Tara Bouldrey is a passionate lover of theatre and the arts. She studied theatre and the Meisner technique for four years in a liberal arts setting at Alma College in Michigan, and is grateful to have spent several years after graduation working regularly both onstage and behind the scenes of many productions in southwest Michigan. During those years Tara performed many roles including director, choreographer, box office staff, business development, set builder, set painter and running crew-- but her favorites have been and will always be those that put her on the stage.
Michigan blessed Tara with roles in plays such as Hamlet, A Few Good Men, Back County Crimes, This is Our Youth, and Dog Sees God (among others). Her work there culminated in an award-winning production of The Tempest which she directed, learned aerial acrobatics for, and performed in at What A Do Theatre in Battle Creek. Since her move to Chicago, Tara has performed with companies such as Haven Theatre, The Arc Theatre, The Cuckoo's Theatre Project, City Lit Theater, Glass Apple Theatre, COLLABORACTION, The Artistic Home and (re)discover theatre.
