Graduate school was a whirlwind for James Fisher ’76 MFA.
“We were teaching or working in the shop during the day and rehearsing all night,” he recalled. “I don’t remember much eating or sleeping, but I’d go back in a minute and do it again.”
Esteemed professor Herman Middleton drew him to UNCG. Professor Kathryn England nudged him toward directing. He became a professor and has directed more than 150 plays.
In 2007, Fisher returned to UNCG to join the faculty. He continues to teach and direct.
“When I walked out on that stage (in 2007), it was like no time had passed and it was just time for rehearsal to start,” he said.
