About

Who we are!

Last summer's I & You cast and crew gather together for a group picture!

Back Row Theatre is all about family, fun, and opportunity. Back Row Theatre strives to give university level students the opportunity to continue their pursuit of theatre; it gives them the chance to work on and be in productions as well as provide the loving and freeing atmosphere that the performing arts offers. Not only does Back Row Theatre give these students back the creative outlet that so many of them had while in high school, it also prepares them in their pursuit for careers in acting by providing experience and knowledge about acting outside of school productions.

 

 

About Us!

 

Artistic Director: Kimberly Coyle

Kimberly Coyle has been teaching for 10 years now and is the Olympic Heights Community High School Fine Arts Department Chair and Director of Theatre, where her students have won several Critic’s Choice Awards, were selected as One Act District Representative, and granted the opportunity to tour their mainstage productions of Lost in Yonkers and Black Comedy to the Florida State Thespian Festival in Tampa. Before this, she spent her time teaching at Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts where she directed the South Florida Cappie Award winning production of 45 Seconds from Broadway. Some of her recent experience includes directing productions for Showtime, Rising Starz Music Academy, Center Stage, and the Winter and Summer Play Festival at New Theatre in Miami. Kimberly is a graduate from Florida Atlantic University with bachelor's degrees in both Theatre and Media Studies and has been fortunate enough to work with theme parks such as The Walt Disney World Resort as a cast member in their entertainment department and aiding in the opening of Wannado City as an actress and venue coordinator. Back Row Theatre has always been a dream of Kimberly's and she is thankful to provide university level students an opportunity to continue to hone their craft and love of theatre.
