More About Us
Who's running this thing anyways?!
Shea Costa- Director
When you are raised attending rehearsals, tech weeks, and performances- it's only fitting that Shea found her passionate career in helping other children do the same. Shea has spent the last 5 years running the DPAC program here in Spring, TX, prior to that she ran DPAC in it's original birthplace of Durango, Co for 4 years; but was an instructor there for many years before that--along side Denise Hagemeister, the original founder, (and her mother) of DPAC. Prior to that she directed for Hollywood Kids Academy in Las Vegas NV. Shea has directed a collective 22 years in many different roles so naturally, Shea caught the "bug" that was embedded in her mother's blood. She studied Music Education at Colorado State University and Theater Education at the University of Northern Colorado
When she is not teaching theater arts to other children, you can find her at home creating all kinds of shenanigans with her 5 daughters and husband. She also has an extreme obsession with making cupcakes, rainbow sprinkles, and floating on a river or lake.
Shea's passion for helping children find their space in their world through creativity is the reason she sacrifices thousands of hours to rehearsals.
Rachel Spragg-Acting Director
Rachel Spragg is excited to be working with the company that helped her develop her love for performing many years ago. She has been in many productions including, Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors, as Audrey, Private Lives, as Sybil, and professionally in Grease, as Patty Simcox. She studied acting in college and graduated with a degree in Liberal Arts. She is married with 4 adorable baby boys. She enjoys glitter, listening to pop music loudly, and rolos.
Rebekah- House Manager
Rebekah has managed a house since she was married so taking on the DPAC House was no big change for her. She is a mother of five boys that have enjoyed their time in many productions at DPAC. After watching how much her boys have enjoyed DPAC she decided to join in and found her place here as well. She has helped out in many different capacities since starting working here and loves every minute of it. She is the one behind the scenes organizing the office, helping with tickets and anything else her coworkers need, and loves greeting the students as they come in. She is happy to be working with this great group of women and to help all who enter our doors. She is grateful for a family that supports her in this job and helps out with things both here and at home.
