Degrees and Certifications:

Tara Hatton


My name is Tara Hatton and I have been teaching theatre for 15 years, the past three of which have been at WCHS.  Previous high school directing credits include ... Grease, Cinderella, Disney's Beauty and the Beast, Fiddler on the Roof and Thoroughly Modern Millie.  I also enjoy acting and teaching at The Green Room Community Theatre in Newton, NC.  

I have a B.S in theatre education from Appalachian State and a M.Ed. in theatre education from UNC Greensboro.  

I am married to Aaron and I am mama to Smith and Charlie.  We also have a long-haired dauschund named Chili Dog.  

I am so proud to be a West Caldwell Warrior!  

And I am excited about all that is planned for this year ...

November 10, 2018 will be the very first Caldwell county DramaFest at the JE Broyhill civic center.  We will be performing WCHS student George Pruden's original, award winning play The Heart of Christmas.  

And in April we will be participating in Caldwell County's musical production of Disney's Beauty and the Beast.  I am looking forward to directing this classic once again and I expect to have lots of Warriors involved!  Performance dates are April 4, 5 & 6 @ 7pm and April 6 @ 2pm.
