Here we go!

Hello! Let me start by saying that I am excited at taking on the challenge of being Drama Director for Ledyard Drama. Having been Director of Theatre Arts at Lyme/Old Lyme High School for fourteen years, where I directed over thirty shows, I feel confident that, together, we can build on the already successful tradition of excellent theatre at Ledyard High School. I am also aware that change can be difficult and I am sure there will be a transition period as we get used to each other. Let's all promise to be open minded as we move forward and let's keep focused on our primary goal of bringing to life wonderful characters and telling wonderful stories. Our efforts should make both ourselves and our audience’s laugh, cry, think, and experience all the rest of the wide range of emotions associated with the human condition. Theatre is the exploration of life and ultimately it is the sharing of our findings with our audiences. I look forward to the journey.

Mr. Hammond
