Caroline Hull

Company Manager

Born and raised in Orlando, FL, Caroline has been a lover of the arts from the moment she was born. She is a graduate of The University of Central Florida with a degree in both theatre studies and creative writing. She loves spending time with her family, playing with her dog, and advocating for the awareness of invisible disabilities such as Narcolepsy, which she was diagnosed with in 2018.

Performance

Inspired by her father - a musician and songwriter from Memphis - Caroline began performing in musicals and plays at Wekiva Elementary School. As she continued her pursuits of educational theatre, she eventually expanded her horizons to include community theatre and choir. At Lake Brantley High School she became the president of her Thespian Troupe and received superior performance ratings at both the district and state levels. In addition to drama, Caroline was also heavily involved in her school's choral program, specifically Spectrum Chamber Choir. She received superiors at both District and State Solo and Ensemble competitions.

She continued her passions for acting and singing at the University of Central Florida, participating in numerous educational, community, and professional productions throughout her college career. She has appeared in multiple short films, and has done voice-over work for the purpose of video game development. She currently is represented by Professionally Pretty as an actress and model.

Writing

Caroline's love for the written word first appeared in the fourth grade when she would create stories about her stuffed animals traveling on fantastical adventures - but her adoration for the art of playwriting bloomed after performing in her first student-written One Act Festival at the University of Central Florida. This inspired her to write her first one act script, Break, which she submitted to the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival (Region IV). Break was one of three selected scripts across the region to be invited to the festival in South Carolina for a staged reading. At the 2019 festival, Break was awarded the John Cauble Award for Outstanding Short Play and was invited to return to the festival in 2020 for a fully staged production.

Since her first playwriting experience, Caroline has had numerous scripts produced by Project Spotlight, UCF's student developmental theatre organization (one act plays and ten minute plays). She also held the position of Artistic Director for Project Spotlight during her final semester at the university. Her first full-length play, As It's Written, was selected for development and workshop by Pegasus PlayLab, which held a virtual staged reading in June 2021. As It's Written was also selected for UCF Celebrates the Arts 2022, and will have a fully staged performance at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts in April 2022.

Dramaturgy

After learning more about the significance of research in regards to the development of theatre, Caroline discovered an appreciation for dramaturgy. After a few individual research projects, her first real experience as a dramaturg was for the University of Central Florida's virtual production of Kill Move Paradise in October, 2020. She and her co-dramaturg created multiple deliverables, including a research website, inspired playlists, an actor's packet, and more. Her work was nominated for KCACTF Region IV's dramaturgy program, where she received the award for Special Recognition in Digital Dramaturgy. At the festival, she served as dramaturg for the new work An Expansion (a ten-minute play).

In the following year, she worked as dramaturg on UCF's production of the musical First Date, where she was again nominated for KCACTF Region IV 2022. Caroline hopes to further expand her knowledge and have the opportunity to research more original productions.
