After three great seasons with us, Associate Artistic Director, Derek Czaplewski is stepping down to pursue other projects. His presence in our office will be missed on Monday morning.
Derek came to us from HealthWorks Theatre, and brought that company's passion for health education with him. To teach K-5 audiences about fitness and nutrition, he created Making Healthy Choices; he even facilitated its premier performance. He continued the spirit of HealthWorks Theatre by creating Aware Individuals to promote HIV/AIDS awareness in high schools. These programs expanded Imagination Theater's mission and provided schools with powerful tools to provoke vital conversations.
Outside of Imagination Theater, Derek has acted and directed with numerous companies around the city. He can currently be seen as Farmer Brown in Lifeline Theatre's production of Click, Clack, Boo! (pictured below).
As always, you can learn more about Making Healthy Choices, Aware Individuals, or any of our other programs at www.imaginationtheater.org.
