ALICE IN WONDERLAND
May 10-25, 2019
Adapted by Dave Alan Thomas from the original text for All Beaches Experimental Theatre (ABET), this production of Alice in Wonderland takes a whimsical journey through adolescent imagination and absurd adult expectations at a turn-of-the-century seaside resort.

Commissioned by Phase 8 Theatre in partnership with the Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville, this immersive theatre piece centers on three freshman art students whose experience of a semester long course unfolds over three acts and three stories of the downtown museum campus, including the third floor exhibit "A Dark Place of Dreams", featuring the work of Louise Nevelson.
Lauren Gunderson's national call to action against gun violence is a tour-de-force one-woman show that proves a wild ride with tragic laughter and raw emotion for both audience and performer. Proceeds from this performance were donated to Hubbard House Jacksonville.

WWII-set Shakespeare condensed to a heart-pumping two-hour ride. I am still approached at parties about how much people were spooked by and enjoyed this show at Atlantic Beach Experimental Theatre.

It was an honor and joy to direct this piece penned by my college playwriting professor, Laura Schellhardt, whose acerbic wit and silver tongue I envy always, and played by three tremendous actresses whom I took to an aikido class for research.

FREUD'S LAST SESSION

As director and sound designer on this project for the 5 & Dime Theatre Company, I enjoyed researching Freud and C.S. Lewis to bring their conversation to life as authentically as possible.

WAR PAINT: A SUMMER CAMP STORY
This original one act chronicles the night before summer camp ends: games are afoot, friendships will be tested, and hearts may be broken, all by the glow of the stars and in the beams of the flashlights. Offers colorblind and some gender flexible casting.

I wore many hats on this production: assistant director, actor, graphic media designer, voice over artist. Click through for photos of the ensemble as well as a projection of the fearsome, futuristic hound I designed.

AS YOU LIKE IT
I directed Shakespeare's As You Like It for Northwestern University's Lovers and Madmen as my senior thesis project, then again at the Episcopal School of Jacksonville that fall.
