Celebrating City Theatres 15th Year On The South Florida Stage Native Stephanie Norman Launches First Fulllength Musical
Written by Miami Today on June 17, 2010
While earning a degree in English and political science at Duke University, Stephanie Norman fell in love with theater and realized that was her calling.
She got the opportunity to work for award-winning producers in New York, learning how to produce plays.
After moving back to South Florida, Ms. Norman joined forces with an actress/director and playwright to produce local theater.
"We were three women who really wanted to shake things up here in South Florida," she said.
They created City Theatre, which found its first home at the University of Miami’s Ring Theatre and four years ago moved to the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts.
The 15-year-old theater group produces Summer Shorts, America’s Short Play Festival and this season is also premiering its first full-length production titled "Camp Kappawanna," a new musical about the joys of summer camp featuring Lisa Loeb songs.
Summer Shorts is running June 3-27 and "Camp Kappawanna" June 17-27.
Ms. Norman discussed accomplishments and plans with Miami Today reporter Yudislaidy Fernandez at the Adrienne Arsht Center.
