Seven and a half years ago, Cassandra and I began imagining a traveling children’s theatre: we wrote a play, held table readings, met with knowledgeable colleagues who could advise us, and began laying the foundations for Compass Creative Dramatics.
The following summer, we hosted our first series of performance programs with students in Illinois, Indiana, and Chicago.
Fast forward to 2019, and we’ve held programs in 50+ communities in 18 states. We’ve served children and their families from Texas to Minnesota to Florida to Maine.
I have been, and will always be, proud of the work that we have accomplished in just seven years. And today, I’m proud to move on and leave Compass Creative Dramatics in Cassandra’s hands. Cassandra’s passion, dedication, and perception will continue to drive the Compass Creative Dramatics team forward, as she has ably done for all of us over the last seven years. Compass Creative Dramatics and our relationships with our communities across the country will continue to flourish under her leadership.
Over the first few weeks of 2020, Macy will be introducing you to each of the team members. Keep your eyes on our blog and social media for interviews and photos! In the meantime, you can check out the team’s bios on our staff page.
And I might still show up here and there as a guest blogger or a substitute teacher. Who knows? ;)
I’m officially hanging up my Compass hat today, but it’s my birthday on Friday and this year, for my birthday, I want you to meet someone.
So hang tight--I’ll be posting one last time on Friday with an introduction I want to be sure you see.
After that, I’m onto the next adventure. (eek!)
I'll miss Compass and all of you! Meeting our students and their families has been an incredible joy over the last seven years. If you want to keep up with me, you can find me at www.instagram.com/borrowedcats
