About Me

Sam Powers (He/Him) is a freelance lighting designer and stage manager from Bethesda, MD. He is currently working at the Florida Studio Theatre (for the 2023-2024 season) as a stage manager in their apprentice program. His most recent stage management credits include: Take It To The Limit, Creedence Clearwater Remixed!,The '70s More Than A DecadeDigital Dopamine, Call Me By Any Other Name, A Queer Deconstruction of Romeo and Juliet; Unstable Connections: Zoom Play Festival; Lessons of an Unaccustomed Bride, and “Cagebirds”. Assistant stage management credits include: Black Pearl Sings!Visit Joe Whitefeather (and bring the family!)The Telephone (Love & the Law) and various Dance Gallery productions. His recent lighting design credits include: Mutual Aid: The Musical by Ethan Philbrick, Firebringer: A Stoneage Musical by Starrkidd, Caryl Churchill’s A Number, and Euridies’ Medea. Sam’s more challenging and exciting productions have been within the realms of movement and dance. He loves working with directors to understand the story and world behind the movement, so that his lighting may elevate rather than detract from the overall story. Along those lines, collaboration and communication are his two favorite words, whether behind the lighting board or on the headset calling the cues. 


Sam is a Muhlenberg College graduate, with a degree in Theatre and Business Administration, focusing on stage management and technical theatre and design. When not in the theatre, Sam enjoys photography, skiing, and travel.
