Advocacy 

We know that representation is important, especially in today's political climate. We are loud and proud. While inclusivity is our goal, our roots are in the lesbian community.

meet the founder

Carol Wartenberg saw an opportunity to get women and lesbians, like herself, into the performing arts. A dream realized in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, LT was born out of the desire to connect with the arts and the community.

Carol serves as the Creative Director for the group, and also fulfills various other roles in the troupe such as play writer, director, and producer. 

Meet the board

Our board is comprised of influential women of the local South Florida community who believe in and embody LT's values of community, creativity, and advocacy.
