Sam Hull

Few who knew Sam Hull growing up in the Midwest could have predicted what he would study in college, but most would have guessed performance of some sort. He studied music throughout his childhood and won various awards in vocal and saxophone performance. Hull spent his undergraduate years at Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois, earning two B.S. degrees, in theatre arts and communications advertising. From there he spent several years acting professionally, landing in Gainesville at The University of Florida where he became the recipient of a M.F.A. in Acting. A classically-trained actor and director Sam was the first graduate student to direct in the UF- Constans Theatre Mainstage Season and was named The Outstanding Graduate Student of the Year in 1996.

Among the dozens of plays and musical productions he has staged to date, Hull was responsible for the 1998 and 2000 "Sabre Latin America" extravaganzas at Walt Disney World and Miami's International Centre. His 2000 production of Patents A was awarded the Educational Program of the Year Award and he was also part of the team that produced "The International Casbah Fashion Show/Spectacle Performance Event" in Las Vegas.

Named to the Who's Who Among University Professors in 2005, Hull has taught the craft of acting and directing at St. John's University, Portland Community College, The Art Institute of Portland, University of Central Florida, University of Florida, Rollins College, and The College of St. Benedict. He has presented at the American Theatre in Higher Education Conference in New York City and is a member of the NYC Theatre League. As an actor, Hull has been seen in more than 60 productions, sung in numerous operas, acted in film, television and starred in national commercials.

Known for his intuitive understanding of women's material, Sam Hull was selected last year to direct the feature film, Not Dead Yet ( The film makes its World Premiere at the Rhode Island International Film Festival on August 7, 2009 in Providence.
