teve’s first summer at Camp Manitou was in 2002. He was the theater director directing Colleague League plays and camp musicals until 2010. Steve returned to Camp Manitou in 2020 where he produced a season of all out-door plays and helped develop Camp Manitou’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion team of directors. Steve has written several plays which were performed on the Manitou stage and loves how the power of theater is celebrated at Camp Manitou. Steve also teaches workshops in stage combat, comedy improv, and film acting here at camp. He loves that these campers are willing to try anything and step out of their comfort zones to create dynamic performances in their plays. These plays help create community, strengthen teamwork, and allow campers to try something new.
In the off-season Steve lives in New York City where he has been an actor, director, playwright, and educator. He received his Masters in Educational Theater from NYU and is a proud member of the American Alliance for Theater and Education. Steve is currently the Performing Arts Chair at Friends Seminary (a K-12 school) where he teaches theater and directs 3 productions a year.
