Shannon Campbell: Communicating truths

Shannon Campbell’s love affair with the theater began in third grade, when she got a laugh from the audience in a school play. “I still remember the thrill,” she says. A theater degree from University of Southern Maine and a stint at Circle in the Square Theatre in New York City prepared her for a thriving career on the Portland arts scene. “I try to find the truth of my character and communicate that truth to the audience,” she adds.

A company member and veteran of numerous Mad Horse Theatre productions, Campbell drew accolades for her portrayal of the troubled Mash in this spring’s Chekhov send-up, “Stupid F*ing Bird.” The Cumberland resident and mother of three has also appeared in the PortFringe theater festival, Damnationland horror film fest and a Space Gallery production of “Killer Joe.” This September, watch for her in Mad Horse’s staging of “The Totalitarians” – it’s “perfect for the election season,” she says.
