Darlene graduated from UMass with a BA in Education. She has been the Co-Director and Disabilities Specialist for Theatre Adventure since 2004. She works side by side with Laura Lawson Tucker to develop curriculum and to produce shows that meet the needs of the participating troupe members. Finding creative and expressive ways to address and highlight each individual in the program brings out Darlene’s passion for theatre. The success of the past 15 years of Theatre Adventure has confirmed her ideas about creating an environment where troupe members of all abilities can find their unique voice, express their talents, and have a chance to belong to and work with a group to learn together and accomplish greatness!
