Director/Instructor/Master Teacher/ Senior Professional Educator
Aileen Targett is thrilled to be starting her first year at Gahanna Lincoln High School.
The Gahanna Lincoln Theatre Department is an educational program that brings together students as well as members of the community through live performances, live streaming performances, and through community service. This department strives to deliver high caliber theatre experiences for the public that have large student engagement, interdisciplinary collaboration, and overall professional performances.
The Gahanna Lincoln Theatre Department strives for its season, cast, and crew to reflect the diversity of the Community. Shows are chosen that not only interest and challenge the performers and technicians, but that also have the ability to instill both a deeper understanding and empathy for the world around them, and to challenge and grow the technical skills of the students. It is Gahanna’s goal to maintain inclusivity at all times. Students should feel celebrated, supported, and nurtured not in spite of their differences but because of them. In the Gahanna Lincoln Theatre Department there is the utmost respect for all bodies, voices and beliefs. With a newfound focus and passion we are ensuring our Theatre Department is for all persons including, but not limited to, members of the BIPOC community, the LGBTQA++ community and the neurodivergent community. Through education, through self reflection, and through the art of theatre, we hope to create and share a place of equality, equity, and accountability.
