Hannah has been working in the theater since she was 8 years old. She began by acting in youth driven productions of Shakespearean comedies. At sixteen, she started directing when she approached an elementary school and offered to direct A Midsummer Night’s Dream for the 2-4 graders to act in. This quickly expanded into her own business which is now called, Youth Shakespeare Company. Ever since then, she has continued to learn, teach and grow by directing children’s shows, teaching youth workshops, acting and designing. She went to Hamline University and graduated with a B.A. in Theater Arts. This marks the 30th Shakespearean production that Hannah has been apart of.
