Collaborative Artists Ensemble was founded in 2007 to create the opportunity for passionate theater artists to come together to create works that challenge and provoke both the artists as well as the audience. We strive to create an environment in which every actor can do his best work. We are fortunate enough to be able to produce only works that we are passionate about and aim for fearlessness in taking risks artistically. We are drawn to smaller shows that are less based on spectacle and more focused on psychologically complex characters and themes that allow the audience to see things in a new light.
We are pleased to have worked with two Emmy winners, performers who have worked in NYC and London as well as in regional theater.
CAE's founding members include: Jill Baker, Rachel Hardy, Trace Oakley, Shane Stewart and Meg Wallace.
