From 1983-2006, Jamie Horton was a principal actor and director with the Tony Award-winning Denver Center Theatre Company. 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 and the Cleveland Play House. 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 was the recipient of a Fox Foundation Fellowship in 2003 and came to Dartmouth in 2005 as guest director of The Heidi Chronicles. Professor Horton teaches acting and directing and directs mainstage productions.
