December 23rd. You can call the Box Office at (281)583-7573 or log onto

From Texas Rep’s Facebook invite comes this information: “Join us for a toe-tapping bluegrass Christmas filled with humor and nostalgia. Set in 1941 as their eldest son prepares to leave for WWII, the gospel-singing Sanders family returns to a small church in the wildwood to share their stories of warmth and family amidst a rousing collection of Christmas tunes, all done with good humor and filled with the spirit of the season. The sequel for our 2007 summer smash, SMOKE ON THE MOUNTAIN, this installment finds the Sanders clan as musical, quirky, and entertaining as ever. Bring your whole family to SANDERS FAMILY CHRISTMAS, a holiday production that is sure to have you clapping your hands, tapping your feet, and celebrating the pure joy of the Christmas season.”
