Director of Theatre Arts
In addition to teaching English and communications courses, Professor Tamara McGinnis has directed theatre at Corban since 1990, producing shows ranging from Shakespeare’s Macbeth to Meredith’s The Music Man. In that time, she has gathered a group of loyal volunteers who help to ensure quality productions each year.
In addition to directing and producing Corban shows, McGinnis frequently presents drama seminars, directs a summer children’s theatre camp at Corban, and heads a theatre patron group.
McGinnis is the mother of two amazing daughters and the wife of a gifted videographer.
When asked why she invests at Corban University, McGinnis says, “I enjoy my job teaching literature and directing theatre, as it pays me to do the things I love: read, teach, discuss the intersection of the arts and Christianity, and connect with students.”
Cast & Crew
Students from all majors get involved in Corban Theatre productions, collaborating both on-stage and behind-the-scenes to create wonderful productions.
Many Corban alumni who were active in theatre are now teaching theatre in schools, directing drama groups in churches, writing scripts for church and community projects, and acting in theatre troops, both amateur and professional.
