Donor/Volunteer Spotlight

Meet Kathy Chase...

Kathy is an Amherst resident, alumnae of Sweet Briar College, retired secondary school teacher and nurse, and an ordained minister in the Episcopal Church. She is also a long-time supporter of Endstation. In fact, she's been a part of the Endstation family longer than some of the staff. She and her husband Robert have given graciously to our cause--donating not only financial resources, but also their time. Last year, Kathy hosted one of our weekly "Intern Lunches," marking her forever as company favorite with the Endstation interns. Having already agreed to host a lunch this year, she is poised to woo yet another crowd of young, theatre professionals in the making.

As one of our long-term supporters, we asked Kathy about her involvement in the community, and in particular with Endstation. Below is a video in which she shares her insight into how the company has changed, why she continues to support Endstation, and what she sees as the role Endstation plays in the Central Virginia community.

Endstation is so fortunate to have a roster of volunteers and donors who have given their time, money, and energy. It takes a lot of all three to make high quality theatre at a reasonable ticket prices. This new weekly feature of our blog shines a spotlight on some of those folks who make what we do possible. Thank you to all of you who have contributed to our work!

--Angela Sweigart-Gallagher, Development Director
