Jacob Rowe

Artistic & Executive Director

Jacob Rowe is an award-winning director and choreographer based in Mobile, AL! At the helm of The PACT Theatre Company, the organization has experienced year-over-year growth, becoming one of the top arts organizations in the state.

Jacob’s range of recent work includes Into The Woods, Mean Girls: The Musical, Legally Blonde: The Musical, Disney’s Newsies, The Marvelous Wonderettes, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and Matilda: The Musical and many more. Jacob was awarded Mobile Bay Magazine’s 40 Under 40 Award in 2021, the youngest to receive this honor at just 24 years old. In 2024, Jacob was awarded the Freddie G. Fellowship, a highly coveted honor. Created by Music Theatre International CEO and Tony Honors for Excellence recipient Freddie Gershon, the fellowship welcomes a select group of theatre instructors to be part of an all-expenses-paid trip to New York City each summer for the opportunity to work one-on-one with industry professionals in a weekend of seminars, master classes, and Broadway shows. Jacob has also received awards from The Mobile Arts Council, Visit Mobile and The Mobile Chamber of Commerce.

Growing up in Mobile, Jacob spent much of his time onstage at Playhouse in the Park and Chickasaw Civic Theatre and with the Mobile Singing Children and the Spring Hill Singers. In college, Jacob was awarded numerous dance awards, and his keen eye for detail led to a two-year tenure as the production manager of both The Alabama Repertory Theatre and Dance Alabama. He spent the summer of 2018 as an assistant director of musical theatre at the world-renowned French Woods Festival of the Performing Arts in New York.
