Marcello Rollando Talks Boomie Pedersen’s Theatre Everywhere for Everyone
When she relocated to Charlottesville in 1995, Boomie became involved at Live Arts both as an actor (Scrooge, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Assassins, Edward the II, Copenhagen, Noises Off, Old Times and most recently August: Osage County) and a director (Three Tall Women, Buried Child, Play About the Baby, The Underpants, Glengarry Glen Ross). She also worked with the Nelson County Drama Foundation and mounted an outdoor production of Earl Hamner’s The Conflict at Mountain Cove Vineyard in 1998 and 1999. She has worked with Offstage Theater, Four County Players, Piedmont Virginia Community College, UVA’s Drama Department, Heritage Rep and Wintergreen Performing Arts. She taught theater at Renaissance School in Charlottesville for four years, served as an adjunct theater teacher at the Governor’s School in Fishersville and was adjunct professor of Acting and Directing at Randolph College in Lynchburg.
Boomie founded the Hamner Theater with Peter Coy in 2005 and has directed and produced several dozen productions there.
