The heart of the Dust Bowl Motel project is its volunteers. Over the next few weeks we are going to highlight some of the people who have given so much of their time and talent to produce a show that will be entertaining and leave you with a sense that it was an evening well spent at the theatre.
This week we highlight the talents of Maureen V. McIntrye. Ms. McIntyre serves as our Creative Consultant and brings a long resume of amazing accomplishments in theatrical arts to our project. Ms MyIntyre was instrumental in assisting in some of the first readings of Dust Bowl Motel and has continued to lend her assistance in script analysis and character development.
Ms. McIntrye received her M.F.A. and B.F.A., University of Texas in advanced studies in theatre movement, and acting for film. She has directed professionally and has directing credit for over 90 plays. She was named Texas Educational Theatre Association Educator of the Year for Colleges and Universities in 1993. Ms. McIntyre was named Who's Who among America's Teachers and was awarded Outstanding Leadership for Children in the Arts in Huntsville, Texas in 2000. She has served as a UIL One-Act Play Critic Judge for Texas high schools from 2000 through the present. Ms. McIntryre was a professor of Theatre and Musical Theatre at Sam Houston State University from 1972 until her retirement this year. She is the Lead author of THE YOUTH THEATRE DIRECTOR'S HANDBOOK (J.A.C. Publishing).
Maureen McIntyre has touched the lives of educators and actors from Broadway to small town schools. She is indeed a respected force in the world of theatre and we are blessed to have her as a part of the Dust Bowl Motel team.
