Helen DeMott (Artistic Director) For more than 10 years, Helen has been involved in performance both on stage as well as behind the curtain.

In 2013, Helen earned a degree in Theatre and Production from Darton State College where she focused not only on acting and performing but studied prop and set design as well as costume creation.
Helen has worked as a Team Leader with ActUp! and Albany Junior Theatre Summer Camp mentoring students in theatre etiquette and coaching them to produce several one-act shows. Helen has also served as Youth Coordinator and Choreographer for productions at Darton State College including The Wizard of Oz and Shakespeare’s As you Like It. Helen made her Athens theatre debut as the Queen of Hearts in the 2016 Rose of Athens production of Alice in Wonderland and is excited to continue working with Rose of Athens.
