Mr. Patrick S. young
“This above all: to thine own self be true..." -- William Shakespeare
HAMLET, Act I, Scene II
Patrick Young is excited to join General Ray Davis Middle School as the new Theatre Teacher. His most recent interactions with the program was as co-choreographer alongside his wife, Janie Young, for The Addams Family Jr., Junie B. Jones Jr., and the most recent Suessical the Musical Jr.
He has been an actor and director in the Atlanta area for over 10 years. During which he taught Kids Theatre and Improv at yourACT Studios and was the Artistic Director of Onion Man Productions.
His wife, whom he met at drama camp, is a multi M.A.T. Awards nominee in Choreography. They have two sons, Tennyson and Venture. And a beagle named Ruby-June.
He is humbled to carry the torch that was handed to him and is honored to help continue the growth of the drama program. And is dedicated to expanding and evolving the experience for each student; to cultivate their passions and nurture their skills.
His philosophies are:
" If you take away the opportunity for a child to try, then you have taken away the opportunity for that child to succeed."
" If you take away the opportunity for a child to be challenged, then you have taken away the opportunity for that child to excel."
"So, let's give them opportunities."
