Tyne Turner is originally from Michigan where her family ran Will-O-Way Apprentice Theatre from 1942-1985. She now lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where she heads the theatre program at Golda Meir School for the Gifted and Talented. She received her Equity card from Meadowbrook Theatre in 1986 and has served on the faculties of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, University of Wisconsin Milwaukee as well as UW Madison, Southern Methodist University and the University of Minnesota BFA/Guthrie Program. She is a voice and speech specialist and has served as a voice and speech coach for many prestigious companies including Utah Shakespeare Festival, Alabama Shakespeare Festival, Seattle Rep and more. She loves coming back to Interlochen each summer, where her mother studied violin in 1929. The students, colleagues, and vision are always inspiring, and an enduring reminder through the year of why we do this work.
