Horse Cave’s Dynamic Duo

Warren Hammack It takes a person with vision to build on theatrical tradition and to keep that tradition alive. Horse Cave Theatre founder and Artistic/Producing Director Warren Hammack has that vision. It’s an asset that he both understands small-town life—he grew up in Sturgis, KY—and has been around the dramatic world some, too.

Warren studied at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art as a Fulbright Scholar and was a Danforth Fellow at the Dallas Theater Center. He has worked with Jon Voight in Hamlet and A Streetcar Named Desire and has performed in such classics as Inherit the Wind, Of Mice and Men, Shadowlands, and Waiting for Godot. He has made numerous guest appearances as an actor on network television, including episodes of The Virginian, Ironside, and The Mississippian, and he’s been seen on KET in both performing and administrative capacities, appearing on In Performance at the Governor’s Mansion and Mixed Media. He has been the artistic/producing director of Horse Cave Theatre since its opening in 1977.

Pamela White Pamela White, Warren’s wife, has been a versatile member of the Horse Cave Theatre company, both on stage and off, since 1977. A graduate of Smith College and the Yale University School of Drama’s Theatre Administration Program, she has worked in the areas of financial management, long-range planning, and development. She also has directed the world premieres of Piggyback and The Dancers of Canaan; directed and designed sets for The Boys Next Door and Marvin’s Room; and played roles in numerous productions, including Bus Stop, Dancing at Laughnasa, Macbeth, and The Tempest.

She and Warren began dating after the original Horse Cave production of Candida closed; they married in 1979. In KET’s field trip, you’ll see her rehearsing for the 25th-anniversary staging of the play that started it all—for Warren and Pamela, and for Horse Cave Theatre.
