Brian Brems is the Director of Development for the Limelight Theatre Company. Brian started with the company in 2001 as a volunteer technical crew member on The Hobbit, and followed by performing in his first Limelight show, The Crucible in 2002. He soon began to regularly perform and provide technical oversight, taking the position of Technical Director for Limelight from 2004 - 2009.
Brian's main contribution to Limelight has been as a writer and director of original productions. He first adapted Romeo & Juliet from Shakespeare's original script to fit a 1960s New York setting, and then served as head writer on the sketch comedy show The Limelight Holiday Bonanza, both appearing in 2005. He followed that by writing and directing his own adaptation of Leave the Gun, Take the Cannoli, a comedic farce about a theatre company performing a stage version of The Godfather. Brian also served as head writer on 2008's Positively One Acts and 2010's The Limelight 50th Anniversary Extravaganza.
In 2009, Brian teamed with fellow Limelight members Jeremy Wackerlin and Ben Wooley to write Limelight's first original musical production, Lumberjacks: The Musical! In the summer of 2011, Brian wrote and directed The Age of Fiberglass, a show about coming of age after graduating from college with little direction and few opportunities for young people.
As Director of Development, Brian is committed to furthering Limelight's devotion to premiering new, original works. Any writer interested in submitting a script for approval should inquire by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
