Progressive Perspective Theatrical was founded in February of 2015, by Licensed Social Worker April Haugabrook. In Ms. Haugabrook's 8 plus years of experience in the Social Work field, she has been honored to service Client’s in the areas of Trauma, Substance Abuse, Mental Health, and Geriatrics. Ms. Haugabrook realized early in her career, that she was expected to assist Clients with current problems that were either caused or amplified as a result of unresolved experiences. She felt that addressing the outcome and neglecting the cause was detrimental to the long-term success of her Clients.
Ms. Haugabrook has over 15 years of theatrical experience, including but not limited to Poetry, Playwriting, Acting, Dance, and Directing. She received training in Theater Arts and Social Work from Virginia State University and The University of Akron. Through merging her education, experience and passion, she found her purpose.
