Allison Fifield - Aspen Country Day School

Allison Fifield
Lower School Drama Teacher

A 2008 ACDS graduate, Allison is thrilled to be back in the Roaring Fork Valley. She attended boarding school at Interlochen Arts Academy and then earned a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Acting at Syracuse University. Allison also studied in London, working at Shakespeare Globe and performing on the Globe stage in a production of Romeo and Juliet

Following college, Allison was an education intern in New York at The New Group, 52nd Street Project, TADA, and Manhattan Theatre Club. For five years after that she was the Artistic Programs and Events Manager at Philadelphia Theatre Company (PTC) where she handled all casting initiatives, the literary and patron services departments, line producing, and was tasked with managing over 200 staff members and reopening the venue after the COVID pandemic. She was also instrumental in reviving the PTC’s Terrence McNally Award that “seeks to recognize playwrights who create art that is subversive and provocative.”

Allison believes that theatre can be a powerful tool when it comes to developing imagination, confidence, and self worth.
