Mary Ann Haupt began studying theatre at NCC while her youngest child was also in college. At that time, her experience and interest was musical theatre, but at NCC she found her heart lies in performing serious plays. She later graduated Summa Cum Laude with a BA in Theatre from Temple University and earned the Outstanding Senior Award.  

Since her graduation in 2005, she's been acting in local productions and teaching acting at the main campus. Her goal for students is that they not only learn the art of acting, but that they learn something about themselves and the world around them from the plays and the characters they take on.  Mary Ann also works part-time as an actor doing simulations for students working on degrees in health related fields at DeSales University.
