Meet the Director: Luke Krueger
Luke Krueger is happy to return to Vermont to direct the inaugural Vermont Summer Academy at Green Mountain College. Luke served as the resident playwright at Northern Stage in White River Junction. While there he headed up Project Playwright, an in-school program in which he taught playwriting to 5th and 6th grade students, who eventually saw their work brought to life by professional actors and directors from New York City. Luke's love of education and building exciting summer programs has led him to serve as the director at sleep-away and day camps in New Jersey, Florida, New York City, and Virginia. Luke brings with him a wealth of educational experience as well. He has taught full-time at the college level for thirteen years at such schools as Arizona State University, Lake Forest College, Loyola University, and Northern Illinois University. The courses he has taught have included creative writing, literature, and theatre.
An accomplished playwright and author, Luke has had his plays performed across the country including New York and Chicago and is a member of the Dramatist Guild of America. In 2006 he served as the Emerging Writer in Residence at Penn State University. He is also the author of A Noble Function: How U-Haul Moved America. Currently, he is a visiting assistant professor of theatre at Northern Illinois University, where his most recent play, an adaptation of The Canterbury Tales was produced. Luke holds an MFA in playwriting from Arizona State University and a BA in English from Miami University (Ohio).
