Our Mission

NeverLess's focus is to elevate the quality of performance by high school artists; actors and technicians alike. We do this by giving students pieces that are not edited or watered down, expecting  professional work and by creating a true company community so all members feel included in the creative process . This process helps to cultivate strong, adaptive artists and give participants an opportunity to do professional work in a supportive educational environment. We are excited to give students these opportunities to push past what they think they can accomplish, to be NeverLess than what they were before and discover the artist they have inside themselves.

Our Team

When she isn't teaching, she is creating.  A local stage manager, actor and prop designer her most recent works include Assistant Stage Manager for Sasquache Theatre's The Full Monty, Prop Design for Ignite Theatre's American Idiot, with Open Stage Theatre as Featured Ensemble in RENT and as Zerbinette in Scapin, and as Stage Manager for the world premier of Gifted with The Edge Theatre Company.

In the little free time she has left she loves pokehunting/walking with her little sistor (and yes she spelled that correctly), her brother in law and her nephews (one furry, one not ), escaping rooms and geocaching while scheming how to win the Amazing Race with her CBO and snuggling with her two furry feline children at her condo in Lowry
