Katherine Daniel, Theatre
Katherine Daniel is the Assistant Theatre Director for Ovation Theatre at Dawson High School. She is very excited to be joing the Ovation Theatre team this year. This is her third year teaching. She graduated from Sam Houston State University with a B.F.A in Theatre and a minor in Secondary Education. She has played many roles in the theatre world both on and off stage since she was a child. Theatre is her first love and being able teach it to students brings her great joy. She believes that in a theatre classroom we are not just teaching theatre skills, but skills students will need for the rest of their lives such as collaboration, analysis, creative problem solving, critical thinking, public speaking, and thought articulation.
"That's the scary thing about theater—it doesn't live on. But that's actually the most beautiful thing about it, too. That's why it's more beautiful than film and certainly more beautiful than television, because it's like life. Real life. Any picture that you take or any video that you make of yourself is not really you, it's only an image that represents the experience you had. In theater, the process of it is the experience. Everyone goes through the process, and everyone has the experience together. It doesn't last—only in people's memories and in their hearts. That's the beauty and sadness of it. But that's life—the beauty and the sadness. And that is why theater is life."
