Before joining the Dartmouth faculty as Associate Professor of Theater in 2006, Jamie Horton was a principal actor and director with the Tony Award-winning Denver Center Theatre Company for twenty-three years. He played over eighty leading roles on the DCTC stages and was an active part of the company's new play development program. Directing and acting work have taken him to other theatres around the country, including the Creede Repertory Theatre, the Commonweal Theatre Company, the Mark Taper Forum, the Cleveland Play House, and, closer to home, the New London Barn Playhouse and Northern Stage, where he recently played Juror #8 in 12 Angry Men. He had a twenty-year association with the National Theatre Conservatory's MFA program as adjunct teacher, leading master classes in acting, directing student projects, and mentoring dozens of young actors making their transition into the professional theatre. He has worked extensively in film, television and radio -- as actor, screenwriter and producer. He played a small role in Steven Spielberg's Lincoln and was the recipient of a Fox Foundation Fellowship in 2003. Professor Horton teaches acting and directing, and is the current Director of Theater. Directing credits at Dartmouth include The Heidi Chronicles, Julius Caesar, Stop Kiss, and The Liar.
