Drama Teacher - Blythe Kirkwood
Our top-notch faculty in the Fine Arts Department includes two new additions to our staff. Mrs. Blythe Kirkwood is ecstatic to be joining the CCS family as the new Secondary Drama teacher. Mrs. Kirkwood, who holds a BFA in Musical Theatre from Sam Houston State University, most recently served as the Head Theatre Director at Spring High School, and before that served as Theatre Director at Bailey Middle School in Spring ISD. At HITS Theatre, she served as Education Coordinator, teaching musical theatre classes and private voice. She has choreographed numerous musicals and choir pop shows. Mrs. Kirkwood is also an experienced professional actress, having performed with The Texas Repertory Theatre, HITS Theatre at Miller Outdoor Theatre, Theatre Lab Houston, Galveston Island Musicals, and Eichelberger Performing Arts in Hanover, PA. Mrs. Kirkwood will be teaching 6th Grade Musical Theatre, Middle School Drama and Musical Theatre, High School Drama, and she has big plans for the TAPPS One Act Play contest scheduled for early November. Keep your eye on the Drama Department, as Mrs. Kirkwood is excited to build on the foundation laid by her predecessors and take the CCS theatre program to the next level.
