Lisa Cowan – Lisa has been active with Ardmore Little Theatre in the performance, technical, and administrative areas of the theatre for the past 20 years. Her experience on and off stage will be a viable asset for serving a non-profit organization. She has been employed by Ardmore Village for over 10 years as the Occupancy Specialist and Grant Writer. During her previous time serving on the board, Lisa was the Board of Directors President and Secretary. She has also served as chairperson for the Marketing Committee. Lisa would like to use her experience and networks to help Ardmore Little Theatre grow as a business and continue the tradition of quality live theatre in Southern Oklahoma!
Janie Herriott – Janie became heavily involved with Ardmore Little Theatre in 2009, then took time away to focus on her family and job. In 2019 she returned to stage manage ‘The Secrets of the Buttermilk Hotel’ and ‘The Best Christmas Pageant Ever’, as well as ‘Junie B. Jones is Not a Crook’ in 2020. She performed on stage for ‘Annie Get Your Gun’. Janie is involved in the community: she is currently on the board for the Dickson Foundation for Excellence in Education, and the Dickson School Board. She is involved with her church’s ministry theatre which she stage manages. She has been a Biotechnology Instructor at SouthernTech for the past 10 years. She loves ALT, and loves being able to be involved.
Donna Love – Becoming involved with the Ardmore Little Theater four years ago has been very rewarding and a lot of fun. Through five musicals and two plays it has been a privilege to get involved not only in the performances but also working on sets and costumes. Although this is my first time being involved with Little Theater I have always looked at a stage and wondered what I could do on or who could I put on it. There have been several children’s plays I wrote and produced, three fund raiser variety shows, organized a group of performers to participate in local festivals and events and was events coordinator for the Irving Texas Preservation and Main Street Programs.
Andrea Rhodes – Andrea Rhodes has been on the board for the last 3 years for two of those years she has been Vice-President. Andrea and her husband Dusty have a 5 month old daughter named Liberty. Andrea has completed her 13th year of teaching elementary school. She also has graduated this spring with a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership. Andrea has been in multiple shows with ALT since 2010. Andrea has been seen in Anatomy of a Murder, Dearly Beloved, Almost Maine and many other shows. She also helps with all areas of theater. Andrea is very supportive of the arts and loves to share her love of the theater with everyone she meets. Andrea is an invaluable asset to every member and is an incredible leader that brings excitement and reason to fellow board members.
Margi Thompson – My earliest memories of theater take place in Denver Colorado. The Denver Post was founded and run by the husband of Helen Bonfils. Helen had a love for theater, and every year she’d produce the Post Opera as her gift to the City of Denver. These productions took place in Chessman Park, which featured the beautiful outdoor amphitheater. Once a year, we would park as near to the park as possible, walk many blocks to stake our claim on the hill. We would sit on our blanket, eat our dinner, and eagerly await the production. This kicked off a lifelong love of the theater, and I have been involved either in the pit orchestra, on stage, or in those seats enjoying musicals ever since.
Jerrie Williams – I have been a member of ALT about 6 years. I have participated in 6 productions, helped with the Children’s Summer Theatre productions, worked behind the curtain with set painting and construction, props and prop-room organization, and recently learning set design from Carl Clark. As a retired occupational therapist assistant, I have filled my time with the joys of theater life, grandchildren, being a mother, and most importantly a wife to a great husband, along with my church involvment. Thank you for considering me as an ALT Board member.
