Bio "I like that entering MSU freshman can get right to work on Theatre and Dance projects. There is a great ensemble atmosphere from the minute students walk in the door. Often, almost the entire program is involved in a single project: a dance concert, a musical, or student-directed plays."
Greg Carlisle teaches Introduction to Theatre, Voice and Articulation, Dramatic Literature, and Acting courses in the Department of Music, Theatre, and Dance at Morehead State University. Directorial credits for MSU include The Seagull, Endgame, The Learned Ladies, and Three Days of Rain. The recipient of a Master of Fine Arts degree in Acting from the University of Louisville, Carlisle has taught theatre courses throughout the state of Kentucky. He has worked extensively with the Kentucky Shakespeare Festival in Louisville, where from 1996-2002 he appeared in Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, Twelfth Night, The Taming of the Shrew, and Macbeth. Greg is the author of Elegant Complexity, a study of David Foster Wallace’s 1996 novel, Infinite Jest; was an invited panelist at a Wallace tribute event at the University of Arizona in May 2009; and delivered the keynote address at the Consider David Foster Wallace conference at the University of Liverpool in England in July 2009.
