25 + years working as a theatre artist-in-residence with schools in SC, NC, FL and LA for the past 12 years, 65-75 schools per year. Also 28 years working in SC schools as a classroom teacher (10 years as a high school English and Drama teacher and 18 years as an elementary and high school principal).Yes, I’m getting on up there. LOL
BA, Wofford College (English)
MEd., University of South Carolina (Ed Admin)
MA, University of South Carolina (Theatre with an emphasis in directing)
My five-day residencies culminate in a full-scale production (Shakespearean or Musical).All production costs: sets, costumes, royalties, music… are included in the residency fee.
I usually work in conjunction with my wife, Dorothy Martin, who is also on the roster.
