ASHTON BYRUM
MFA Directing, 2010

 “As a graduate student in Directing with an emphasis in Musical Theatre, I was given many invaluable opportunities to develop my craft as a director and teacher. The productions at CCM are second-to-none. I was able to direct several shows with amazingly talented casts and crew, graduate and faculty designers, choreographers and musical directors. CCM can boast of production support that many professional theatres can only dream of. The facilities are state-of the-art and the faculty directors and designers are generous and brilliant. Most importantly, the students at CCM learn how to get work – because every class is taught through the lens of creating a career.”

Ashton is currently an Assistant Professor and Coordinator of the Musical Theatre Performance program at Columbia College Chicago, directing their recent production of Rent, as well as “Live in Living Color” and “Raise the Roof”, wildly popular showcases for new musical theatre students.
