John Schreiber was recognized as the Theater Educator of the Year at the annual fall convention of the Communication and Theater Association of Minnesota in St. Cloud on September 15, 2012.

'I was honored and touched by the award," Schreiber said. "I am just one of many fine directors in the state. When I got the award I accepted it as a shared award."

His wife Marilyn was taping the presentation as he said,"Producing plays is a collaborative effort. You need a support system. I want to thank my best supporter and collaborator, my wife Marilyn."

He had been teaching for a year when he married her and she joined him behind the scenes. After several years she became his number one costumer.

He is a graduate of Hamline University and began teaching English ad directing plays at West Concord High School in the fall of 1976, straight out of college. His first play was 'If a Man Answers,' a basic high school play. This is his thirty-seventh year.

"I learned from my mistakes," he said. "I started teaching at Triton after the consolidation of West Concord, Dodge Center and Claremont in 1990.'

He wasn't a high school actor. His first ventures on stage were church skits. He was in cross country and track.

Some of his favorite musicals are "Man of La Mancha," "Fiddler on the Roof," "Oliver," "Big River," and "Joseph and the Many Colored Dreamcoat."

In the early days he taught English, was the assistant speech coach, the junior class advisor and directed three plays.

"It was insane, but that's the way it was," he said. "You have more energy when you are young."

"Arsenic and Old Lace" "
