About Us

Founded by Canisius alumni Nicolette Navarro and Matt Lunghino in 2018, Bellissima Productions is an opportunity for local actors to share the impact of live theatre with audiences in multiple genres and versatile contexts.

We value artistry, authenticity, passion, collaboration, cura personalis (Latin for “care for the whole person”), dynamic theatre and education.

Bellissima Productions is a home for passionate, collaborative artists and seeks to educate members towards self-exploration involving all diverse talents and abilities. The company engages and challenges audiences with unique, dynamic theatrical productions by bringing new voices to the forefront.
