Jove Graham (President) received his B.A. in Theatre Studies from Swarthmore College, has worked behind the scenes or onstage at People’s Light & Theatre Company (Malvern, PA), Montgomery Playhouse (Gaithersburg, MD), Bucknell University, and is a graduate of the Arden Theatre Company’s APA professional apprenticeship program (Philadelphia, PA) with an emphasis in marketing and production. He has appeared in several RiverStage productions and has directed 10 mainstage shows including Pirates of Penzance and Monty Python’s Spamalot. He works as a researcher for Geisinger Health System.
Sarah Bell (Treasurer) became interested in theatre as a youngster in Lenox, MA when her church put on several productions of two plays written and directed by William Gibson. After volunteering, and then working, in many roles at Shakespeare & Company in Lenox throughout her teen years, she decided to study theatre and received her Bachelor degrees in Theatre and Management at Indiana University in Bloomington, IN. She started off as a Box Office Manager for Nickerson Theatre, south of Boston, but soon started working (and still does) in higher education as a counselor and administrator. She enjoyed her experiences in college and community theatre productions in Bloomington, Indiana, Titusville, PA, and Morris, MN until 1998 and (very gratefully) became involved again when RiverStage started up in 2012. Most recently, she was seen on stage as Muriel in Tiny Island.
Anne Griffin (Secretary) has been a registered nurse (RN) for all of her adult life, a career that has taken her around the world and back again. Growing up in Harrisburg, she loved attending community theatre performances. She has spent quality time backstage with the Lewisburg costuming experts, particularly at the high school level, and has more recently enjoyed time on the stage, appearing in Anne of Green Gables and Spamalot. In nearing retirement, she enjoys working with RiverStage as it continues to offer the region stimulating, thought-provoking and amusing entertainment.
