Danny Higgins Dunn
Though her childhood dream of becoming a magical fairy princess didn't pan out, Mrs. Dunn enjoys a remarkably similar career making the magic of theater.
She began her performing arts career as a child actor in television commercials. She then honed her skills in such diverse jobs as radio DJ, director, high school drama teacher, television game show director, rock and roll roadie, event manager and professional lighting designer. Roll all these skills up into one job and you have a technical director, which she has been since 1997.
While all this was going on, Mrs. Dunn continually indulged in her passion for children's theater and education. She also pursued additional studies at the University of Birmingham (England), The Shakespeare Institute at Stratford-Upon-Avon, England, and The Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Ashland, Ore. Since 1987 she has been teaching students of all ages, ranging from preschoolers to adults.
Mrs. Dunn is a Bay Area native. She currently lives in San Jose with Mr. Dunn and their son, Kezian, class of 2022.
