The board of directors is made up of volunteers, just like all other positions at the theatre. We encourage others to let us know if they are interested in serving on the board. It takes a strong team to ensure our theatre lasts well into the future in an active and healthy state.
Board members are typically voted on at our annual members meeting each September. But, please, if you are interested in joining the board you can let us know at any time. Just call or email us. We’ll get back to you
One of Theatre West’s regular actors since joining in 1986, Wes has appeared in numerous shows. He has also stretched his artistic muscle and directed several shows and has now added to his dedicated service to the theatre by serving on the Board since 2017.
Patti joined Theatre West in 1987, and has been in at least 50 plays since then. She is currently involved with the Green Room and the membership newsletter, as well as serving on the Board. Theatre West literally changed her life when she met her now husband, Rich Emery, and got married on the Theatre West stage. We are like a family and a great family it is.
Rich has been involved with Theatre West since 2002. He not only acts and directs, but works behind the scenes as well. He’s been on the Board of Directors for several years serving as Vice-President and currently as Treasurer. He’s also Box Office coordinator and Prop Room organizer. You might have also seen him on the tall ladder outside changing our outdoor sign. Please, don’t fall, Rich!
Linda first volunteered at Theatre West in 2007; first as publicist and later elected to the board of directors as secretary. She was publicist for 12 years writing news releases and maintaining the Theatre West website. Many of the photos from plays during that time are Linda’s work, too. Linda’s new position of secretary seems to suit her well.
It didn’t take long for Debby to begin volunteering with Theatre West after her arrival from Montana in 1986; joining within 2 years! She started behind the scenes, as many do, but Jack Coyne (who could say no to him?) convinced her to take a part in “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” and she was hooked. Then on to directing, too. She left for 7 years in Santa Rosa where she took acting classes and performed there, but returned to Lincoln City in 2018 and picked up where she left off, oh, and joined the Board in 2020.
Danielle has been a part of Theatre West since the late 80s. Starting by helping out back stage and moving on to work in lights and sound, build sets, and then the big move to assistant director. In 2015 she directed her first show “Love, Loss and what I Wore”. She has since directed a few more shows, and has enjoyed being a board member since 2019.
Sandy was elected to the Board of Directors in 2019 without previously being involved with the theatre except in the capacity of a paying customer and theatre lover. Her focus has been on public outreach. Working on this website update was a huge learning curve. Whew. What a first year on the Board 2020 was!
