I have been a fan and patron of the Lobero Theatre for decades and my experience has been a truly generational one filled with beautiful memories involving my family. I now find myself creating new, unforgettable moments in my role as Assistant Director of Development of the Lobero Theatre Foundation. In my twenties, I came out to an American Big Band-era show shortly after my Dad’s passing as a way to hold on to my memories of him listening to Glenn Miller albums throughout my childhood. It was a cathartic experience to say the least. Fast-forward a decade later and I found myself attending a Pixar movie with my then 5-year-old son as part of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. Seeing the beauty and grandeur of this stately theater through his eyes was such a thrill. And now, happily, rather joyfully, I am in a new position as Assistant Director of Development with an entirely new perspective on the inner-workings of this truly remarkable historical treasure. (If these walls could speak

you’d hear nearly 150 years-worth of worldclass performances and applause.) My role here at the Lobero is unique in that I get to interact and engage with some wonderful members of our community – from our local businesses who make up our list of Corporate Sponsors, to folks like you who support the Lobero in a myriad of ways, like coming out to our shows and VIP events. It has been a pleasure getting to meet so many of you! The 21/22 Season is off to a great start with audiences hungry for the return of live performances. Speaking for all of us here at the Lobero, I want to thank you for placing a value on the performing arts just by coming out to our shows. Here’s to the next 150 years of memorable entertainment!

*in memoriam and with gratitude

For over 148 years, through the leanest times and grandest evenings, the Ghostlight has cast a warm glow over our intimate stage. It’s a beacon for the muses of drama, dance, and music – a spark of brilliance to keep creative spirits company from curtain-down to curtain-up. The strong and steady support of the Lobero Ghostlight Society illuminates our behind-the-scenes efforts and – like the steadfast bulb at center stage – keeps our vibrant theatre from ever going dark.
