CANDICE INGOLD is a traveling drama director and adjunct professor of acting and directing at Colorado State University who directs shows with a diverse touch. In the areas of teaching and directing Candice has brought a new perspective to many theaters. As an educator and director for over 11 years, Candice holds an MFA in Directing from the University of California-Davis. She is a CSU Theatre alum holding two BA’s in Performing Arts and Speech Communication, with a minor in English. Prior to CSU, Candice served as an assistant artistic director intern for Sacramento Theatre Company in California while also teaching acting and directing courses at the University of California. She most recently directed Wait Until Dark in June for Bas Bleu Theatre Company. Ingold is currently in the process of directing Scapin for OpenStage Theatre Company. From 2003-2004 Candice received a grant to teach and research drama in thirteen countries. From the poorest neighborhoods in India, Cuba, and Africa, to futuristic looking institutes and theaters in Japan and Hong Kong, she researched students’ backgrounds, home lives, schools and drama programs, or lack of drama programs. Candice began by introducing drama curriculum into schools that did not have one while also touring and researching the infrastructure of theaters that had gone from rags to riches.
She was recognized as the Artist Spotlight for Inside the City-Sacramento B Magazine in 2010. Candice hopes to continue her travels and research as an adjunct professor and director in hopes of achieving her long-term goal of being a full time tenured Professor of Theatre. “Life is a stage; for one night you get to feel, believe and be in someone else’s mind, shoes and body while discovering your own walks of life” ~ Candice
