Meet Your Creative Director and Instructor:Blaire's-headshot-with-name

Amanda Blaire Spruill is a native of Raleigh, NC who grew up performing in musical and drama productions with her school, church and local community theatres. She taught music at Orange Christian School and Trinity Christian School in the Orlando, FL area. Blaire moved back to Raleigh to help start Journey Church where she has lead worship for the Kids Community for the past eight years.

With the birth of her children, Blaire became a homeschooling mother. She then pursued her dream of opening up her own studio, and Raleigh Area Children’s Theatre (Raleigh ACT) was born!

Nephew-and-NieceBlaire is an active and involved member of the local theatre community. In 2010 she acted in Raleigh Little Theatre’s production of ‘Light in the Piazza’ and played the niece in Theatre in the Park’s ‘A Christmas Carol’. She later completed a run in North Carolina Theatre’s 2011 production of ‘Evita’. Most recently, Blaire reprised her role as niece in the 2012 and 2014 Theatre in the Park production of ‘A Christmas Carol’.

Following her love of music, dance and fitness, in 2011 Blaire became a certified instructor to teach Zumba, Zumbatomic and Shabam. She offers these adult and children classes at her own studio and also teaches Zumba in partnership with other local studios.

Blaire is excited about Raleigh ACT because it blends two of her passions: teaching and musical theatre. She looks forward to helping your children develop their talents, while passing along her passion for theatre, music and fitness fun.

Evita 2011

What a blast it was to work with Lauren Kennedy, Ray Walker and the other cast members for this production. The entire NC Theatre staff was amazing to work with.

  A Christmas Carol 2010

 A lot of hard work but this is, since middle school, a production dear to my heart. Ira David Wood IV stepped in for his Dad this year and did a fabulous job as “Scrooge.” This was so much fun and sad that my schedule would not allow me to try out for the 2011 production.

I also enjoyed “Wilma” (Blaire Callaghan, the wife of nephew Fred) who has a voice I could listen to for a full-length production.
