Hey there. I'm Griffin.

From courageous to kind, ridiculous to downright strange—I’m super familiar with the nooks and crannies of comedy and tragedy. My true versatility has made me an excellent collaborator across mediums and genres. I’m your smiley, affable redhead with a charismatic intensity. I love soul-searching conversations backstage and making people laugh on set. Some of my favorite credits include playing both Posthumus and Cloten in Cymbeline, acting alongside my uber-talented wife Dana Kreitz on the thriller Hazel, and creating internet sensation Yawn Yawnson.

Got a project or an idea? Reach out and let’s chat.


Hamlet (Delaware Shakespeare) "Stanton-Ameisen essays one of the most challenging roles in the canon with visceral energy, elfin wit and verbal bravado. This Hamlet is not a thoughtful philosopher pondering his destiny; he's a confused young man facing a world controlled by power and lust that he cannot comprehend" (Delaware News Journal).

Gint (Egopo Classic Theatre) "Griffin Stanton-Ameisen is terrific as Gint's town rival and later tormentor as the ruthless king of the pig people" (Huffington Post).

Romeo and Juliet (Commonwealth Classic Theatre Company) "Strong veteran actors play key roles [...] Griffin Stanton-Ameisen nails Mercutio’s “Queen Mab” speech and puckish behavior, yet also squares off dramatically with Christopher G. Anthony’s taciturn Tybalt" (

The (curious case of the) Watson Intelligence (Azuka Theatre) "it is Griffin Stanton-Ameisen that steals the show with his takes on Watson: the emotionless computer eager to aid his human companion, the hippie-ish IT specialist turned spy, the intelligent but overshadowed sidekick to Sherlock, and the mere assistant to one of the greatest inventors of our time. Watson may only be seen as the support for bigger and greater people but Ameisen‘s keen portrayal of these characters is enthralling" (Geekadelphia)

Penelope (Inis Nua Theatre) "The best lines are reserved for the laconic Burns (“people carry around little pedestals of differing sizes and half-talk to each other and lie to themselves and other that they are part of a community”). Stanton-Ameison seizes this opportunity with a resounding coda that summarizes the plays themes: Despite its threats, love is saved" (
