Q&A with Hannah – Summer 2022

What is your favorite part about teaching drama?

My favourite part about teaching drama is being in an environment where the things that makes us different are the things that are celebrated and make us wonderful theatre makers.

What is your favorite summer time activity?

Swimming in a lake!

If a play was written about you, what would be the central theme?

Embracing imperfection. And learning how to not forget your keys. 

What are you looking forward to most about being in person for Summer?

I’m most looking forward to building an ensemble together. Collaboration and trust mean something far more when we’re sharing space together.
