Connie Gatlin, longtime community and educational theater director, will be teaching children and youth classes in musical theater this coming season at Cleveland City Ballet.

Gatlin, who taught theater at Bradley Central High School and directed the award-winning show choir Ranstrassy, has more recently directed community events and musicals.

She is the founder of Bang-A-Rang Productions which is known for the outstanding quality of their performances.

Gatlin directed more than 35 productions at BCHS, the first Tennessee performance of Disney’s “High School Musical,” and the ever-popular “Always, Patsy Cline.”

Co-teaching the class will be Sarah Gibson, faculty member of Cleveland City Ballet.

Gibson most recently held the position of ballet mistress at Cumberland County Playhouse, where she gained extensive experience in staging and producing musical numbers.

There will be two levels of instruction based on the ages of the students enrolled, and all students will culminate their experience with a community performance.
