Oakcrest Theatre Teacher To Star in “The Importance of Being Earnest”

Camille has a B.A. in Journalism and Theatre Studies and an M.F.A. in Acting. In 2014 she received the Award for Excellence in Creativity, Theatre Department, The Ohio State University and a department award for production of her one-act play, Southern Cross the Dog. Camille has trained with the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Stand Up for Shakespeare Program in Stratford-upon-Avon, 2013. She is also trained in and practitioner of the Hunter Heartbeat Method, Shakespeare drama intervention designed for children on the autism spectrum. In addition to teaching theatre and public speaking classes at Oakcrest, Camille directs the school’s annual Middle and Upper School productions.
