MFA, University of Oregon
Building: PAC, Room 105
Department Position: Theatre faculty
Ruth received her BA in Theatre from California State University, Chico in 1976 and her MFA in Theatre from the University of Oregon in 1979. Although she spent the bulk of her career teaching, designing and directing throughout the Pacific Northwest, her "Wildcat" roots brought her back to Chico in 2003 to continue her career where it all began. She has been a performing arts faculty member at Evergreen State College, a high school drama teacher and director and has designed and directed numerous theatre productions over the past 35 years. Her love of teaching, along with her range of experience in the performing arts has given her the flexibility to teach a wide range of classes from costume and make-up design to acting. She is excited to be a part of the department, and to have the opportunity to collaborate with a wide array of faculty, staff, and students.
