Arcadia Conrad grew up in the film and television business and therefore does not believe in talent. She is the Program Director of Cupertino Actors Theatre at Cupertino High School, where she teaches Drama full time, and holds a BA from Vassar College and an MA in Theatre from San Jose State University. She is the founder of Bay Area Drama Teachers, a Facebook group for theatre teachers in the SF Bay Area which has over 100 members. It’s a forum for Drama teachers to share ideas, resources, publicize their shows, and support each other. She loves animals, books, the wonders of nature, religious statuary, and Shakespeare.
