Ms. Moore received a BA in theatre from Vassar College and an MA in drama therapy from NYU, where she subsequently served as an associate clinical professor of drama therapy for six years.

The fall program, “Acting for the Theatre,” began in September and offered a full immersion into acting technique. The senior group (ages 11-16) prepared this production of “It’s a Wonderful Life,” the stage version of the American film classic. The junior group (ages 8-10) performs alongside their senior counterparts in the ensemble.
