Jim Bowen-Collinson - Candidate for Member "At Large"
Jim's Personal Statement
I have been a performer in the NOVA area for 10 years now and currently serve on the board for another theater organization where I am their current season development chair. Over the years, I have seen wonderful theatre come from PWLT, including being part of the remounted production of Sister Act, and there is something special about this theatre company in terms of the quality of theatre they being to audiences and what they do for Prince William County. They truly are a theatre company that knows how to take care of each other, and make members feel like they are a part of a family. I would like to be a part of PWLT’s Board to aid them in continued longevity to prosper in this ever changing world of theatre.
