If anyone knows the foibles of producing community theater and the challenges it inevitably thrusts on actors, directors and stage managers alike, it’s Scott. Carpenter has a B.A. in Theater from the William Paterson University and is a member of SAG/AFTA.

Carpenter was recently honored with the Cape Coral Community Foundation ENPY award for “2018 Nonprofit Volunteer of the Year Award” for his work with Lab Theater.

“I was humbled to be in the company of so many great individuals who do some remarkable work in our community,” says Scott of the award. The ENPYs showcase the extraordinarily hardworking individuals who dedicate time and talent within the nonprofit sector, recognizing the best executive directors, key staff, board members, and volunteers. Each award had three finalists.
