BIO: Tami McDonald
Tami McDonald is a recent transplant to the Seattle area and is excited to be a part of Studio East! She holds a BFA in Theatre Education from Utah State University. Even as a teenager she knew teaching theatre was what she wanted to do with her life and she is thrilled that she has been able to do just that! Before moving to Washington, Tami taught middle school theatre full time at the Salt Lake Arts Academy in Utah for five years. There she taught Stage Arts & Design, Acting, Shakespeare, Improv, Playwriting, and directed many shows. A highlight of her teaching career was competing and winning first place sweepstakes in her division of the Utah Shakespeare Competition. She has also spent time working behind the scenes with the Hale Centre Theatre, where Into the Woods, Les Mis, Tarzan & Mary Poppins were just a few of her favorites. Beyond theatre, Tami loves exploring this amazing world, gardening, cooking and having fun!
