I had her for costume design last year. She is a really sweet and lenient teacher. She doesn't teach much but she is very nice and have passion for what she's doing. I would love to have her again.

Your relaxing class if you take acting. Gives you super cool assignments which are somewhat related to acting. Really fun class with friends in tp players.

She lectures every class for at least an hour on things that no one in the class actually cares about. Most of the things that come out of her mouth flatters herself. She expects her students to prioritize her class and reprimands students that study for important test despite the fact that we do nothing in her class. Her curriculum teaches absolutely nothing and she makes us do senseless projects based on whim. Easy A.

I had marinee for advanced acting and she's lovely. she demands respect and lectures for half the class, most the time about life lessons. most classes we sit and do nothing. u should be a good actor for this class. not a lot of learning, just expand

I LOVE THIS WOMAN TO BITS! She's intelligent, truthful, loving, and the closest thing I've ever had to a mother in my life. Thank you, Marinee! She's taught me to spread my wings, and if I did something that wasn't my best, she would tell me so, and push me and push me and push me until I did something that IS up to par with what I can be, then she praised me. It can be hard if you aren't used to criticism or take it harshly, but she knows what to doing. Doubt is a bad idea. GO TP PLAYERS!

I've never had a teacher that just flat out tells you the truth about life and gives you advice on how to get through. I wish Marinee were my mom because she supports me in what I want to do, not what I'm expected to do like my actual mom. Marinee isn't just a teacher in theatre, she's a mentor on life. I am honored to have had the experience to even meet someone as dedicated, determined, and amazing as Marinee Payne. You should too.

Marinee is no average teacher. She is very original in her teachings. While I understand why some people dislike her, I suggest you give her a second chance. She really means well and would do anything for her students. Despite what some may see as rough edges I just see a kind-hearted person who happens to be too honest for most TP kids to handle.

Marinee is a real character. She’s not afraid to show who she is and voice her opinions. I find sometimes she’s a bit hypocritical.. but I really like the message she teaches people. I advise everyone to show who you are.. even tho inside im hoping ya’ll

Talks during the beginning of class may be tiresome but in exchange for 15 min you basically get a hour to practice scripts and chill Don't get on her bad side
