The Board of Directors Page...

The Silver Stage Players' governing body is a Board of Directors which makes all executive decisions on behalf of the company's membership. All positions are elected offices unless by way of a special appointment. Officers are elected to serve two-year terms beginning in January of every other year. The Board of Directors consists of a Chairman, Vice-chairman, Secretary, Treasurer, Public Relations Director, Historian, Membership Director, and up to two at large Directors. There are also a number of committees that are formed for special projects and tasks.

The Board of Directors has a distinguished and storied history in the organization. Click here to see a picture of the BOD who ratified a version of the company's By Laws in 1949!

Andrea Hill

I moved to the lovely Elko in 2006 with my son, Westly. It took me a couple years to find a community theater home, but eventually found my home with Silver Stage Players. My first production was Lysistrata, and I fell in love, again, with theater. Since that production, I have been involved in a few productions and have plans to direct my first show this spring. In 2012 I married my husband, Mike Hill, and later that year I had our little girl, Hadleigh. I am thankful for those in Silver Stage Players for reigniting my passion for performing arts again. I look forward to serving my fellow thespians as treasure on the Board of Directors of Silver Stage Players.

Sandy Beeler

After fighting crime as a masked superhero and helping to start the punk movement in the late 70's, Sandy retired and was reborn in the 80's. Growing up on the streets as a stray dog she morphed into her human form as we know today to move on to such projects as the "Where’s the Beef" grandma we knew and loved in the 90's. After the beef was nowhere to be found, she decided to wander the desert in search to new endeavors. After a brief stint as a test subject at Area 51 (don't ask her about her tail) she wagged her way into Elko. She set up camp and decided to make her way to the stage. After having a small part in The Trial of Ebenezer Scrooge and playing Audrey in Little Shop of Horrors, she wanted to try her hand at the classics. And her adventures continue. We welcomed Sandy in her Silver Stage Players debut with 2013's Bard in the Yard II.

Don Jones

Donald has been in the Elko area since 1995. He was first roped into Silver Stage Players by his sister in 1998, when he played Neville Landless in The Mystery of Edwin Drood.

In 2005 he became very involved with SSP when the set designer of Much Ado About Nothing stopped responding to the director. Donald had already been cast as Conrade, but stepped up and finished the set design as well.
He has been involved, as an actor or as a technician, in almost all of the SSP productions that have been put up since. Among others, he acted as stage manager for the Children’s Theatre Workshop production of Land of the Dragon, played the Priest in Man of La Mancha, did set design for Glengarry Glen Ross, and most recently played several roles in 2013's Bard in the Yard II.
