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.
