Dominque Simmons

Artistic Director
Occupation: Teacher

Dominque is a former Broadway World award nominated stage actress whose theatre education hails from Casper’s own community college, under the direction of the late Tom Empey. She spent many years performing professionally in musical theatre productions all over the region, such as Big River, Seven Brides For Seven Brothers, She Loves Me, and many more. Lately, her focus has shifted from being on stage to teaching language arts and directing theatre productions at CY Middle School.

Dominque has a true passion in developing and nurturing the next generation of fine arts performers, and the CCT allowing her to do just that makes her feel ultra lucky!

Audrey Egan

Executive Director
Occupation: Teacher

Audrey currently teaches 8th grade Language Arts and directs the theatre productions at CY Middle School. Her passion for the theatre began in 6th grade when she starred in her first production, Annie. Since then she has been in many productions in both the United States and Canada, and traveled with the cast of Up With People performing the show, Roads, for a year.

Audrey’s love of theatre has focused more on directing and inspiring young performers in the last decade. Joining the CCT has been a dream come true for Audrey, and she am excited to use her passion and talents to inspire, direct, and shape the landscape of children’s theatre in Casper.

Jessica joined the CCT Board of Directors in 2015 and was recently elected President. She has been involved in theatre for as long as she can remember. Jessica was in Casper Children’s Theatre when she was a kid and has always been passionate about theatre and performing ever since. She received a musical theatre scholarship from Casper College, and met her husband while in the musical “Children Of Eden”.

After having children of her own, Jessica knew she wanted to expose them to my love of theatre. Her children have been actively involved in CCT since 2011. Jessica believes in CCT and has seen first-hand the amazing opportunities and skills it offers our youth. She joined the board so that she could help drive and support this wonderful organization. She strongly believes in being an active member of my community and especially serving others.
