Rebecca Fortner:

The Adams State Theatre Program exposed me to all sides of theatre including stage management, acting, directing, working in the costume shop, and set design.

My experience working in the Writing Studio and my directing experience have an amazing cross over - I see how people grow as writers and as actors.

The Writing Studio is a creative outlet. I take someone else's work, either helping in the Writing Studio or directing a play, and tweak it and present it back out in the world, without changing the integrity.

I help plant ideas in the students' heads to make their work better, in theatre and in writing.
