Claire Ballard is just so grateful to head into the next chapter alongside these wonderful artists and friends! Born on the Mississippi/Tennessee state line, she likes to say she got the best combination of Memphis city soul music and Mississippi soul food. Their time at Shenandoah has been nothing short of wonderful. Claire has served as a Producer for student group Playwrights Performances for 4 years, as well as The Loaf Improv Comedy for two years. She has loved her youthful roles here at Shenandoah, including Winnie Foster TUCK EVERLASTING, Fleance/Macduff’s son MACBETH, and ensemble in BRIGHT STAR. Outside of performing, Claire can always be found either out in the woods, cooking an elaborate meal for friends, listening to country folk music, or being dog parent of the year to her little dog, Pinecone.
