Whose 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 7 years running the DPAC program in Durango, Co--along side Denise Hagemeister, the original founder of DPAC. Prior to that she directed for Hollywood Kids Academy in Las Vegas NV. Teaching for the last 17 years, Shea has 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 digging in the dirt, or coloring with her 5 little girls and husband. She also has an extreme obsession with making cupcakes, rainbow sprinkles, and floating on a river or lake.
Her love of children and helping them discover themselves in the arts is the biggest reason she sacrifices many nights to endless rehearsals.
