Hello my name is Dustin Tannahill and welcome to Theatre at Baines Middle School. This is my first year teaching and I'm very excited to be joining the Baines community and the wonderful Fine Arts department. I am a graduate of Rice University with a B.A. in Visual and Dramatic Arts and a focus on Theatre. I've spent the last six years working as a freelance Lighting Designer and Theatrical Electrician and recently worked full time for the 2018 season at the Alley Theatre, Houston's Tony Award-winning regional theatre. Although my skills are primarily in technical theatre, I also have professional acting experience and was previously a co-founder/head-writer/lead-performer for a Houston based sketch comedy group. I believe theatre can teach students valuable life skills that will translate to any field they choose to pursue in their life beyond Baines. In the meantime I look forward to getting to know my students and having fun while we work hard to achieve our goals in the arts.
