Claire Allen knows her way around a stage.
Not only has Allen acted upon that stage for Hardin County Playhouse, she also has painted sets and worked in various roles behind the scenes.
“I painted several sets before I started acting,” Allen said.
Additionally, Allen is president of the HCP board of directors. She has been a member of the board since late 2008.
Allen recalled that first role as part of an ensemble in an HCP production of “The Sound of Music.”
“I was a nun,” Allen said.
