Teaching Artist Experience:
Educational Outreach Coordinator –Prenzie Players
I facilitate the public performances post –show talk backs that take place with the cast from a particular show. I introduce the cast and take questions from the audience for a period of 10 – 15 minutes depending on the production. I work to coordinate workshops, guest artist appearances and implemented “college night”, as well as a number of community outreach events.
