Abbie Carpenter, Instructor
Abbie is an alum of Davenport Junior Theatre, having started classes when she was eight. Abbie’s first role on the DJT Mainstage was the ensemble of James and The Giant Peach, at age nine, and continued through high school with more fun and fantastic shows such as The Wizard of Oz, The Jungle Book, and The Velveteen Rabbit.
Abbie is a junior at St. Ambrose University studying theatre. She hopes to one day perform and direct professionally and to eventually hold an administrative position somewhere with a company like DJT!
When she is not busy teaching kiddos theatre or studying for classes or in rehearsals, Abbie loves to spend time with friends and family, particularly her siblings Ben, Isaiah, Zeke, and Hannah. Abbie has a pet fish named Phoenix who keeps her company at St. Ambrose and two dogs at home who she loves to go visit! She is very crafty in her limited free time, creating custom painted shoes or other DIY crafting projects.
