Biography

My name is Meggie Greivell, I am a freelance director.  I enjoy directing a wide range of genres, from Shakespeare, to new works, to children's plays.  I've worked with various theatre companies in the Twin Cities as a director, assistant director and teaching artist.  Some companies include, Theatre Unbound, Northern Starz Children's Theatre, Gadfly Theatre Productions,  Workhaus Collective, Pillsbury House Theatre and Theatre Pro Rata. I enjoy directing youth just as much as I do adults.  My favorite plays to direct are ones that have a direct impact on the community, that help to create change.
