Adam Houghton – Biography

Adam Houghton joined the BFA Acting faculty at BYU last fall. Before that he taught acting classes and directed plays for 13 years at the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University in Minnesota. Adam graduated from BYU in 1996 with a bachelor’s degree in Theatre and Film with an Acting Emphasis. He received his MFA in directing from the Carnegie Mellon School of Drama. In addition to his MFA, Adam has pursued diverse acting training that includes traditional approaches as well as Biomechanics, the Noh Training Project, and Alba Emoting. He has a keen interest in mask making and performance and sees the mask’s primary function in communication as revealing more than it conceals.

BYU has had a profound impact on Adam’s life. Adam’s father grew up in a small mining town and his BYU education changed the direction of his life, lifting him out of poverty. He instilled this value of education in Adam from a young age. And it was at BYU where Adam developed as an artist, scholar, and disciple of Christ, integrating a love of learning, art, and the gospel.​ For Adam, the greatest theatre is that which reveals truth and strengthens the bonds between God​ and his children.

After serving a mission in Germany, Adam met his wife, Lori, on a blind date while they were students at BYU and their family has three girls who will surpass Adam and Lori in every way.

One additional Faith and Works lectures will take place during the 2016-2017 academic year. All lectures will be held at the BYU Museum of Art auditorium.

Faith and Works lecturers will

  • Describe their journey of faith within a disciplinary context
  • Demonstrate how artists and scholars can productively wrestle with big disciplinary questions in ways that exhibit mastery and rigor within their disciplines while also exploring, respecting, and fostering faith
  • Share creative or theoretical projects and work processes that grew out of spiritual issues, devotional inspiration, or gospel questions, and that also grapple in intellectually engaging ways with big disciplinary questions
