Anne Sandoe (Board Member) was born and raised in Boulder, and attended CU for her undergraduate degree. Her subsequent graduate studies and career took her from the West coast to the East, and from upstate New York to the deep South. Anne is an actress, director, and teacher with a passion for Shakespeare and the performance of his works. After completing her MFA degree, Anne taught acting and voice at San Francisco State University, and then at Wright State University, where she was tenured as an associate professor. During the summers, she performed with the Alabama Shakespeare Festival, designed and was Director of their Conservatory Program for two years. That program became the basis for an MFA program in conjunction with the University of Alabama.
After seven years of teaching, Anne’s two-career marriage took the family to Cornell University where she took an administrative job with the Graduate School of Business and began what has now been a 32-year career in program administration for graduate business programs at Cornell, Duke, and now CU. Since returning to Boulder, Anne has enjoyed opportunities to perform, direct and teach. She has been seen in productions at the Colorado Shakespeare Festival, Boulder Ensemble Theatre Company, Longmont Theatre Company, the Shakespeare Oratorio Society and the Coal Creek Theatre. In previous years, she has performed with the Oregon, Colorado, Alabama, Virginia and Antioch Shakespeare Festivals.
