Well-behaved women seldom make history." - Laurel Thatcher Ulrich


Throughout her career, Amanda Masterpaul has worked as a puppeteer, movement coach, director, and facilitator and coordinator for after-school community-based civic learning programs. She is currently teaching the Applied Theatre class at CCU which establishes a working knowledge of Theatre of the Oppressed. She produces the theatrical portion of the CINO Tie Program, called “Haven Live,” which is a fully interactive, highly theatricalized production exploring sexual assault on campus while also addressing the larger issues focused on the intersections of sexual assault, rape culture, sexuality and gender.
