Dr. Victoria Spangler is an Associate Professor of Theatre at Hardin Simmons
University, where she has been adjunct professor off and on for the past
twenty years. Prior to this appointment, Dr. Spangler was the Executive
Director of Young Audiences of Abilene, an art in education organization

She received her Bachelor of Arts in theatre from McMurry University in

Commerce. She taught high school drama for six years before beginning work
on her doctorate in theatre at Texas Tech. Dr. Spangler’s dissertation topic
was “Teen Theatre: A Model for Addressing Risk Issues in Adolescents.” That
paved the way for her position as a Safe and Drug Free Schools Consultant at
Region 14 in Texas, a position that she enjoyed for 17 years, managing and
directing a 6-member theatre troupe who wrote and performed original
programs focusing on healthy choices for teens.

Dr. Spangler has also been a theatre professor at Cisco College and McMurry
