Instructor Mara Flynn holds a BFA in theater from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts and is co-director at Acting Out Productions in Newburyport, MA where she teaches improv based theater classes for students ages 6-18. In the summers she runs performance workshops where students create, write and perform an original play in one week. She also teaches workshops at the Tannery Arts Camp and Theater in the Open. As a singer-songwriter, Mara released two albums as “Milksop Holly” (1999 and 2000 on Shimmy Disc). A decade later, Burst and Bloom Records released her debut solo album, “Small as a Heartbeat” (2011) and her follow-up, “Wide Open” (2013). Her latest record, “Good Hands” was released in November 2016. As a teacher, student and practitioner of theater and music, she has come to learn that these arts are powerful lenses through which we can deepen our sense of community, self-awareness and empathy.
