Laura Ballek Cole
CoLab Facilitating Artist
LBC is a lifelong weirdo who is passionate about equity, self-actualization, and snacks. She began a musical career at age 3 and has been singing, playing, writing and accompanying ever since. (Now entering her 4th decade, this is a really long time.) Theater was a natural next step due to a large personality and pathological need for attention, although, since college, LBC has been mostly behind the scenes, working as a musical director. With brief stints as a middle school teacher and a non-profit professional, LBC is now gigging for a living. Her dream for Theater Collab is that is will become an important third space in peoples’ lives, one that will provide meaningful connections, creative expression, and new ways of existing in the world. Peace and Progress to all!
