Amber Frederick


Contact Amber:

Amber is a born and bred Minnesotan, hailing from the city of Mankato. She found her passion for theatre at an early age, through community theatre. Amber believes in the power of storytelling and creating together. When it came time to make the transition from high school to college, their route led to Minneapolis where she could pursue a degree in Theatre at the University of Minnesota. Here, they found their connection to youth work, social justice, and using the arts to explore these concepts. Amber loves anything that puts her in a room with other people and gets them working together. Collaboration is key! When she is not in rehearsal, Amber loves to get out around the city, go dancing, and watch documentaries. (She also loves hearing your restaurant recommendations!)
