Florida Studio Theatre (FST) is pleased to announce the appointment of its new Director of Education, Josh Ford. In this role, Ford will oversee, coordinate, and continue to grow FST’s education programs for youth and adults. He will also provide leadership as FST launches and develops a new sketch comedy program. Ford brings over 20 years of educational theatre and programming experience to FST. Ford is familiar with FST’s Education program, returning after 17 years. As a child he, himself, performed with FST’s Kids Komedy Club in 1989 and later, worked as an Education Intern. For two years, he also worked as a full-time Teaching Artist, overseeing the middle school and high school components of FST’s award-winning WRITE A PLAY arts-in-education program. Ford is also one of FST Improv’s founding cast members—performing with the group for three years. In addition to his education and programming background, Ford is an accomplished writer, actor, and director. His background in comedy and writing will be vital as he works to develop FST’s new sketch comedy program alongside Rebecca Hopkins (FST’s Managing Director) and FST’s Director of Improvisation.
