Chris Serface Elected to National Board of Directors of American Association of Community Theatre
Chris Serface of Tacoma Little Theatre has been elected as an officer for the American Association of Community Theatre (AACT) Board of Directors. Chris will serve as Vice President for Planning and Development for a two-year term from 2014 till 2016.
Chris was raised in the Pacific Northwest, where he discovered the theatre at an early age and became involved with the local community scene. At 17, he became the youngest board member of Capital Playhouse in Olympia, Washington, and helped that organization grow from a seasonal production schedule to year-round programming. During his educational and professional career, he has travelled throughout the West, working closely with many theatres as an actor, technician, director, musician, volunteer, or board member (sometimes all of them at the same time). Currently, Chris is the Managing Artistic Director of Tacoma Little Theatre (founded in 1918), having previously served as the Director of Education for Tacoma Musical Playhouse. He is currently on the board of the Washington State Community Theatre Association as its Secretary and serves as chair of AACT's Workshops Committee. When not involved in some kind of theatrical endeavor, he tries to find time to spend with his five nephews.
The American Association of Community Theatre (AACT) provides networking, resources and support to suit the needs of those involved in community theatre. AACT represents the interests of more than 7,000 theatres across the United States and its territories, as well as theatre companies with the armed services overseas.
