About Wild Salamander
Founded in 2012 by KC and Charlie Morgan
Wild Salamander Creative Arts Center is a family owned and operated arts center with roots in the community. Our primary goal is to bring artists and community members together through creative experiences. We strive to become a gathering place for celebrating the creative spirit through education, exhibition, and commerce where people of all ages can come to learn, develop skills, discover something new, and support local art.
KC’s love of the arts and joy for teaching have brought her through the trenches of the professional theater, craziness of the classroom, and the unpredictable world of parenthood to the opening of Wild Salamander. Education includes BFA in Theater Management and Design from Ohio University. She has run production staffs, union crews, and managed tours in Chicago, Cleveland, The Berkshires, The Cape, and NH. Earning a Masters in Education from Lesley University focusing on Special Education, KC spent eight years teaching and learning in a Kindergarten classroom and four years teaching young teachers curriculum design and assessment. KC is excited to bring arts close to home!
In addition to working to create Wild Salamander, Charlie is currently employed as Senior Designer at Mystic Scenic Studios, in Norwood, MA. His summers are spent on the other side of the mountain designing sets and props for productions at The Peterborough Players. He has over 20 years in theatrical and exhibit design experience. He has over 150 professional theater design credits, and his clients have included The National Park Service, New England Sports Network, Boston Museum of Science, and a variety of independent museums. He has lived in Hollis for over 20 years and is excited to be giving back to his community through this creative endeavor.
