Meet the Directors

T3 Founder & President: Morie Williams

Morie

Originally from Los Angeles, Morie grew up in San Jose California where he found a love for performing with San Jose Children’s Musical Theater. Morie has performed his way across seven continents and over 200 counties.

Morie has always believed that when a performer gets to a certain level in their career, they should help someone else along the way. Thus, T3 Triple Threat Youth Mentors was born. Some of Williams credits include performing in events with the likes of Lorna Luft (daughter of Judy Garland), Chita Rivera, Oscar-winning actress/singer Jennifer Hudson, Latin pop-star and American celebrity Charo, Marty Thomas from the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical Wicked and the late Nell Carter of the Broadway musical Ain’t Misbehavin’.

He received his BA in classical vocal performance from the University of Alabama in Huntsville with a minor in theatre arts. He then moved to Los Angeles and graduated from Cal State LA with an MFA in television, film, and theatre acting. Along the way, he has worked with so
me incredible groups including Deaf West Theatre Company, the nation’s premier company creating performances inspired by Deaf culture and ASL, and the Circle Squared Collective (founding and active member), a bi-coastal ensemble-based acting company specializing in devised theatre created through Moment Work (Tectonic Theater Project). He has been performing professionally for fifteen years, coaching private voice for over ten years, and working as a music director for the past six years.

T3 follows the new California State Board of Educations Arts Standards for public schools. Through implementation we’re able to meet and exceed the requirements of our state for public schools.
