think & wonder & dream
Oh the thinks you can think!
Introducing the world of theatre to young people is one of my greatest joys. I dip my toes in a lot of different waters when it comes to being a theatre practitioner, but working in children's theatre is the place where I find that I can use the fullness of my abilities. Drama is not only chock full of fun, play, and entertainment- but a medium where discipline, grit, empathy, and emotional intelligence can be nourished in the hearts and minds of youth. It's often said that "character is caught, not taught"- but I believe an equally true axiom is "playing a character builds character."
