The Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is the governing body that makes WST’s strategic decisions.

  • The Board selects the upcoming season’s show and staff, approves the budget, and makes all theatre-policy-level decisions.
  • The Board consists of 10-13 tenured members, who retain their seats on the Board until they resign, graduate, or leave the theatre, and 4 annual members representing the Cast, Crew, Staff, and Orchestra, who are elected to serve one-year terms by their segment of the theatre.
  • The Board is led by its Chairman, who serves a one-year term, with the aid of the Parliamentarian on procedural issues and the Board Secretary, who handles Board correspondence including the minutes of meetings.
