Our Team

Bruce Landow

President / Artistic Director

Bruce Landow, originally from Creve Coeur, MO., was always drawn to the world of theatre, film and music. Once a devoted "Theatre Kid" himself, he encouraged his daughter to engage in youth theatre from an early age as well, and would volunteer with her various community theatre productions(..and maybe a little bit of acting!). Despite pursuing a career in information technology, Bruce had always hoped to find his way back into theatre. After dedicating several months to finding a group of seasoned, talented, and all around wonderful people to help bring this idea to life, St.Louis Theatre Kids are now a reality!
