For 27 years, Carl Beery Moore has taught the theater arts to aspiring actors, actresses, playwrights and directors. Covering much of the Midland-Odessa region – Greenwood High School, Legacy High School, Trinity School and his latest, Odessa High School – the creative Moore has made his mark on the community, similar to the one he once called home. him.
Originally from New England – “born in Maine and raised in New Hampshire” – Moore moved to El Paso in fifth grade, staying in the border town until high school. In his early twenties, the artist began joining local theaters, acting in lead and supporting roles, and eventually landed a spot in the red director’s chair. With strong roots in acting, nothing seems more familiar to Moore than acting. So when Midland Community Theater reached out to the craftsman to direct the dramatic vision for its Fall 2022 musical production “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,” the choice seemed clear.
