Introducing Limelight Theatre’s New Executive Director!

“What a thrill to be coming to a community already so supportive and involved in the arts. As a storyteller who very much feels called to what I do, I realize and appreciate what a rare opportunity it is to join a group of theatre lovers who are so committed to bringing truth to life on the stage. I consider it one of my greatest honors thus far to be asked to be the next Executive Director at the Limelight, following in the footsteps of someone so loved and gifted as Beth Lambert. I am so excited to continue to build on what has been established and get to know and serve the beloved St. Augustine community.”
