We are proud and excited to announce that new leadership has been named for the Granbury Theatre Academy, a division of Granbury Theatre Company which operates the historic Granbury Opera House in downtown Granbury.
Taylor Ray Donaldson is the new administrative director, while Domanick Anton Hubbard is the creative director.
Donaldson is completing a summer internship at the Opera House, having stage managed both the GTC musicals “South Pacific” and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. He has previously worked for Ardmore Little Theatre, “The Wizard of Oz” national tour, “Fuerza Bruta” (Off-Broadway), The Oklahoma Shakespearean Festival, and Six Flags Over Texas.
In addition to his work for the academy, Domanick Hubbard is the GTC resident choreographer, having worked on “Shrek: The Musical” (while also starring as Donkey), “9 to 5: The Musical,” and “Meet Me in St. Louis.” He recently made his directorial debut with GTC’s “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” Hubbard’s theatrical credits include “In the Heights” at Austin’s ZACH Theatre and Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma as well as “Jesus Christ Superstar” and “West Side Story” at Casa Mañana in Fort Worth.
Both Donaldson and Hubbard are graduates of Southeastern Oklahoma State University.
“We are ecstatic to have these two young men leading our theatre academy,” commented GTC board president Micky Shearon. “Taylor and Dom are both enthusiastic about taking on this program and about educating students about all the facets of theatre production.”
The academy is not just for children and youth, as there are also programs for adults. Semster-long courses as well as specialized masterclasses are offered for acting, voice, dance, and technical theatre. A summer camp leads to a children’s musical such as past productions of “Alice in Wonderland Jr.” and “Seussical the Musical Jr.” Several students also audition and perform in mainstage productions.
All of our Academy classes are taught by industry professionals.
