who we are

Playwright Michael Bettencourt and director Elfin Vogel have joined forces to form Block & Tackle Productions. B&T looks to collaborate with other creative individuals to explore different ways to tell dramatic narratives, such as live-streaming theatrical productions, recording radio-play podcasts, and creating short films for presentation and distribution.
