Hadley Kamminga-Peck

Dr. Hadley Kamminga-Peck received her BA in drama and Italian from Colorado College and her master’s degree from the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts. She comes from the Twin Cities, Minnesota, and returned there to work for the Guthrie Theater before coming to Boulder to pursue her PhD. Hadley’s work focuses on theater history and script analysis; she has worked as a dramaturg for the Colorado Shakespeare Festival for the past five years, researching more productions than any other dramaturg in the festival’s history. At CU-Boulder, she has taught classes in theater history, script analysis, acting and musical theater. She has also taught courses in theater history and dramaturgy for the University of Northern Colorado. Hadley has worked as an actor, singer, dancer, musician, dramaturg, house manager and director, most recently assistant directing CSF’s production of "Henry V" and working as the onstage prompter for "Henry VI" Part 1. Her dissertation, "Gender and the King’s Two Bodies," used a mid-16th century political theory to discover a fuller means of interpreting female characters in the Elizabethan and Jacobean canon.
