Director of Theater
My name is Kady Laudun, and I am the Director of Theatre in the Performing Arts Academy and the Assistant Speech and Debate Coach. I am a recent graduate of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette where I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education with a concentration in Speech Education. I am currently working towards my Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction with a concentration in Theatre Pedagogy.
During my time as a student at UL Lafayette, I was mentored by Mr. Jacob Simon for my year-long residency. For the Spring 2022 musical, I was the Music Director for Little Shop of Horrors and assisted with training students in technical aspects of theatre.
I began teaching in the Lafayette area at after school performing arts programs for ages 3-18, teaching a variety of classes that range from acting, stage management, directing, auditioning, etc.
I also teach private vocal and piano lessons at the Music Academy, which is a private music school in the Acadiana area. Some of my future aspirations include becoming a working actor in the industry in order to bring back as much knowledge as I can from the field to become a better teacher for my students.
