If you ask Miranda Hartmann why she��s involved in theater, you will get an earful! The All-of-Us Express artistic director and alumnus is full of passion for the art, which she believes has a place in everyone��s life, on or off the stage. ���I think there are valuable things to be learned through theater and drama for every person in the world, and I want to be a part of educating people about that���it��s theater education as a whole,�� she says. It��s this belief that makes her work at All-of-Us Express Children��s Theater (AECT) so rewarding. She��s helping children understand this value early on so they can take it into their lives and use it to their advantage as they make their way across life��s stage.
