New Children’s Theatre Program Director Announced

Ali Mahon is thrilled to be joining the wonderful community of the Marblehead Little Theatre. She began her community theatre experience back in the Poconos in Pennsylvania at the Pocono Playhouse where she could be seen doing everything from being on the stage performing to ushering to running the concession stand. From there, she attended Emerson College receiving a B.A. for Theatre Education and later Lesley University where she received her M.Ed. for Integrating the Arts into the Curriculum. For over ten years she has been the middle school drama teacher in Saugus, MA where she teaches sixth-eighth grade students during the day and runs the after school drama club, which regularly has more than 100 members. During the past summer months, Ali has been the Senior Camp Director for the Chestnut Hill School Creative Arts & Sports Program where she and her campers partake in bi-weekly field trips. Along with working in Saugus and Chestnut Hill, Ali helps with the Marblehead organization, Stone and Compass where she travels with students to Bulgaria to help make cross cultural connections. She is looking forward to what the new chapter of her life will bring in the position of Director of the Youth Theatre Program.
