Katherine Danforth – Katherine was introduced to Hubbard Hall during a high school field trip, where she and her fellow students were allowed a glimpse into the 2013 production of Macbeth. That summer, Katherine joined Hubbard Hall’s summer Shakespeare troupe, led by Jeannine Haas, as they toured Twelfth Night. Other theatrical credits at the Hall include Othello, Peter and the Starcatcher, The Farming Plays Project (2017), the 2019 revival of A Box of Monkeys, the 2019 Fellowship Playwriting Festival, All’s Well That Ends Well, and Our Stories (2021). Katherine has directed the Youth Theatre, Teen Theatre, and CCS Drama Club productions of James and the Giant Peach Jr, Spoon River Anthology, And Then There Were None, Cinderella, The Wizard of Oz, Bugsy Malone, Little Women, and Into the Woods. She treasures the hours spent sharing the magic of Hubbard Hall with students and community members, just as the artists inspired her so many years before.
