This is a moderated discussion with the creator and director of Quaranteened, Cori Anne Laemmel, Artistic Director of The Theater Bug in Nashville, TN.

Director Statement: "Quaranteened was written and performed on lockdown - totally remote - from the homes of each young artist involved," says Theater Bug artistic director Cori Anne Laemmel. "Through Quaranteened, each actor, instructor and writer was reminded daily that while we are isolated, we are not alone. And the magic of theater is still alive. We are so excited to share this gift with the world."

Cori Anne Laemmel is the Artistic Director of The Theater Bug, a 501-c-3 non-profit organization in Nashville, TN. The company writes and produces original plays and musicals that address important social issues and provides free and low-cost arts education. Cori grew up in a youth theater program that was one of the most influential parts of her young life. She studied voice and song writing at the Musician's Institute of Hollywood before moving to Nashville in 2006. Cori has worked as a teaching artist for The Nashville Children's Theatre Company, The Nashville Shakespeare Festival, Studio Tenn Theatre Company, Metro Parks Nashville, Vanderbilt University, University School of Nashville and several other elementary and middle schools in middle Tennessee.
