Meet the Instructors

Eddie & Sam Farnham

SEACT Youth Camp Founders

Eddie & Sam Farnham have been involved with SEACT as actors and directors since 1992, and teaching the next generation of theatre-lovers for at least that long. They have directed multiple main-stage youth performances including The Little Mermaid Jr., Shrek Jr., and Aladdin Jr. Each summer the duo write and direct an original children's script for SEACT's summer campers. These clever but silly plays are intended to allow for multiple characters (everyone gets a role!), and lots of action on the part of our enthusiastic stars.
