SHANNON COLTRANE (Hildy Esterhazy) is thrilled to return to The Shedd for this summer’s productions. For the past few years Shannon has been based in New York City immersing herself in the city’s rich drama therapy and theatre performance communities appearing as Amanda in Private Lives and Shelley in Must/Can’t—a piece of Therapeutic Theatre. Shannon is elated to begin her M.F.A. in acting at NIU this fall. She also holds a M.A. in Drama Therapy from NYU and a B.F.A. in Acting from USC. Favorite past credits include: Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (Lorelei Lee), Camelot (Guinevere), Avenue Q (Kate Monster), The Great Gatsby (Daisy Buchanan), Ordinary Days (Claire), God of Carnage (Annette), and Maidens Prayer (Cynthia). Thank you to her wonderful family and the spectacular theatre community in Eugene for all your support and to Jim, Ginevra, and Peg for the opportunity to spend the summer in blissful Eugene!
