Kayla Prata

Business Manager 
New York

Kayla loves creating order from chaos – systems and organization are her jam. As business manager, she plays an essential role in helping Theatre Projects operate productively and efficiently. She’s responsible for overseeing our contract processing, managing our human resources, and keeping our information and project tracking systems up to date.

Before joining us, Kayla was assistant general manager of the groundbreaking dance troupe, Pilobolus, where she helped with the company’s branding relaunch, designed and automated the press archive database, and helped launch Pilobolus’ first arts festival. Kayla helped run the live preview of The Drowned Man: A Hollywood Tale at Punchdrunk Theatre Company (London). She spent three years working in the production department at Williamstown Theatre Festival (Williamstown, Massachusetts) and has also managed productions and company resources for the American Repertory Theatre (Cambridge, Massachusetts), Huntington Theatre Company (Boston), Goodspeed Musicals (East Haddam, Connecticut), and Virginia Opera (Richmond, Virginia).

Kayla received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in design and production with a concentration in stage management from Boston University. She has also been to every major doughnut shop in Manhattan. (Donut Pub’s maple bacon cronut is the best!) Kayla’s next goal is to visit all Disney theme parks around the world by 2022.
