Lena Wallace

Teaching Artist

Lena Wallace Black was first introduced to Chatterbox in 2012 when she participated in two live performances (Sorry, Wrong Number and The Adventures of the Thin Man)at the Clovernook Center for the Blind, and has been hooked ever since. Lena is the Outreach and Education Manager at Theatre Memphis, which has led her to many exciting collaborations with Chatterbox over the years. Lena has enjoyed lending her voice to recorded shows, touring live radio plays to schools and libraries around the Mid-south, adapting scripts into an audio format, directing actors, creating artwork for shows, and even teaches sound effect workshops for Chatterbox from time to time. Lena is an Ostrander Award-winning actress that can be seen performing in many venues around the Memphis area. Lena owes a lot to Chatterbox, including having the opportunity to meet and star opposite one of her personal idols, Tom Kenny (the voice of Spongebob Squarepants) in Robots, Vampires, and Satellites in 2012.
