Wilde Ensemble

Lindsay Warfield,

Artistic Director

Lindsay M. Warfield is an award-winning director, designer, and producer with a passion for creative storytelling and ensemble-based, highly physicalized theatre. Her unique vision and search for beauty in this world has influenced her aesthetic and lent itself to a varied and transformative approach to directing.

Having trained with members of the SITI Company in Viewpoints and Suzuki; studied Literary Adaptation with founding members of the Lookingglass Theatre Company in Chicago; trained in Theatre for Community And Social Change with Micheal Rohd; and spending three seasons as a fly-on-the wall in rehearsals at the American Reparatory Theatre in Cambridge, MA (watching some of the greatest directors from around the world), her style is a unique blend of all she has seen and done over her 20 years of directing.

Lindsay is a leader in the Educational Theatre Community, serving as the State Chapter Director for Florida Thespians and producing the largest youth theatre festival in the world, bringing some of the top theatre and film artists in the industry to the City of Tampa each year. She is a trained Aesthetic Educator through the Lincoln Center Institute; and a National Arts Advocate. She believes Theatre has the power to change our society and to make us better humans.

Lindsay has her Master’s Degree in Directing from the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University and has taught as a guest artist across the country.
