Directors Roundtable: Ron Zank and Jamie Bullins!

Our first Directors Roundtable begins with two talented and charismatic  Professors of Theatre:  Jamie Bullins from UNL and Ron Zank from UNO!  Their expertise and contribution to local theatre made them wonderful guests of our Directors Roundtable.  

We are so excited to bring you this podcast.  We have been working toward this idea for quite some time.  There will definitely be more Roundtable discussions in the near future!

Ron Zank is an Assistant Professor of Theatre at the University of Nebraska Omaha.  He has a BA in English from UNL, a MA in Theatre from UNO and a PhD in Theatre from the University of Missouri Columbia. Ron teaches Theatre History and Dramatic Literature, as well as Introduction to Theatre and Script Analysis.  He has directed at many local Omaha Area theatres, such as Chanticleer Community Theatre, Shelterbelt, GPTC, the Dundee Dinner Theatre and Bluebarn Theatre.  

Jamie Bullins is an Associate Professor of Theatre at the Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film at UNL and also advises for their student-run theatre, Theatrix.  Jamie specializes in Costume Design and you may have even seen a play he has been involved in at several Lincoln and Omaha theatres.  He also is a Scene Designer and Playwright. He has an M.F.A. in Theatrical Design / Scenography is from the University of North Carolina / Greensboro, and he moved to Lincoln from Atlanta, Georgia.  Jamie is also Staff for Angels Theatre Company's Playwriting Collective. 

Both of these talented Directors have been on our Podcast before and we were elated to have them back for a fun discussion about Directing!  We thank them profusely for being part of our first Directors Roundtable!
