Meet the Education Department

DONNA GLICK, Director of Education

I arrived in Boston as an MFA student in acting at Boston University. I was an actress for about 10 years and was a founding member of New Repertory Theatre. Throughout this time of my life, I was always teaching, always looking for ways to share my love for theatre with people of all ages. I became a theatre teacher in Weston for two years and during that time learned that the Huntington was beginning an Education Department and hiring an assistant director. Twenty-two years later, as they say, the rest is history. Working at the Huntington has exercised all of my interests in theatre. Besides teaching and directing, I have enjoyed creating education programming — taking an idea, cultivating it, and working hard to make something happen that ultimately goes beyond the original aspirations.

MEG O'BRIEN, Manager of Education Operations

The Huntington's Education Department has always been known as one of the best in the country. With anywhere between 10 and 15 programs and events scheduled in a season, it is our collaborative work with Youth & Police in Partnership (Know the Law!) and our collaboration with the Codman Academy Charter School in Dorchester that are groundbreaking models for arts education, and I am incredibly proud to be a part of each. In a time when the value of arts education is being challenged and questioned, it is imperative that we continue our interaction with these students who are not frequently given any other creative outlet in which to express themselves. Over 1,200 students came to see our record-breaking run of Candide, including 125 Deaf students. It's those opportunities that make our work invaluable, and those moments of learning that prove to me the arts in education simply cannot end.
