Mimi Rankin Webb's Bio:

Mimi Rankin Webb is a professional artist, working within the community theater and haunt industry where she is able to express herself creatively using a wide range of techniques whether it be scripting for the stage, costuming haunt-icon characters created especially for Gas Light Players annual Shocktale Show, or even creating props and scenery out of up-cycled media.

Mimi has been an active part of the local community theater Gas Light Players since 1989, performing in various aspects and roles within the theater and currently serves as President of the Board as well as Writer, Director and Designer of the theater's haunted attraction, "Gentleman Death's Shocktale Show."

Festival performance art is also one of her favorite venues.  Mimi has performed at Four Winds Renaissance Festival as well as served as their Casting Director from spring of 1997-2000, moving on to performances with Scarborough Faire and later as a paid performer with Texas Renaissance Festival Performance Company from 2000-2005.  Most recently, Mimi performed at the State Fair of Louisiana as "The Artist" who creates Gentleman Death's Shocktale Show, performing in front of Gas Light Players Box Office during the Fair.

Mimi Rankin Webb has been involved with the Haunt Industry since 1989, beginning as a cast member with Gas Light Player's "Terror Show".  Also, she has worked nationally with the Chateau du Macabre and The Dungeon attractions in Texas.

As of 2007, Mimi chose to focus on Gas Light Players unique terror show, immersing herself into all aspects of the show & its production where she currently scripts, direct and creates costumes, props and scenery each year. 

Death truly has become her art as she enjoys not only writing in the unique style of the Drew Hunter created Dr. Blood shows, but also creating the various unique characters and visual art to display within the haunted attraction itself.  Photographing her scene designs and bone sculpture pieces has also become a passion of Mimi's as she documents each year of the show.

From 2007-2011, Mimi Rankin Webb has had the pleasure of writing anecdotes of her children's antics and shared Mommie advice for the national MomsLikeMe.com website, the RedRiverMomsLikeMe.com website and its advice forum.  As Mother to 7 year old triplets and a Teen, Mimi has had several of her pieces published locally in the sister magazine Red River Moms, LaParenting and also printed in the local paper, The Shreveport Times.

Mimi's work with Gas Light Players "Gentleman Death's Shocktale Show" is featured in the new book by Bonnye Stuart, "Louisiana Curiosities:  Quirky Characters, Roadside Oddities and Other Offbeat Stuff" which made its debut in November, 2012.

Locally, Mimi has displayed her visual artwork in the Shreveport Regional Arts Council exhibition "Critical Mass" and at the Bossier Arts Council exhibition "The Undead: Exploring the Mythologies and Histories of Zombies, Vampires and Ghosts."
