Bruce Ormond

Bruce Ormond

Director at Large, Theatre Manager

Bruce was bitten by the theatre bug at an early age. His parents were very involved in the community he grew up in and he spent many hours crawling around underneath the stage while the adults rehearsed. Most of his theatre experience is in performance, so this is a “dramatic” turn for him to be a member of the Board of Directors. He is looking forward to being a part of this exceptional team that has been providing live theatre to Ladysmith and area for many years.

Lindsey Woods

Now semi-retired, Lindsey and her husband love to travel, and are slowly working through their bucket list.
