Keynote address by Theatre professor Dan Rairdin-Hale will begin at 3 p.m. with a reception following at 5 p.m.
Rairdan-Hale currently is an assistant professor of theatre at St. Ambrose University where he also directs award-winning stage productions, most notably Oedipus Rex, a new ensemble creation which was invited to perform at the regional Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival in Ames, Iowa.
Prior to his teaching position, he lived and worked in Chicago as a professional actor and street performer. He has stage credits from numerous companies in Chicago including The Goodman Theatre, the Chicago Shakespeare Theatre, and LifeLine Theatre. He has also performed at The Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. and is an invited artist of Cirque du Soleil.
On film, he held the leading role in the feature length zombie comedy, A Cadaver Christmas, a movie he co-wrote and produced that Variety calls "quite funny" and "ludicrously over-the-top."
Rairdan-Hale earned his bachelor's in theatre from St. Ambrose University and an MFA in acting from The Theatre School at DePaul University in Chicago. He has additional movement and clown training from Dell'Arte International in California.
