Co-Company Manager & Resident Stage Manager
Anthea has been a theatre lover from an early age, especially musical theatre. At the age of 9, she was privileged to see Jesus Christ Superstar performed in Sydney, Australia. Since then she has travelled the globe and seen many theatre productions in both hemispheres. She loves traveling to NYC to spend time on Broadway as well as to London's West End. Although she has done minor performances in school productions, both on stage and behind the stage, her talents lay outside theatre. After finally moving to Massachusetts, she decided to volunteer her time to help where she could.
Associate Artistic Director of the Acting Company and of the Adams Center
