Personal Statement: My family and I have attended Shaw productions for many years, but I think a turning point was when we attended Mad Dogs and Englishmen several years ago. That was the presentation of Noel Coward’s 10 one-act plays all in one day. The day was a life highlight for all of us and made me realize what is possible when thinking about enhancing and expanding the audience experience. Shortly after that I joined the Board and have been immersed in Shaw ever since. It is an immense pleasure to be part of the execution of the current dynamic Shaw strategic plan that explores the theatre/audience relationship while enhancing Shaw’s sustainability!
