Please join us for an unforgettable evening with Marin native, actor, singer and model Heather Gordon. Heather will be sharing her experiences from the college process to ultimately becoming a working actor - what choices she made along the way from her start at College of Marin to her Masters in acting from Harvard University.

 Heather Gordon began studying acting, singing, and dance at a very early age. She started performing in theater at the age of 10 & was the proud recipient of the Robin Williams Acting Scholarship, as well as "Best Actor" awards 2002-2006, for her performances in various theatrical roles. Heather has toured CA performing theater in a professional theater troupe.

Heather continued her acting training at the prestigious American Repertory Theater/Moscow Art Theatre School (A.R.T./MXAT) Institute for Advanced Theater Training at Harvard University, where she received her Masters Degree in Acting. While at Harvard Heather was the Cover Model and featured story as a "Rising Star" on the Improper Bostonian Magazine.

  Ms. Gordon studied abroad in Moscow Russia, and performed professionally for three months at the world renowned Moscow Art Theater. 

Heather subsequently landed the lead in (2009 Tony award winning Broadway Director, and 2012 nominated) Diane Paulus' Musical, "The Donkey Show" at the American Repertory Theater, in which she performed for over a year.
