"I'm honored to have an opportunity to serve on the Board of Trustees of MPAC, and play a small part in supporting all of the wonderful entertainment which the theater provides to our community," he says. "Like so many, my family and I have been missing going out during this pandemic, and I know the theater has faced extraordinary challenges in navigating through this difficult period. Through conversations with the MPAC team, I've learned just how much the theater contributes to the vibrancy of the local area, as well as the unique experiences it provides through educational programs such as The Miracle Project and Arts in the Community. The MPAC team has worked incredibly hard to innovate and power through the hardship this year, and I'm excited to help back their efforts - looking forward to the day when we're all enjoying packed shows in the theater once again."
