Cottonwood Heights, Bountiful , and Park City Director Lacey Hixson started in Up with Kids at the age of 7 when her family moved to Utah. She played the part of “Annie”. She found her niche on stage, and went on to star in several plays in high school.
Lacey studied voice with Dean Kaelin for many years, before moving out of state to pursue her singing career. She studied with Steven Tischka, and made several recordings with him and other artists.
After many years of travel and experiences, Lacey returned to Utah and taught a summer drama camp with her Mom, and realized that the “high” you get from seeing your students on stage, is as incredible as being up there yourself. This is Lacey’s 15th year with us, and her charm and charisma has the students flocking back for more.
