Behind The Scenes: In The Board Room

by:  Lisa McColgan at 04/10/2010

The Huntington’s Board of Trustees met this past Wednesday evening, in the Rehearsal Hall of the Boston University Theatre.

Stick Fly playwright Lydia Diamond was on-hand to discuss the process of how she approaches the creation of her plays, her hopes for the future of Stick Fly, and her works currently in progress. Artistic Director Peter Dubois hosted the discussion like an informal fireside chat and Lydia spoke glowingly of the nurturing environment she has encountered here at the Huntington, as a member of our Playwriting Fellows initiative.

At the meeting, our new Chairman-elect, Carol Deane, as well as our new President-elect, Mitch Roberts, were unanimously approved.

Carol, a member of the Board since 2001, lives in Beacon Hill with her husband Disque and their two children. She is a patron of the Harvard School of Public Health and a member of the Beacon Hill Circle for Charity. Carol and Disque were honored with the Wimberly Award at the Huntington’s 2008 Spotlight Spectacular!, for their tireless support of the Huntington.

Mitch joined the Board as an Overseer in 1994, and was elected a Trustee in 1999. He is the owner of PR Restaurants LLC, a Panera Bread franchise and NEEPL LLC, the New England franchise for El Pollo Loco. Mitch and his family reside in Waban.

We are thrilled to have them “on board” in their new roles which begin in July.

For the remainder of the season, Board and staff will focus on meeting the Huntington’s fundraising goals, through both our 2010 Annual Fund Campaign, as well as the upcoming Spotlight Spectacular! to be held Sunday, April 25th at the Sheraton Boston Hotel. At the Spectacular, we will honor director Kenny Leon (who directed Fences and Stick Fly this season) and Bank of America with the Wimberly Award, the Huntington’s highest honor. The event will be hosted by stage and television actress Jasmine Guy, and basketball legend, Dr. J., will join us.

Ticket sales only cover 50% of our operating expenses and proceeds from the event, which will include a Silent and Live Auction, help to support our onstage work and off stage programs, including our award-winning Youth, Education and Community initiatives.

If you can't make it to the event you can join the fun by participating in our ONLINE AUCTION. Bidding is currently open on I've got my sights set on the Karaoke Party for 30!
