Nicole Goeden, Artistic Associate
After performing on tour with Stone Soup Shakespeare the past two seasons in roles ranging from royals to rascals, Nicole is thrilled to join the company as an Artistic Associate.
Nicole grew up in the small town of Dillon, Montana and discovered the joy of theater when she performed in her first community production at the age of ten: Lewis & Clark: Rolling Down the River, a musical. She participated in many other children's theater shows, and was then introduced to Shakespeare by an especially wonderful high school drama coach and director while acting in productions of A Comedy of Errors and The Merry Wives of Windsor. This sparked an immediate fascination with the Bard's work.
After spending her first year of college in a different field of study, Nicole followed her heart and completed her BA in theater at College of St. Benedict/St. John's University in Minnesota. While there she also had the opportunity to spend a Fine Arts semester abroad in London and attended several wonderful Shakespeare productions at The Globe and other UK theaters. Since then she has performed with various companies in Minnesota, DC, and the Chicago area and is excited to work more closely with Stone Soup to bring Shakespeare to broader audiences--a mission that is near and dear to her heart.
