Karyl Meyer has been involved in educational and community theatre most of her life. After majoring in theatre and speech (and minoring in math) she spent many years teaching high school (even math on occasion) and directing plays and musicals as well as coaching speech and debate teams. For several years she was on the board of the Colorado Thespian Society and directed university auditions for high school seniors, bringing in 25 university representatives from around the country. She has also directed a variety of productions for community and church groups. Her favorite aspects of play production are the creative and collaborative efforts to bring a piece of literature fully to life for an audience.
