Shenoa Cramer started acting when she was but a wee lass. After high school, she attended Abilene Christian University and graduated with honors with a BFA in acting and directing. Upon returning to Houston, Cramer signed up with Primo International Talent Agency and began a stint in the professional industry with stage, film, and modeling work. After the birth of her daughter, Carmela Grace, Cramer decided it was time to hang up the camera. “Theatre saved my life a long time ago, and after a great run, I want to give back to students who need me,” she says. Thus, she began her life as a Lobo!
Adam Taner Harris has been performing since he was 3 years old, way back when he had a thick Scottish accent. Acting his way through grade school, he eventually decided that the theatre is where he wanted to have a career. While attending the University of Arizona (Go Wildcats!) he discovered his passion for education. However, the acting bug that often bites got the best of him, and he spent his last bit of time at the U of A acting, both professionally and at the University. After graduating, he spent some time in New York City and eventually made his way back to Houston, where he took every education job he got his hands. That path eventually led him to Chavez High School, where he is a happy, zany, and articulate Theatre Arts Director!
