Justin Hatch
Student Advisory Board
I was born and raised in rural Maine and now live in Salem, Massachusetts. My introduction to theatre was through local community performance groups and drama clubs at school. Throughout middle and high school, I found my purpose as a theatre maker, educator, and administrator. As I continue my education in theatre, I am drawn to learning more about ways that theatre can influence communities, and vice versa. I enjoy exploring how theatre can be utilized as an educational tool to influence learners in both traditional classroom settings and in non-traditional formats. I work as an advocate for theatre students, both at my undergraduate institution and in my local community, coordinating with local non-profits and children’s groups. I will graduate from Salem State University in the spring of 2021 with both a Bachelor of Arts in theatre with a concentration in performance and a Bachelor of Science in educational studies with a concentration in community education.
