In the spring of 2019, a production of Pippin (featuring the notorious glowing goose) brought Founders Sarah Nowak and Lacey Eriksen together for the first time. What began as a director/actor relationship soon developed into a creative partnership.  Through continued creative collaboration, the pair realized a need for more exciting works in their community and in the theatre industry at large. They realized they had identical creative visions, but more importantly, the understanding that change in the arts begins in our hometown, with us.  

In an industry overflowing with talent and ready for originality, Glowing Goose Productions seeks to create unique, innovative theatre that celebrates intersectional identities and stories.


In the upcoming months, we plan to produce minor works that represent our company and mission, as well as continue to workshop Belladonna, an original musical. We intend to produce our first season, featuring three full-scale productions, beginning in the spring of 2022.

"Wait, that's all acting is? Getting up and saying lines? I can do that!" 12-year-old Lacey said.

An actor, prop mistress, dramaturg, and director, Lacey Eriksen has worked on numerous productions in Delaware and Pennsylvania, as well as served on the Board Of Directors at the Wilmington Drama League. Throughout her career, she has been drawn to productions that seek to break the barriers of convention and breathe new life into older works. She has a deep desire to create art that tells important stories, brings a new level of accessibility to theatrical spaces, and provokes thought. 

Lacey holds a BA in English with a concentration in Theatre from Lebanon Valley College. In her professional career, Lacey has worked for the Delaware Theatre Company and The Rep at the University of Delaware. She now works as a content coordinator for Tapp Network in Wilmington, DE.

After living in Boston for 10 years, Stephen is thrilled to be back home in Delaware to create some new magic in the theater community!

Music has been part of Stephen's life from a young age. He attended Cab Calloway School of the Arts and began his exploration into musical theater and voice, then attended Berklee College of Music for Vocal/Piano Performance. Whether it's music directing, acting, or collaborating on a project, you can be sure to find Stephen on stage.

Stephen has a huge passion for teaching piano and voice. His vision for his role within Glowing Goose Productions is to foster a nurturing environment for artists of all genders, races, shapes and sizes to come together to own their best authentic selves while working on projects that are fulfilling and meaningful. He will always encourage artists to push their limits and think outside the box in order to be the best version of themselves.

Sarah has worked in nearly every aspect of theater, from performance to props to production, but her great loves are directing and writing musicals. She has directed dozens of shows in Delaware and Maryland. She holds degrees in Theater and English from the University of Maryland and teaches at Cab Calloway School of the Arts.

Sarah believes that every production, whether it’s a new work or a classic show that has been produced thousands of times, is an opportunity to communicate a new message to the audience. Theater should be innovative and progressive, constantly pushing forward rather than repeating the same tired and outdated themes.
