Summar Elguindy was born in Missassauga, Canada on a hobby farm. After a fox ate her dearly beloved pet chick, her family moved to Melbourne, Florida where she learned how to swim like a fish and hang ten with surfers. Summar holds a BA in both Psychology and Theatre from Eckerd College where she learned how to dress people in spandex and pass it off for theatre. After losing herself, finding herself, and losing herself again, Summar moved to CT to work for Hartford Stage as an education apprentice. She then became a freelance teaching artist, stage manager and director at Hartford Children’s Theatre. Summar is currently pursuing her Masters in Theatre Education at Emerson College in Boston. She loves her puppy, Penny.
