The late C. Warren Robertson was a retired theatre professor and director who had acted in numerous community and college productions, directed over 50 plays, and written a dozen original scripts. As a child growing up in Tennessee, Warren enjoyed dramatic play in a "jungle" on a vacant lot near his home. The lot was eventually cleared with the Carousel Theatre being constructed, and the young thespian continuing his acting there, this time with an audience. Warren acted while completing a B.S from The University of Tennessee, an M.F.A. from Tulane University, and a Ph.D. in Theatre from Florida State University. He had served as a professor and theatre director at The University of the South, Texas Woman's University, The University of Southern Mississippi, and East Tennessee State University.
