Join the Board

Board Impact

Board members help shape the Hangar Theatre’s artistic, educational, and community missions. Through fulfilling the expectations outlined below Board members will build a working knowledge of the Hangar Theatre and what is involved in creating live theatre and educational programming and be better able to advocate on behalf of the Hangar Theatre. The insights gained from active membership will inform the financial stewardship, policy development, and strategic directions of the Hangar Theatre. The Board also plays a significant role in supporting and facilitating the financial health of the organization through annual donations, and equally if not more important, advocacy and network efforts that impact development initiatives.

“Joining the Hangar community as a board member has enriched my life in so many ways. I love learning about theater by getting to know actors and sharing in discussions after shows. It is fun to see the joy on children’s faces at KIDDSTUFF Shows and to observe young actors as they are mentored by professionals. I love standing ovations! 

Theater is about love.  The parent of a young actress from N.Y. explained that to me as we sat in the garden. That was a bonus of joining the facilities committee and planting flowers that are donated each year by a local nursery.”                              – Katy Pearce (Emeritus Board Member)

Board Expectations

Board members use their varied talents to support the Hangar Theatre’s operations. Legal, finance, human resources/personnel, marketing, development, facilities, and management skills, among other areas of expertise, play critical roles in the work of the Board.

Time commitment: Board members spend, on average, five to ten hours per month attending board meetings, committee meetings, and events or activities and participating in advocacy opportunities.

Financial commitment: Board members also commit to supporting the Hangar Theatre through financial means, including an annual pledge.

Support the art: Board members are expected to support the art created at the Hangar through the purchase of Mainstage tickets as well as KidStuff, Wedge, and/or Project 4 performances.
