• Founded in 1998 as New World Players, we produced original & alternative ensemble theater for over a decade – along with an art gallery and event space.

    I began working with New World as an Assistant Director and Lighting Designer in 2001, took over Technical Direction, and eventually became the Artistic Director from 2004–2007.

    Our shows included a mix of original devised work, local playwrights, re-invented classics, and more.
