Artist of the Month
Congratulations to Cassidy Crown Confer, NTPA’s Artist of the Month for February!
Cassidy has been a director with NTPA since 2004. While the number of shows she has directed her has grown too large to count, among her favorites have been the premiere of BRING IT ON, LITTLE WOMEN and last year’s production of JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT. She was honored to be asked to direct NTPA’s 25th Anniversary Production of THE WIZARD OF OZ, featuring Sara Akers as “Aunt Em.”
This month she is bringing SPELLING BEE to life in Plano, and is expecting her second child. She is looking forward to music directing GREASE this summer and directing THE SECRET GARDEN next fall.
She is also an actor herself in DFW. Some of her credits include, “The Sound of Music” with Garland Summer Musicals, “Of Mice and Men” & “Ten Nights in a Barroom” with ICT Mainstage, “Beauty and the Beast” & “Footloose” with Garland Civic, the regional premiere of “Legally Blonde” and “The Boxer” at the Fringe Festival in New York. Cassidy holds a degree in opera performance from Baylor University where she studied abroad & performed in the ruins of Pompeii Italy!
She is so thankful to have NTPA – Plano as her long-lasting extended family. But of course, would not be where she is today without the loving support of her husband and family.
