Tara McMahon

Teaching Artist

Tara first fell in love with performing at theatre camp, so it is only fitting that she shares that passion with her friends at Treasure Trunk this summer! Tara received her bachelor’s degree in Arts in Context with concentrations in Theatre and Global Studies and a minor in Gender Studies from Eugene Lang College, and has studied at the British American Drama Academy in the UK. As a teacher, Tara believes that theatre can be a tool for empowerment, creative exploration, and personal expression. Tara has worked as a producer, actor, and instructor with organizations such as the Veteran Artist Project, Culture Project, WAM Theatre, and the International Rescue Committee. She also designed and implemented a theatre program within the YMCA summer camp in her hometown of Westfield, MA. Tara is currently pursuing her master’s in Educational Theatre at the City College of New York, and loves learning from her teachers, classmates, and especially her students!
