Ashley Sparks

She is a freelance southern theatre maker, engagement strategist, facilitator, curator, and producer. I have worked across the US and gracefully switched hats depending on the job, cause, or client. Cities like New Orleans, Wilmington, Stuarts Draft, Milton, and Baltimore have pieces of my heart.

As a theater maker I’ve worked nationally with companies such as Cornerstone Theater Company in Los Angeles, ArtSpot Productions in New Orleans, and PearlDamour. As a director I prefer making site-specific devised work and participatory events that may involve line dancing or gospel singing. Or other things that instigate giggling and joy.
