Welcome to Wolverine Theatre Mr. Aaron Yowell
We are happy to welcome the newest member of the Wolverine Theatre team, Mr Aaron Yowell. He is very excited to meet the wonderful people of Wakeland Theatre and is ready to start a great year! Below is just a little bit about him.
Mr. Yowell was born and raised in Colorado. He received a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Northern Colorado. To start his teaching career, Mr. Yowell was a high school choir teacher for four years. In 2011, Mr. Yowell moved to Frisco, Texas to be closer to his family. Mr. Yowell taught all things Performing Arts at Leadership Prep School for six years before moving to Plano ISD last year. While at LPS, Mr. Yowell’s students won State Championships in OAP at both the Middle School and High School levels. In 2018, Mr. Yowell graduated with his Master of Arts in Theatre from Regent University. Last year in Plano, Mr. Yowell’s students took 1st place in the Plano ISD UIL OAP festival. This school year will be Mr. Yowell’s twelfth year of teaching. Mr. Yowell is married and has a beautiful baby girl. In his very fleeting spare time, Mr. Yowell is a member of the Repertory Company Theatre in Richardson. This spring/summer he was Reuben in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Sam Carmichael in Mamma Mia, and will be Agatha Trunchbull in Matilda the Musical in July. Mr. Yowell is extremely excited to work with the staff and students and cannot wait to carry on the legacy of excellent theatre at Wakeland High School.
