Lisa Ann Gaylord is proud to be returning to Mirror Image Arts (MIA) as one of their teaching artists. Lisa was a part of the first project MIA produced in 2008 by understudying and eventually taking over the role of ‘Carly’ in the eating disorder awareness show “Breaking the Silence”. It was this introduction to social justice theater that fueled Lisa to continue her acting career by going to school in NY at Adelphi University for her BFA in Theatre. After graduating in 2013, Lisa traveled and performed in Chicago, Southern CO, and Alaska. She is happy to be back in her native state of CO where she is a professional actress and teaching artist for several organizations in the Denver-metro area. Doing this inspiring and life-changing work is what made Lisa passionate about theatre. She hopes that through the programs at MIA she can give back to the community that helped foster her love and passion; and in turn she can continue spreading the joy of learning theatre and discovering one’s own voice and value.
