KATIE BECKER COLÓN, DIRECTOR OF EDUCATION

Colón joins the Nebraska Shakespeare team from Albuquerque, NM, where she acted as Director of Education for Duke City Repertory Theatre and created three educational programs: Classrooms Alive!, an educational tour that brings curriculum-based theatre to schools across New Mexico; Imagine Action Conservatory, a two-week summer program; and The Art and Craft of Acting, an adult education program for business professionals and theatre artists. Colón’s work as a teaching artist for the past three seasons of Nebraska Shakespeare’s educational touring program, Shakespeare On Tour, and as guest speaker for the organization’s summer Scholars Forums and Camp Shakespeare programs have allowed her to gain familiarity with Nebraska Shakespeare’s current curriculum, the communities served, and the opportunity to work with thousands of students across Nebraska and Iowa.
