Paula and her husband, Bob, had a dream to do theatre in Lubbock. They wanted to have jobs where they could do what they love and be a family at the same time. With that vision in mind, they started Hub Theatre Group and Hub Performing Arts School. After a successful summer camp in July 2007, the school was launched and celebrated its first semester with 150 students! Paula's goal is to provide performance training and performance opportunities for talented performers in the South Plains.
Paula has completed all of the coursework for a PhD in Fine Arts at Texas Tech University. She knows the world of talented kids as she performed professionally as a child and has a talented daughter herself. So she understands theatre from all sides, as a performer and director. She has performed multiple times on the Texas Tech stage and directed for Tech, as well as performed and directed with Hub Theatre Group (Hub's sister organization). She has taught theatre to all age groups for over 20 years. She currently teaches theatre to kindergarten through high school at All Saints Episcopal School where her high school one act team are STATE CHAMPIONS! Her vision is to see Hub Performing Arts School develop into a place where students of all ages can come and explore their talents and abilities and realize their fullest potential.
PAULA IS A FREDDIE G AWARD WINNING DIRECTOR!
