Vermont Theatre Company elects new trustees

DUMMERSTON — The Vermont Theatre Company, now in its 33rd season, recently held its annual membership meeting and elected new trustees, according to a news release.

The new members of the Board of Trustees for the coming season include:

• Belle Coles, who has been involved in local theater since her arrival in Brattleboro in 1978. Although her talents and passion lie in costuming, she occasionally enjoys being on stage in fun and fanciful roles. Mostly, however, she remains committed to furthering the role that community and school theater play in exploring characters, engaging the community, and enriching our lives.

• Cameron Cobane, a theater artist living in Turners Falls, Massachusetts, who has been active in the performing arts in Western New England for 15 years. He has most recently appeared as Sicinius Velutus in Working-Day Company's “Coriolanus” and directed last season's Shakespeare-in-the-Park production of “All's Well That Ends Well” for VTC.

• Corinne Epstein, who has been on and off stage since she was 7, singing, acting, and dancing. She has appeared in shows at the New England Youth Theatre, musicals at Brattleboro Union High School, and Greenfield Community College, debuting in A.R. Gurney's “Sylvia” in her freshman year. She also is interested in circus arts.

• Cassie Dunn, a junior at BUHS, who is actively involved in theaters around Brattleboro. She is frequently onstage at NEYT and has been in shows at BUHS and with VTC, most recently performing as Cecily in last season's “The Importance of Being Ernest.” She will serve as a student trustee for the year.

These new trustees join the following members, who are currently on the board: Bob Kramsky, Mike Jerald, Michelle Page, Ian Hefele, Brandon Batham, Kate Maisner, Nichole Bliznak, and John Ogorzalek.
