Mr. Joseph Lee Burnam

Welcome to Rockwall High School Theatre! My name is Mr. Joseph Burnam.

I serve as the RHS Theatre Director and RHS PAC Manager. My classes include Theatre 1, Advanced Theatre 2-4, PAC Management, and Spotlight Productions.

I am a graduate of Abilene Christian University, where I hold a BFA in directing for the theatre. I have previously served as a fine arts instructor and Performing Arts Director at Dallas Christian School in Mesquite, TX. I have worked as director, music director, technical director, actor, and theatre artist for over 15 years throughout the metroplex.

I love the theatre family we are fortunate enough to have here at Rockwall HS, and I look forward to preparing our students for a life in love with learning and an appreciation for the hard work and fun theatre has to offer!
