Laura Vlach Licata


Laura Licata is a Southwest Florida actor, director and theater advocate. Her acting credits include Neil Simon’s Rumors for New Phoenix Theatre. Her directing credits include staged readings of Julia, Stop KISS, and The Routine, all at Laboratory Theater of Florida.

Laura also does important work advancing the interests and elevating the performance skills of actors and artists throughout the State of Florida. In this capacity, she serves on two art councils within Lee County’s schools (under the direction of Dr. Santini), serves on the curriculum committee of FATE, is  a co-coordinator for HSMTA and is the District 6 Chair for the Florida State Thespians (a post she’s held five years running).

The Florida State Thespian Festival is the world’s largest high school theater competition, giving more than 7,000 enthusiastic high school thespians and their drama troupes an opportunity to show their stuff alongside other schools from around the state each year. Over the course of three days, schools compete for mainstage awards in a series of public productions of various plays. The festival provides a great platform to showcase the work of budding thespians and encourage friendly competition in a fun learning environment. The experiences that participants gain shape the way they enter the world of theater following their departure from the education system. Recognizing that live theater is imperfect, the festival helps young artists develop their theatrical skills early so that they can go on to create their own incredible theater experiences in the future.
