Kane Ashton

Acting and Film Teacher and Assistant Managing Director


– Acting and Film Teacher and Assistant Managing Director

Kane Ashton is a local writer, filmmaker, podcaster, and director who got her start in this very program. She’s loved telling stories for as long as he can remember, and some of her short fiction can be found in literary magazines such as The Storyteller and Occam’s Razor. Her debut (and therefore incredibly lo-fi) first feature film John Hughes is a Lying Bastard (starring many other CVDAA alums) will debut this December, and some of her other short films can be found in the depths of YouTube. Recently, she directed Superheroes by Ian McWethy for the Canyon Spring workshop, and the short film The Letter, as part of the middle school Summer workshop. She is currently working on The 12 Worst Breakups of All Time for the Creekside Fall workshop, and running the new CVDAA Improv team with Callan Marquart and Alex Borja.
