Playwrights, Composers, Lyricists and Authors
Suzi Zimmerman is no stranger to performance. She attended Kilgore College, home of the Texas Shakespeare Festival, on an acting scholarship and continued her education at Texas A&M University in Commerce, Texas. Zimmerman eventually founded Theatre Off the Wall, a small acting company, which evolved into her hometown's community playhouse. She found her true love in teaching, but at that time, there were few resources available for middle and high school drama teachers. To bridge the gap, she began collecting and designing her own creative, hands-on lessons and organizational forms and has published them into a collection of books. She has directed and appeared in over two hundred plays and has also appeared in dozens of TV commercials and industrial videos. She retired from teaching in 2008 but continues to influence young people through her extensive volunteer work.
