We are fire & Light Productions

Fire and Light Productions is a faith-based theater and production company created to engage and inspire a love of the human story among audiences and artists.We started as a youth theater troupe back in 2009 and after years of hard work and tremendous growth, we felt the call to reach out to the community. Fire & Light Productions was born as we performed our first community show, Our Town, directed by Stacy Munsie, in November of 2016.

Acting

Taught by Lorraine Knox, these classes will focus on relaxation, movement, sense memory, and monologue work.  The goal is to increase the skills in your actor's toolbox.  Each actor will be expected to learn and perform monologues for class.  Classes are for actors 16 and up, but material must be kept within a G to PG-13 rating.  Actors should bring a yoga mat or equivalent, as we will be doing floorwork on occasion. 

Lorraine has been doing theatre for the majority of her life in one capacity or another, starting with church dramas and most recently working as a voice-over artist in her home studio.  With an MFA in directing, she moved to Fort Wayne years ago to teach at IPFW.  Since then, she has acted, directed, produced, written, and worked behind the scenes in both professional and amateur productions, on stage and in front of the camera.  Coaching and teaching actors is one of her favorite things to do.
