Freddy’s 7th Year at Theatre Action Project

by Freddy Carnes, Artistic Associate

I am coming up on my seventh anniversary with Theatre Action Project (TAP) and  I have loved every moment!  It is the best kind of non-profit organization:

  • It does amazing work every day with the children of Central Texas.
  • It is a model for arts education.
  • It is also a model for how an employer treats its employees: with respect and empowerment.

I have proudly told many people that I work for such an amazing company.

Natalie Goodnow (left) and Brian Fahey (right, with Carol Ann Willhite and Chelsea Gilman) will be leaving TAP soon, and we will miss them)

I must also say that two of the best people who also happen to work for TAP will be leaving soon.  I have worked with Natalie Goodnow since 2007, first touring with her in “The Heroes/Los Heroes”, then working with teacher training.  I found her gentle and giving.  We will miss you, Natalie.

Brian Fahey has been a wonderful human who also works with all of the touring shows and markets many of our programs including summer camp.  He has brought such intelligence and energy to his job that sometimes I forget how hard his job is.  You will be missed, Brian.

  1. Thank you so much, Freddy! Teaching with you at camps this summer has reminded me how cheerfully and tirelessly you work with TAP’s youth. You are so gifted, thank you!
