LauraEllisLaura Ellis
Laura has been a Looking for Lilith company associate since 2011. She handles most of Lilith's sound design needs and has appeared in Crossing Mountains and one incarnation of Fabric, Flames and Fervor: Girls of the Triangle. Laura has also performed locally with Pandora Production, Finnigan Productions, ShoeString Productions, and more. When she's not making sound or making a spectacle of herself on stage, she's making news radio at 89.3-WFPL. When she's not making theatre or radio, she might be found making noise with Billy Goat Strut Revue, a band that plays Prohibition-Era jazz while burlesque dancers shake what their mamas gave 'em. When she's not making any of those things, she can often be found making tiny dogs shake her hand in exchange for cookies.


Ebony JordanEbony Jordan
Ebony has performed in several shows with Looking for Lilith including Becoming Mothers, Class of '70, and Luz. Her ties to Lilith, however, go back to her days as a young 20-something-year-old when she first met Shannon and Trina through the arts organization Alternate ROOTS. Since having met these two ladies, she graduated with her A.A. and B.A. in theatre from North Georgia University (formerly Gainesville State College) and Brenau University respectively. She then moved here to Louisville to pursue her M.F.A. in Performance at the University of Louisville. Throughout, she's worked with several different theatre companies, including a tour with the Alliance Theatre located in Atlanta, Kentucky Shakespeare, and Walden Theatre. One of her many draws to theatre is its ability to bring together and change communities...which she hopes to experience with Lilith.
