  • She/Her
  • Biography

    Libby Hatton is a music director/arranger/orchestrator based out of Chicago, IL. She graduated from Northwestern University with a BA in Theatre, a Minor in Poetry, and a Module in Creating the Musical. At Northwestern, she took classes in music direction, theatre orchestration, classical orchestration, conducting, songwriting, and acting. She loves musical theatre and is excited to grow her career in music direction! Her favorite thing about music direction is that every show is different, which creates new challenges and opportunities to learn new skills with every project. Her favorite music directing memory is figuring out how to set up, mic, and mix a pit by herself!
