Kathleen F. Conlin
Productions of A Midsummer Night's Dream and The Tempest at Utah and Hamlet (at the Krannert Center in Illinois) have showcased her work specifically in collaboration with lighting designers and composers. Her collaboration with scenic designer Eric Stone on A Midsummer Night's Dream was chosen for exhibition internationally at the Prague Quadrennial.

award-winning teacher, and dean. Developing new arts technologies,
increasing international networks, and bridging the intellectual agenda
of the campus with innovation in the arts practice have been hallmarks
of her accomplishments. Currently she is the Barnard Hewitt Professor
of Theatre and Director in Residence at the University of Illinois and
the Associate Artistic Director/Casting Director for the Utah
Shakespearean Festival. A member of the Society of Stage Directors and
Choreographers, she has been installed as a Fellow of the American
