Mike Ash – President Elect

“I am proud to lead an organization that brings top-quality performing arts to thousands of people each year. For many, this may be the only opportunity to experience this caliber of theatre at an affordable price.”

Kevin Sule – Treasurer

“I want to serve on the Lebowsky Center Board because I want to contribute to an organization that makes a genuine impact within the community.  Supporting the arts is something I have always been interested in, and I hope to continue the positive energy that has been created with the theater.”

Michael Windnagle – Secretary

“Without creative ways to express ourselves and our emotions, we would be no different than any other animal on the planet.  Why and how we connect with one another is more important than any other human need, as far as I’m concerned. The performing arts provide us with that context, that vehicle. I’m on this board to make a positive difference in this community. My family lives here and I owe it to them to do my best to provide a space for them to grow to be their best selves.”

Dana Clark – Past President

“I am involved with Lebowsky Center for Performing Arts because I love theatre and feel fortunate to be part of an organization that brings culture, artistic expression and entertainment to a community that wishes to grow and prosper. Community theatre is a place where diversity of age, culture, thought and life experience comes together and offers opportunities for anyone who has the time to give.”

Dean Bolton

“Performing arts offer shared experiences that bring together people on a joyful and thoughtful journey. I am excited to be involved with the Lebowsky Center for the Performing Arts Board on their journey providing outstanding theatrical experiences! It is an honor to be part of a group that has such great positive impact both locally and regionally.”

Quentin Brainerd

“I joined Lebowsky Center for Performing Arts because I saw a community I wanted to be a part… a group of people I wanted to get to know and call my friends, and I have not been disappointed!  When offered the opportunity, I joined the board because I wanted to make a real difference in the organization, not just on stage, but behind the scenes, helping plan and execute sustainability for the years to come!”

Devin Brant

“I grew up at the Lebowsky Center, performing in my first show at the age of 9 as a willow tree. For me, the Lebowsky Center is home. The people I met at this theater have become my lifelong friends. The skills that I developed in rehearsal and on stage became lessons that I carry with me to the office boardroom and beyond! It has been thrilling to watch the growth of this organization over the past 20 years. I am honored to be part of the next generation of LCPA stewards, providing opportunities for community, culture, and education for mid-Michigan!”

Josh Holliday

“I serve as a member of the Board of Directors because I believe in the transformative power the arts have on creating a stronger, more prosperous community!”

Tom Kurtz

“Theatre is vitally important in a community to promote and foster creativity, culture, expression and art.  Especially in a small community, theatre may be one of the few opportunities to perform, share and grow in the arts. I am involved in the Owosso Community Players for the quality, culture, and experience that is second to none in community theater.”

Jeff McIntyre

My interest in serving on a committee and in a leadership role for Lebowsky Center for Performing Arts comes from the enrichment my daughters have received as a result of their involvement with the productions put on by LCPA. I have witnessed the fun, joy, confidence, and pride that comes from putting in all of the hard work to prepare for and perform in a show. I want to do my part to ensure these things are available for the performers and the audience for years to come.  I also know that live theater and performances are a crucial element of a successful vibrant community and I want our community to continue to be a place people desire to live, work, and play.

Anna Owens

” I have loved live theater since I was a child and believe that every community is a better place with live theater. It is our responsibility to continue to provide this opportunity to our neighbors.”
