MEET OUR STAFF

 

Emily Godfrey - Artistic Director

 

I was approached to direct my first play because nobody else wanted to do it. I had no experience, and I was handed an opportunity. 

That's the mission here.  If you're going to drive, eventually someone is going to have to hand you the keys. By pairing professionals with hopefuls, we empower those without formal experience to truly learn.

 Here I am pictured in a very directorial scarf, confirming all scarf-related director stereotypes.

A great collaborator and friend, Louis penned our most recent original play, The Hulk Can't Perform CPR.
