Mandy Phillips

Mandy Phillips has had a love for all things theatrical from a very young age, and has a strong desire to help instill that same love in the students she teaches. After receiving her B.S. in Theatre Education: K-12 from Appalachian State University, Mandy has taught various acting programs around the WNC area, ranging from week-long summer drama camps for ages 6-12 to extended after school courses for at-risk high school students in need of a creative outlet. By day, she teaches the two-year-old Creative Arts Preschool class at the Asheville Arts Center. When she isn’t teaching, Mandy is busy staying involved with various community theatres around town. She is heavily involved with the Montford Park Players, North Carolina’s Longest Running Shakespeare Festival, where she serves as a board member as well as directing, costuming, and acting in many of their productions. She has also been involved at Asheville Community Theatre as both an actress and a costumer, and has been onstage in the Asheville Arts Center’s community theatre productions. She believes that theatre should focus on building a sense of community, not on being in a spotlight, and she brings this philosophy into the classroom with her.
