Tess Hemmerling

Young Duke of York in Richard III

Tess has performed in nearly a dozen productions with the Ashland Children’s Theater and studied at the Utah Shakespeare Festival’s Playmakers in 2012 and Houston’s Fine Arts Camp for two years in a row. During her time in Utah, she volunteered at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, which sparked her idea to start her own program, Peace for Pets, last year at Walker Elementary School, where students collect pet food for low-income and homeless people so they can keep their fluffy companions.
