My Personal Mini-Bash
Why I Serve
I have been passionate about live theatre since I was eight years old, running the WW2-era wall-sized light board at my elementary school. I have always loved the magic coming to life in the darkened room, and I cannot recall a time when I did not want to be backstage making that magic. I was fortunate enough to persue theatre in school, and then to work as a professional stagehand with IATSE Local #15 for ten years. Although I no longer make my living as a stagehand, theatre is still central to my life. Now I am able to serve those who still make the magic in the darkened room through leadership, by serving as a member of Seattle Shakespeare Company's Board of Directors.
Seattle Shakespeare is a professional, all-classical, year-round theatre company that reaches across barriers of income, geography, and education to bring classical theatre to life for everyone in Washington State. Whether you're in a seat at the Center Theatre or on the grass at Luther Burbank Park or in a school auditorium in Wenatchee, you are part of Seattle Shakespeare.
Bill's Bash is Seattle Shakespeare Company's annual fundraiser, happening online for the very first time! Help me welcome new audiences, new students, new artists into this work by making a gift today, and by spreading the word. You'll keep these classic works alive in schools, communities, and on stage, for today and for the future!
