Julia Aubrey, Director of the Ford Center for the Performing Arts & UM Opera Theatre, and Dr. Robert Aubrey,  Instructional Assistant Professor of Music Education bring a wealth of experience to the Youth Music Theatre Workshop. This husband and wife team has collaborated on children’s theatre, university and professional opera and musical theatre productions for over thirty years.
