Aaron Kubey, the first Deaf Executive Director/President of the National Theatre of the Deaf, earned his B.F.A degree in Theatre Studies at DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois. Aaron was the first Deaf to graduate from this prestigious institution. Aaron co-starred in Breaking Through (now known as Beyond the Silence) with Kellie Martin and Jo Beth Williams and he also appeared on Ellen. He toured with the Model Secondary School for the Deaf’s Road Show to the Netherlands, Belgium, Puerto Rico, as well as the Eastern Seaboard of the US. More recently Mr. Kubey ran the New York Deaf Theatre Company. Last season, Aaron re-vamped and updated NTD’s workshops giving specialized training to the acting company. Tree Wise, the current Little Theatre of the Deaf tour, is the first to be helmed by Aaron, with many more in the works.
