Carrie has served as APT’s Managing Director since 2015. Originally from Platteville, Carrie’s career in professional theater has spanned 20 years and taken her around the Midwest and the East Coast. She has also served as Managing Director of Milwaukee Shakespeare, Associate Managing Director of Yale Rep, and has worked in administrative and artistic capacities at Milwaukee Rep, First Stage Children’s Theater, Milwaukee Chamber Theatre, Manhattan Theatre Club, and Chicago Shakespeare, among others. Her academic work includes three years on the faculty at Davidson College and several seasons producing theater and dance at the University of Minnesota. She currently teaches producing theater at UW- Madison. She holds a BA in Theatre History from Davidson College and an MFA from Yale School of Drama and resides in Spring Green with her family. She would like to dedicate her work this year to the memory of Lara Dalbey, Tommy Gomez, and Graham Smith, three exceptional artists who devoted their lives to the art of theater. And as we come back together after months at a distance, she remembers and thanks Tom Kuczmarski, Helen Anderson, Ida Wrenn, and all of the other beloved members of our audience we’ve lost since we last gathered in the woods. May our work this season, and every season, honor their spirits.
