Amy Livingston is the Education Director for Egyptian Theatre and has worked with the program since 2016. She is a multi-faceted artist with professional experience as an actor, musical theatre performer, opera singer, theatre educator, voice coach, and photographer. She spent the first part of her career in the classical music world and earned her Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from the University of Utah before deciding to pursue theatre instead, going on to earn her Master of Fine Arts in Acting from the University of Central Florida. 

Amy started teaching somewhat by accident in 2013, when she was asked by a friend to help spearhead a summer theatre program for her high school in Boise, Idaho. She fell in love with theatre education almost immediately, and never looked back! She believes wholeheartedly that theatre is and always should be a safe haven in which kids can freely explore themselves, their ideas, and their creativity. Her students consistently amaze and inspire her, and she considers herself incredibly lucky to be able to work with them every day. Amy worked for several years as an instructor for Egyptian YouTheatre as well as the Garden Theatre in Orlando, Florida before being offered the position of YouTheatre Education Director in 2022. She specializes in teaching acting technique, stage and musical theatre voice, and Shakespeare, and she also enjoys directing and stage managing YouTheatre shows. 

Outside of her work as an educator, Amy has maintained a varied performing career across the United States. Over the years, she has had the privilege of working with Utah Lyric Opera, Utah Opera, The Ohio Light Opera, The Orlando Shakespeare Theatre, Plan-B Theatre Company, and Play is the Thing. She holds a particular passion for developing and performing new and local work and has been lucky enough to perform roles in new plays by Emily Dendinger, Tammy Ryan, Rachel Bublitz, and Jamie Wilcox. 

In her free time, Amy can never decide on a single hobby, so she may be found hiking, reading, figure skating, taking pictures, knitting enormous blankets, or playing video games, but most of the time you can find her on her couch, snuggling her precious cat, Sammy.
