A NOTE FROM OUR ARTISTIC DIRECTOR and CEO
I believe there is something very special about creatives! Some might say they are the heartbeat of the world! Theatre specifically teaches an amazing skill-set that is beneficial to any workplace – communication, commitment, time management, empathy and responsibility are just a few of the qualities that the theatre teaches.
As an educator, I have always been fully committed to not only educating students in the history, and art form known as theatre, but also in how to become a qualified theatre professional, onstage and off. I have a responsibility to instill a love for theatre arts in my students, but maybe more importantly, how to be business men and women in the sometimes cut throat world of the performing arts.
Maya Angelou said “there is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”
My role as a director is to help the performer find the story inside them and pull it out! My philosophy is STRONG and WRONG! Make me big decisions! The rehearsal space is a safe place in which every performer should be comfortable in making decisions, good or bad. Then knowing they have someone to be honest yet loving in the direction that is given! In doing so, we are teaching them to earn that standing ovation!
