Lab Theater project

The Lab Theater Project in historic Ybor City is a production company focused on producing new works in the Tampa Bay Community.

One of my favorite things about Lab Theater Project is that they produce shows from emerging playwrights. I have seen several of them and love that they also provide new artists a place to develop and work on their craft.

Although I have not worked on stage with the company, I call many of them my friends. Lab has helped me hone and work on my photography skills by providing me the opportunity to photograph some of their productions.

This year, Lab Theater Project found a new home at 812 E. Henderson Avenue in Ybor City. They have opened their doors with health and safety policies in place.

Don’t hesitate to check out their website and if you are not attending shows now, I know a donation would go a long way.

The Tampa Repertory Theatre

As an actor, I have a special place in my heart for classic plays. When Tampa Repertory Theatre came to town, I was so excited to see the shows on stage that I studied in detail at AMDA (American Musical and Dramatic Academy) in NYC.

Although I auditioned for many, I was not chosen, but still attended performances that made me giddy. Tampa Rep also presents new plays and those have become some of my favorites as well.

In 2015, I was cast in one of their contemporary shows for TRT2, that was presented at the Silver Meteor Gallery, Bethany.

Presently, Tampa Rep has postponed their season and are devising new virtual and socially safe programming. I look forward to possibly, collaborating with them in the future.

Please visit their website when you have a chance and donate what you can, they are a wonderful theatre company.
