Barbara Carroll Rogers has been in the entertainment industry for more than 30 years. Upon graduation from the University of Evansville, Indiana with a degree in Theatre she moved to New York and began her career in the production of Industrial and Corporate Media shows. Working with top Broadway talent—directors, choreographers, composers, lyricists, dancers and actors—was an exciting introduction to the vast world of performing arts and media. She has continued to keep her hand in this area throughout her career as a freelance Associate Producer, Producer and Writer of numerous productions. After four years in New York the time was right to move to Los Angeles where Barbara spent over 14 years in the production of primetime and syndicated sitcoms. Working with the top producers in Television she was a Script Reader and a Script Coordinator. While living in L.A. she was delighted to return temporarily to New York and her theatrical roots to be Production Coordinator on the Off-Broadway play, “The Butler Did It,” which ran for six months.
Happily returning the east in 1989 to live in Connecticut, Barbara continued in the business. She was Script Coordinator on the “Hi Honey, I’m Home” series for Nickelodeon shot at Universal Studios in Orlando, Producer of the cable pilot “Governor Phoebe” shot on location in New York City, and Co-Producer on the documentary “Rim Of The Sea: A Voyage on the Intracoastal Waterway.”
Embarking on a new aspect of her career, she has been an adjunct instructor in Scriptwriting and Public Speaking at Middlesex Community College for the last 14 years. She has been Producer for the Media Arts Workshop at MxCC. Projects included the half-hour sitcom pilot “Long Distance” and “Woman In Charge,” a CPTV docudrama. More recently she was Producer for the cable pilot, “Twist Of Lemmon” starring Chris Lemmon and his wife Gina. For the last seven years she has been Writer/Producer for two Telly Award-winning instructional videos for the Department of Environmental Protection through the MxCC Corporate Media Center. She is presently working on the third installment of the series.
Barbara is married to Director/Producer Doug Rogers.
