Board of Directors

The Center Stage Theatre board members are volunteers who make administrative decisions associated with the advancement of theatrical experiences in the Kalamazoo area through activities with Center Stage Theatre. Center Stage Theatre operates as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, with the board as its governing body. Potential board members are presented to the current board at an annual August meeting and voted upon at that meeting for a term of one to two years. Board members are expected to miss no more than three of the monthly meetings in any calendar year. A board member may stay on the board for any length of time, but administrative positions must be elected.
