Meet the Staff

Our mission is to present outstanding theater that inspires both audience and artist alike in an intimate “salon” setting. Bas Bleu’s goal is to enrich the cultural life of the region and, in so doing, add to the common cultural experience that bonds us all to our community and the world around us. We are a non-profit theatre and we do all this with a very small and dedicated staff, and a small budget. Each and every one of us appreciate your patronage and your support of the arts!
