Stacy Barton

STORY LEAD/EXPERIENCE DESIGNER

  • LinkedIn

I love a good story—hearing it, seeing it, shaping it, sharing it—how it comes to life with an audience. I thrive in all forms of collaboration and am known for my authentic approach to experience design, narrative development, and scriptwriting. For 22 years I’ve specialized in story development and strategy for themed entertainment, including major projects for Disney, SeaWorld, Ringling Bros. Circus, and others around the world. I’m also the award-winning author of eight books and 30+ magazine publications. My workshops, masterclasses, and creative consultation services are requested by entertainment companies, theaters, and educational organizations alike.

"Stacy knows how to become a part of any creative team and can provide answers where only questions existed before. She leads with a bright spirit and light that generates an energy that is contagious. When she is on a project, everyone’s work is better."

MARK HUFFMAN / CREATIVE DIRECTOR / DISNEY LIVE ENTERTAINMENT

"Stacy drives the creative process with a rare ability to create an atmosphere where everyone contributes and ideas flow freely, but the real magic happens when she is able to consider all the hurdles and solutions to deliver a plan, a treatment, or script that addresses our goals.  

DENNIS WIRZMAN / VP ENTERTAINMENT, CORPORATE / SEAWORLD 

"Where some writers/experience designers create by building layers over a period of time, Stacy came out of the gate with a solid first draft that only required some polishing to align with the development of the physical space we were designing. Her collaborative style was easy and proactive, always moving the story forward with new ideas and solutions. I highly recommend her for any project that requires story, performance, theme, or immersion—she definitely takes collaboration, teamwork, and the final product to the next level.”

THERON SKEES / PORTFOLIO CREATIVE EXECUTIVE / WALT DISNEY IMAGINEERING 

"Stacy is not only a brilliant, and award-winning writer – but a critical thought partner. Her creative writing is the catalyst that inspires the entire creative production team."

KEN MALQUIST / SHOW DIRECTOR / DISNEY EVENT GROUP

"I've worked with many creative people; Stacy is a true treasure. She has the ability understand the emotion, the goal, and the audience while transforming ideas into a story. I would embrace any opportunity to collaborate with Stacy, her abundant versatility makes her the perfect partner no matter the subject.

JANET WAGNER / EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR CREATIVE DESIGN / MGM RESORTS PRODUCTION

"Stacy gets it! It’s all about the story and she understands that your audience is critical to telling the most innovative, heartwarming, and compelling story."

RAY FOURNIER / SR. MANAGING PRODUCER / WALT DISNEY WORLD
