My deep roots in Texas make me very excited to partner in community-driven work to develop young professionals in the arts," says Preston. "My first performance outside of church as a child was with Plano Children's Theatre (predecessor to North Texas Performing Arts), so coming to work here feels like an exciting homecoming!"
