More About Kimberlee 

Kimberlee is a playwright, teaching artist, and theatre-maker from sunny Southern California, who has taught and created for young people in California, Nebraska, and Hawai'i.  She earned her BA from Cal Poly Pomona in 2013 -- where she had the opportunity to be trained in the classic techniques of Shakespeare,  Chekhov, and Moliere as well as modern fare as well.  In addition to honing her craft as an actor, Kimberlee also spent a fair amount of time around designers and technicians -- both in and out of class, which allowed her to develop a healthy curiosity and passion for the crafts behind the scenes as well.  

After college, she spent a good amount of time auditioning and practicing her craft around Southern California and also worked at Disneyland as a Jungle Cruise Skipper.

All the while, however, always finding amidst opportunities to instruct and help the next generation of young creatives. 

Eventually, she found her way to Omaha, Nebraska where she developed and hone her skills as a teaching artist, actor, and creator at The Rose Theatre.

After two and a half years, she finally found herself on the island O'ahu where she will graduate with a master's degree in playwriting (paying special attention to creating pieces for and with young artists). 

At the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa, she has had the unique pleasure of creating two online adventures (one for and with Pre-K students and one for older audiences), produced two play festivals, and co-helmed two playwriting workshops in her spare time. 

She hopes to further her curiosity for online creation and continue to create with young people for the rest of her life..
