MEET THE HIVE
Lisa Wood, Managing Director/Theatre
Lisa Wood loves imagining the worlds and developing the characters in the plays she produces and has staged dozens of shows since earning her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Jacksonville University in Theatre and a Master of Arts in Education from the University of North Florida. Lisa has a million miles of imagination and a thousand shows she can't wait to produce. She has been playing pretend in the theatre since accidentally spitting a wad of chewing gum across the stage while singing a rendition of "All I Want For Christmas" while missing her actual two front teeth. She has been teaching children to be stars (and avoid her embarrassing mistake) since 2008. Mrs. Wood allows herself to be completely engrossed every time she steps into the theatre whether she is there producing or consuming. She is always completely overcome with the joy of her art.
