Traci Ledford (2009)

After earning her BFA at Baylor, Traci Ledford served as the Education and Outreach Intern at the Dallas Theater Center before devoting nine years to teaching theatre in the public school systems of Texas and North Carolina before deciding to pursue an MFA from Baylor.  After graduation, she was hired by East Texas Baptist University where she currently serves as the Department Chair and Associate Professor of Theatre Arts.  In the spring of 2015, she was asked to serve as a blogger for The Intersection, the official blog for the Center for Excellence in Christian Scholarship (CECS) at East Texas Baptist University.  All of Professor Ledford's blogs serve to educate those outside the world of theatre on what it means to be a theatre major at ETBU (linked below).

As a director, Traci has helmed over fifty productions; among them are Tartuffe, Our Town, The Three Musketeers, A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Voice of the Prairie, Moon Over the Brewery, Sunday in the Park with George, The Dazzle, Lend Me a Tenor, Pride and Prejudice, The 39 Steps, Urinetown, The Heiress, and Metamorphoses.

In 2011, Traci was the Assistant Director for WaterTower Theatre's production of The Traveling Lady in Dallas, Texas (Marion Castleberry, director).  In the summer of 2016, she will be the Assistant Director for the Colorado Shakespeare Festival's production of Cymbeline (Jim Helsinger, director).

Traci also continues to perform as an actress; her roles have included such classics as Juliet in Romeo and Juliet, Viola in Twelfth Night, Andromache in The Trojan Women and the Mother in Federico García Lorca's Blood Wedding.  Most recently she has played Rosannah in Brilliant Traces and Clytemnestra in Iphigenia 2.0.
