Amy first came to TheaCo in 1980 and is a TheaCo Grad of 1982. She came back as a Drama/English teacher (1990-96), leaving theatre and going into full time English and then returning to TheaCo as one of its teachers in 2014. Hughes & McLean produced and directed Unity: 1918, Young Frankenstein: The Musical, and Curtains: The Musical. This year she wants to thank her amazing new TheaCo teaching partner, Matthew Thiessen, whose passion for theatre is matched only by his joyful approach to life. She thanks Darren Hales for the endless hours of work he does for us and our program and all the TheaCo actors and techs for their hard work on Moby Dick! --The Musical.
This is Mr. Thiessen’s first play involving a cetacea, though he is very good at singing Baby Beluga to his two year old daughter. He has had a whale of a time working with these talented actors and crew, and thanks them for their hard work and professionalism. A big THANK YOU to Amy Hughes and Darren Hales for their…everything!
