Jackie McCall joined Augustana’s faculty in 2019 as the Brunner Theatre outreach coordinator. An Augustana College graduate, she earned an M.F.A. in acting from Western Illinois University. In recent years, McCall has had the opportunity to direct Theatre for Young Audiences productions at Augie and teach acting at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids.
For the past 16 years she was with the Old Creamery Theatre in Amana, Iowa, serving as the professional company’s director of education and director of development in addition to acting and directing. One of her proudest accomplishments while working with Old Creamery was heading up the creation of the award winning Camp Creamery program which has provided thousands of students with hands-on theatre experiences across the state of Iowa. Camp Creamery has also been held at Augustana each summer since Mississippi Bend Players’ inaugural season in 2017.
