CANDIDATES FOR THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
I am running for the board of directors with the intent of
running for the president's position. I have been a member of
the Pittsfield Players for 33 years and have served 12 years on
the board of directors previously including serving as
president, treasurer, and secretary.
If I should
gain election to the board I would like to see more shows per
year, the installation of a new ticket booth/concession stand as
well as a top to bottom cleaning/cleanout of the theatre, for
starters. I would like to see some classes take place for our
theatre family that includes how to audition, how to set and run
lights, how to direct, and general tips on performances
including the history of where we come from and the path we are
taking. I'd like to see the membership more involved by having
more of a voice and by holding monthly cleaning sessions at the
theatre so things don't fall behind.
I would like
to find a way to combat burnout by rotating positions within the
board and the membership. The list is long my friends, and I
would love to hear your ideas. I would appreciate your support.
If not elected this year, I will attend monthly meetings of the
board to give my input and I encourage all of you to do the
same. I would like to instigate some updates and follow through
on plans we may have all discussed but not had the energy to
pursue, regardless of whether I am elected.
