Michael is joining the Weathervane family following 20 years of teaching college and
university theatre. He holds degrees from Ohio University, The University of Kentucky and
Otterbein College. He was most recently a member of the faculty at The University of Guam. UOG is on the
island of Guam which is a US Territory in the Pacific/Micronesia. Over his 6 years on the
island he taught a wide variety of theatre courses and designed and built numerous shows
including Rashomon, The Cruicible, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Vanya, Sonia, Masha and
Spike and Twelfth Night. He also directed Barefoot in the Park, Proof and two children's
musicals, Polkadots and The True Story of the Big Bad Wolf. Other schools Michael taught at were Westminster College, Huntington University, Ohio University and Lockhaven University. Michael is looking forward to the next chapter of his “life in the arts” here at Weathervane Playhouse and is glad to be back in NE Ohio close to family and friends.
