Amanda Cantrell joins the Horizon team after five years in Alaska. She was most recently the Executive Director of Communications at an entertainment distribution company in Anchorage, but longed to go back into theatre. A past teacher for almost 10 years in Alaska, as well as her home state of Texas, Amanda has worked in all areas of the arts. In addition to teaching theatre, she previously worked for the Dallas Theater Center and the Dallas Children’s Theatre. Not content to do administration only, Amanda is also an actor, designer and director. Some of her favorite theatres to artistically work with include the Dallas Children’s Theatre, MBS Productions, Anchorage Community Theatre, and RKP Productions, to name a few. She holds an Associates in Acting from KD Conservatory, a B.S in Theatre, as well as a B.S. in Communications from Texas A&M-Commerce, and a M.S. in Human Relations and Business from Amberton University. One day, she aspires to finish the educational trek by receiving a PhD.
