Board of Directors

These distinguished members of the Goochland Community Theatre’s Board of Directors serve as volunteers who ensure the vital roles of our organization are fulfilled in ways that aligns with our vision for the future of our non-profit. Without them, the Theatre would not be able to operate; they are essential to the growth and sustainability that we require to thrive in the community.
