Co-Artistic Directors

Imprint Theatreworks was co-founded by Ashley H. White and Joe Messina, who found they shared the same ensemble-based ideas for theatre, based on their roots in New York and Chicago, respectively. White and Messina found themselves both excited at the idea of a new theatre company that focused on ensemble-driven pieces that speak to the honesty and raw emotional power of the dramatic arts. Thus, their partnership and Imprint was born.
