Amber Jordan graduated from Tarleton State University in 2011 with a BFA in theatre. Moved to Los Angeles in 2011, where she worked on her college internship and worked at a film production company. As an Abilene native she moved back in 2012. Amber has been a part of many productions in college and during her internship. In fall 2012, she was hired as the technical director at Abilene High School. It was there she was nominated two years in a row for best costumes in Dallas Summer Musicals for her work from In the Heights and Urinetown. During her two year stint at AHS, the program was nominated for countless awards. Amber now works at Craig Middle School as the drama teacher.
Amber is new to ACT and is looking forward to doing much more with the community theatre! Recently she was cast as Sissy in ACT's A Piece of My Heart. She has produced, directed, stage managed, designed for set, costumes, lights, sound, and acted in over 30 plays and films. Most notably as an extra zombie in SyFy's "Zombie Apocalypse". Amber is thrilled for the opportunity to spread her love of theatre to CTE's members!

The mission of ACT's Center for Theatre Education is to create a safe, inviting environment where individuals of all ages and backgrounds can grow in self-confidence and creativity while feeling free to experience, learn about, and nurture a love and respect for all elements of theatre.
The CTE hopes to make this experience available to all socio-econmic levels and all traditionally underserved populations of the Big Country.
