Nancy And Geno Carr –
Co-Directors of Education
We are thrilled and grateful to join the team at San Diego Musical Theatre as Co-Directors of Education. We are career performers, educators and administrators who passionately believe in the importance of providing the highest quality performing arts training with the top working professional artists in the business in a safe, yet challenging class environment. We understand that performing arts education is a lifelong process and we consider it our privilege to design, write and implement curriculum for students ages two and above, which will roll out Fall 2020 in our newly renovated space, fully dedicated to the SDMT Academy. As our new programs are being designed, we will continue the Academy’s tradition of offering amazing workshops, master classes, intensives and camps, as well as offering, for the first time this April, three levels of Spring Break Performance and Technique Camps for students ages five and above. We are looking forward to a long and successful relationship with SDMT and it’s community. We are confident that with the SDMT Academy Classes, Workshops, Pre-Professional Productions, Adult Classes and, of course, the SDMT productions you know and love, you will be able to find everything you need under one roof at SDMT.
