For the past 19 years, Sarah has worked work with Nebraska Shakespeare as a director, actor, and educator. During her tenure with NS (which formally ends in 2020), she acted in and directed in countless shows. In 2016, Sarah founded an all-female production program, “Juno’s Swans,” which produced readings of The Taming of the Shrew, Richard 3, and Julius Caesar. Through her work with Juno’s Swans, Sarah has explored gender performance using creative character/movement development techniques, unlocking a personal understanding of gender performance and how our current culture has shaped and defined gender roles in society.
She is passionate about challenging previous assumptions of Shakespeare and Gender Performance, expanding perception and reception of performance on and off stage. She has acted for Utah Shakespeare, NTC productions, Folger Library Theatre, The Blue Barn, and The Rose Theatre. Most recently Sarah directed the world premiere of Adaptive Radiation at Denizen Theatre in New Paltz, NY. Sarah has her MA from the University of Northern Colorado and her BA from University of Nebraska at Omaha in Theatre Performance.
Sarah is excited to expand her experience and artistic growth beyond Nebraska Shakespeare and is currently working as a freelance artist and educator throughout the Omaha area and beyond.
