“Keith used every part of the production as a teachable moment. From the first cold read to closing night, his student actors were continuously challenged. Keith understands that by working in the theatre regardless of his role or in what capacity, it is an opportunity to encourage others to explore other experiences in order to communicate and empathize with a story and ultimately an audience. -Lesley Meek, Adjunct Faculty Rio Salado and Paradise Valley Community College”
