Hagley gave me a safe space to learn, fail and experiment when I was first starting out which I feel is vital for any young actor/performer.

HTC was the perfect foundation for a career in performing. My 2 years there formed skills and attitudes that I still use today. Writing, dance, acting and life lessons that spring boarded me into my career as a Comedian, Writer, and Actor. I loved my time at HTC and Cameron Mattox is the GOAT
