James Farmer

Sunset High School

As a theatre teacher with an acting/directing background looking to beef up my technical chops, this institute provided the exact professional development opportunity that I’ve been looking for. I was very impressed with the facility and the level of instruction. I will definitely participate in any and all future courses.
