Ashley Bishop

Jefferson County Academy of Theatre and Dance
Director
Birmingham, AL
Ashley received her BA in Theatre from the University of New Orleans and her M.Ed. from DePaul University of Chicago. She is a native of Birmingham and a graduate of the Alabama School of Fine Arts (’91 Theatre Arts).



In New Orleans, Ashley worked as an actor (some favorite roles include Assassins, Jake’s Women, and Inherit the Wind), and as a set designer and scenic artist for Le Petite Theatre de Vieux Carre, Southern Repertory Theatre, Jefferson Performing Arts Center and others. It was at Le Petite that she met The Free Associates, a long-form improv group from Chicago, and decided to pack her bags and move north.



In Chicago, she worked in print, industrials and commercials (clients included Sears, McDonalds, Hammacher Schlemmer, and Altria), as well as continuing her stage work with companies including 16th Street Theatre, The Aardvark, American Theatre Company, Chicago Dramatists, Circle Theatre, Defiant, Footsteps, Northlight, and was an Artistic Associate with American Blues Theatre. She worked as a teaching artist with Timeline Theatre, American Theatre Company and Route 66 Theatre, which inspired her to return to school for her teaching certificate.

In 2015, after moving back to Alabama with husband Marty Higginbotham, she was hired as the Academy Director for the Jefferson County Academy of Theatre and Dance at Shades Valley High School.
