Carol Kassie

Carol Kassie has had a deep and abiding love for the arts, particularly theatre, since she was a small child and her parents presented her with an original Broadway cast recording of "My Fair Lady". Armed with a degree in Theatre from Sir George Williams University (now Concordia University) in Montreal, Canada, she became …a librarian. She spent 30 years in Ottawa, Canada, raising two children with her husband, Ralph, working first as a librarian and then in the family's Army/Navy business, all the while actively participating in many of the Ottawa Community's cultural events. A move to South Florida in 2001 offered her an opportunity to return to her first love, theatre, and she jumped at the chance – she currently does freelance theatrical marketing, public relations, and audience growth and development for various local and national theatres, theatre companies, and cultural organizations,  She is a past president of the South  Florida Theatre League and and is a member of the South Florida Press Club, the National Society of Arts and Letters, and the Gold Coast PR Council.  www.carolkassie.com
