Meet Our Board of Directors

Passionate, focused and helping to save the world, one iamb at a time.

The Florida Shakespeare Theater's board of directors come from professions as diverse as University professor, Community Organizer, Accountant, Radio presenter, Marketer and Attorney. 

They hail from across South Florida and have one thing in common; they are committed and passionate about the mission of The Florida Shakespeare Theater. 

This a working board that is not afraid to get down and dirty, to pick up a power tool or paintbrush, sew on 25 snaps, or hawk tee-shirts, all in the name of providing access to classical theater to everyone - residents and visitors alike.

Each of our directors brings a unique point of view and skill set that benefits our organization and helps point us towards helping provide free professional productions of the works of William Shakespeare.

In 2020, we will be expanding our board of Directors.  If you have fundraising experience and are interested in serving on a working board, or wish to nominate someone, please contact Colleen Stovall at
