Welcome! I am so thrilled to be joining the CRT family in my first year as Education Director! Having grown up in a very small town on the coast of North Carolina, I know first-hand the value of community. I am excited to get to know the community of Creede and continue to implement programming that enriches and enhances the lives of those in and around the area. I am also excited to continue to develop new programming and opportunities for continued growth and mentorship for individuals across the creative spectrum. I am a firm believer that we never stop learning, and I am committed to setting the stage for learners from 1 to 100, from rural to urban areas, and everywhere in between to engage in the Arts.
After last summer’s incredibly successful season, I am eager to jump into Summer 2019! We have an exciting list of Day Camps for students age 3-18. I am also thrilled to bring on Diana Grisanti to write a brand new piece specifically for the participants in The KID Show this season. Diana is an incredibly talented playwright, and I am thrilled for the students to get to know her and her work. I am also very excited to be directing the production this year, as it will give me a chance to really get to know and interact with the awesome students in the program. If you haven’t signed your student up yet, what are you waiting for??
In the fall we will launch into our 36th year of the Young Audience Outreach Tour! We are once again projected to reach over 35,000 students across Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, California, and Oklahoma. The same team who brought you Albert Porter and Seeds of Change is back in full swing to bring to life Best Foot Forward!
One of the reasons I was so eager to take on the position of Education Director, is because I am incredibly inspired by CRT’s educational mission: to strive in bringing excellent arts programming that inspires creativity, challenges, empowers, and nurtures individuals and communities through storytelling.
I can’t wait to get to know you this season! Come play and learn with us!
