Assistant Professor of Theatre and Design; Technical Director for the Theatre Department

Kimberly Manuel, MFA, teaches a variety of theatre courses ranging from intro courses to advanced technical theatre courses. She has worked in both professional and educational theatre, with many years of teaching experience and over 15 years of professional credits.

Theatre is a collaborative art form, so working with a variety of people has always been an aspect of theatre that has been the most fulfilling for her. For centuries theatre has had to face adversity and a myriad of threats to its survival, but no matter what theatre has survived. She finds that perseverance and ingenuity to be inspirational and what motivates her to be the theatre artist she is today.

I believe that all people are capable of being a creative artist. All it takes is motivation, practice and the willingness to make mistakes. Some of the greatest theatre artists were the ones who failed miserably and multiple times, but they didn’t give up.
