HIGH SCHOOL DRAMA: University School of Nashville's AIDAN WATTHIGH SCHOOL DRAMA: University School of Nashville's AIDAN WATT
by Jeffrey Ellis (Nashville)

As part of the amazing theater program at USN, Aidan's been learning from the best: Catherine Coke, whose resume includes work on all levels of professional theater, heads the program, with the estimable Jim Manning, perhaps Nashville's hardest working scenic designer (not to detract from any of the other designers in town, of course, who do great work, but Jim Manning - a 2012 First Night Star Award winner - tends to work on multiple productions for multiple companies at the same time. Whew!), heading technical and design teams.
