Hannah M. Sawyer
Teacher, Artist, and Actor in Little Rock, Arkansas
When I was 3 years old my mother took me to my first play. At the end I didn't applaud; I cried because I didn't want it to be over. Thus began my love affair with the stage.
I love theatre, film, acting, directing, costuming, & teaching young actors & artists. The art of make-believe has been the story of my life, & since I was just 8 years old, I have been at home in the theatre both onstage & off.
By day, I'm a drama teacher at LR Central High School. I've also taught theatre at Cabot Junior High South, NLR West & Central Arkansas Christian School. In my "free time" I have enjoyed working onstage & off at numerous local theaters including The Studio Theatre, The Benton Royal, The Weekend Theater, Community Theatre of Little Rock, Old Statehouse & The Arkansas Repertory Theatre.
