For over twenty years, Regi Carpenter, an award winning performer, has toured her solo shows and workshops in theaters, festivals and schools, both nationally and internationally.
Carpenter is the youngest daughter in a family that pulsates with contradictions: religious and raucous, tender but terrible, unfortunate yet irrepressible. These tales celebrate the glorious and gut–wrenching lives of four generations of Carpenters raised on the Saint Lawrence River in Clayton, New York. Tales of underwater tea parties, drowning lessons, and drives to the dump give voice to multi-generations of family life in a small river town with an undercurrent. Carpenter is a recipient of the J.J. Reneaux Emerging Artist Grant Award, a Leonard Bernstein Teaching Fellowship Award, and the Parents’ Choice Gold Award.
