I am on the CCAC Board to… support the performing arts, especially live theatre, in Clinton County and beyond. We are fortunate to have the Wilson Center Auditorium as performance space in the city of St. Johns. The proscenium stage, outstanding acoustics, and state of the art lighting and sound systems not only honor the past, but prepare the space for an exciting future. I represent Homegrown Productions, one of the branches of CCAC.
My arts background includes… extensive volunteer experiences in community theatre and choral music. My first role in a play was on the Wilson Auditorium stage in Oklahoma!, produced by Clinton Community Players in 1989. Since then, I have worked on more than 80 productions with Lansing area community theatre companies as director, producer, actor, stage manager, costumer, set designer, properties mistress, running crew, photographer, program designer, and ticket seller. Just don’t ask me to dance!
Outside of the arts, I enjoy… retirement after a 37-year career at MSU; life with my husband on our farm in rural St. Johns; home improvement projects on our sons’ homes; furniture refinishing; and attempting to civilize our 3-year-old Labrador retriever.
