She was the head of the theatre department for a small private school in Campbell for 15 years where she directed the class plays and developed and ran an after school theatre program and a Summer Arts camp.
She joined the team at Starting Arts in 2011 and couldn’t feel luckier to be amongst such a creative team of artists and educators. At Starting Arts Adrienne is a Production Manager for over 25 different productions as well as Directing eight in school shows per season. She directs the SA Studios musicals and comedy productions each year too, and she teaches during school theatre classes in Sunnyvale and Moreland School District. She loves doing it all and her goal in life is to help bring out confidence and courage in her students, encouraging them to take risks and pride in their work. Theatre has been her way of creating joy around her throughout her life and she feels lucky to be able to bring arts education back into our community!
