Our artistic team consists of four brilliant women, whom I admire and respect for their talent, drive, and integrity. Erin Curran, our Resident Stage Manager, was one of the first students in our Adult Acting Course. She has since worked on two BOOM productions, As You Like It and The Seagull. Nora Breedlove, our Graphic Designer based in New York and Florida, has given us provocative and discussion-provoking designs. We look forward to her work on all three productions next year. Marlayna Demond, our photographer since the Prometheus Bound days, has documented our work with a keen vision and professional artistry. And Kayleigh Daniels' work as our Choreographer will only blossom as we anticipate an original work next season based on a certain Harper Lee novel.
Our ensemble now consists of three members in the Resident Acting Company- each member has committed to serving as a role model for other artists, supporting the growth of other artists, and developing their own craft through work with the company. Dustin Horsman, Kayleigh Daniels, and Jennifer Hasselbusch are joined by more than thirty actors who took part in a BOOM production this season, and we look forward to promoting this ensemble in the future.
Our Board of Directors consists of five members: Dawn Rowles, Kelley Dilworth, Laura Fox, Judy Scott, and myself. Every month (really, every day), we are faced with important financial and organizational decisions that require a balance between artistic courage and business acumen. This year, we've met and surpassed our goals. I know they will make sure our budget remains balanced and our work is held to the highest standards.
Since our inception, we have entertained over 1,300 audience members and taught over 800 students in free workshops. Our partners, sponsors, and patrons have made all of this possible. I want to thank each and every supporter for making our work possible. Thank you for believing in this vision. Thank you for sharing this dream. Thank you for spreading the word.
Happy holidays, from the entire BOOM family!
-Ryan Nicotra, Company Director
