June through August
Michael Stebbins, Artistic Director
Michael Stebbins has appeared on regional stages across the country, from NYC [off-Broadway’s Mint Theatre Company and The Public Theater] to CA [Berkeley Repertory Theatre] and many states in-between. As a director, his work has been seen at summer stock, college and regional theatres. In 2005, after being based in NYC for 12 years, he was hired as the producing artistic director of Rep Stage, a regional theatre based in MD. While there he championed works of up-and-coming playwrights [Liz Duffy Adams, David Davalos, Will Eno, Stephen Karam] and also programmed long-forgotten chestnuts. Wisconsin credits include Chamber Theatre, Theatre Gigante’s “My Dear Othello,” “I Am My Own Wife,” and “Woyzeck.” Last summer he appeared in Optimist Theatre’s “Much Ado About Nothing.” In May/June of 2018, he will be featured in Skylight Music Theatre’s production of “Urinetown.” Michael received his BFA/MFA from UWM’s Professional Theatre Training Program. He is the recipient of a Helen Hayes Tribute Award for his work in the DC/MD/VA region, and is a member of Actors’ Equity Association.
