Acting Out Theatre Company

Educational Theatre Programming Serving Boulder County

Acting Out Theatre Company is an organization that brings educational theatre programming to Boulder County through the use of arts integration for ECE-12, after-school programs and Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA). Acting Out uses theatre not only as a form of creative expression, but also as means to help young people acquire literacy skills, express emotions, learn the value of collaboration, find their voice and gain confidence.

Meet the Director of Education

Emily Rebecca Norman

Emily's first monologue "Sick," by Shel Silverstein, won her a spot in the Chameleon Drama Club at age seven. She has been involved with theatre ever since. 

As an adult, Emily found her calling when she combined her love of theatre with her passion for teaching. To develop her skills as a Teaching Artist, Emily pursued her master's degree in Educational Theatre in Colleges and Communities from New York University. While at NYU, she completed a certification program at Shakespeare’s Globe in London, and studied Community-Engaged Theatre in Ireland. Emily returned to Boulder, the place she's called home for the last nine years, to put her education to use in her own communities. 

Most recently, Emily worked as a Teaching Artist for the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, as a director for KidStage as well as a joker/facilitator for Mirror Image Arts, a bullying prevention program that is based in Theatre of the Oppressed.

Emily's favorite shows to direct have been Cloud Tectonics, School House Rock LIVE!, and Betrayal. As an actor, Emily's roles have include Sarah in Beau Jest, Ismene in Antigone, and Frostbite in The Snow Queen.
