James Bennett

I am an alumni of the Academy for Academics and Arts. I was drawn into stagecraft and technical theatre early on at AAA and went on to the Tech Theatre Magnet Program at Lee High. My work at Lee earned a scholarship to the University of Montevallo. At Montevallo, I studied theatre production and direction to earn a Bachelors' Degree in Fine Arts with concentration in Theatre Design and Technology. I have worked in many roles, from designing to stage management, in community theatre in Huntsville and in Birmingham. I have worked at the Von Braun Center and Birmingham Jefferson Community Complex. Before Butler High School closed, I got my first experience in theatre education in 2013, volunteering to help a group of teachers there revive the theatre program.

I am very excited about returning to AAA to work with the talented staff and students to create unique theatre experiences in our amazing new theatre building.
