Introducing Our New Contributing Writer Kaila M. Stokes!

Theater in the Now is expanding! And through expansion means new voices! Please welcome our first new writer, Kaila M. Stokes!

Kaila M. Stokes has been in the theater and dance world since she could walk. Kaila was part of theater programs growing up in Orlando & Jacksonville and went on to attend Douglas Anderson School of the Arts High School for theater, where she caught the directing bug. Kaila was a dual major in Directing and BFA Acting at Marymount Manhattan College, where she still guest directs to this day. Throughout her time in college, she worked as a marketing intern for numerous nonprofits around the city including MCC Theater, The Women's Project and American Opera Projects. After graduating in 2011, Kaila worked as the Marketing Associate for TADA! Youth Theater, then gave Los Angeles a try, working with Santa Barbara Dance Institute. After 2 years in Los Angeles, Kaila missed NYC and returned to TADA!, where she currently works as the Director of Marketing. Since establishing herself, Kaila is ready for new challenges, such as writing reviews for theater productions around the city and freelance graphic design. She is thrilled to join the Theater In The Now family.
