Louisville LGBTQ-Focused Production Company Plans ‘Monster’ Theatre Season

Pandora Productions announces its 2024-2025 season, and it’s a monster. Under the leadership of new artistic director Gil Reyes, the season will include “Little Shop of Horrors,” “Monsters of the American Cinema,” “Yeti for Love,” “She Kills Monsters,” and “Avenue Q.”

Reyes has a history of involvement in Louisville, particularly in the arts. After 10 years in Congressman John Yarmuth’s office, during which he was responsible for legislative and community service in the arts, federal grant assistance, and leadership on LGBTQIA+ issues, Reyes helped found Theatre Alliance of Louisville and served as co-artistic director of Theatre (502) for seven seasons. After six years on the Coordinating Committee of the Fairness Campaign (two as co-chair), he recently returned to their board. He also served on the board of the Walden Theatre before its merger to become the Commonwealth Theatre Center, as director of development for StageOne Family Theatre, and as senior director of community affairs for the Kentucky Science Center.

Reyes says the 2024-2025 Monster Season plays were chosen to appeal to diverse audiences “and explore themes that speak to the experiences of LGBTQIA+ people in a way that connects with people of color. Exploring intersectionality will continue to be a driving force in upcoming seasons to create dialogue, encourage empathy, and connect generations of theatergoers.”
