Carrie has been volunteering at Theatre Shenandoah since 2014, and has loved every second of it! She is so excited to teach the young actors and actresses, many of whom have gone on to perform in leading roles at the theatre.

You may have seen her in past productions as the Mistress in "Evita", Pheobe in "A Christmas Carol", as well as working behind the scenes on almost every production.




Tammi has been involved with the theatre over the past 4 years with her daughters Piper and Madeline.  Although never on the stage herself, she enjoys helping to manage some of the behind the scenes aspects of theatre life. In her spare time, Tammi works for Shenandoah County Public Schools as the Coordinator in Special Education.  Tammi hopes to help support the wonderful talent that is brought to the stage at Theatre Shenandoah

Suzanne Montgomery is a writer/editor by profession, having worked for a number of private publications, as well as the federal government.  A resident of Woodstock, she is an ardent supporter of all forms of theater, but leaves the stage to other more talented singer, dancers and actors. Her goal for Theatre Shenandoah is to make it instantly recognizable to young and old throughout the county.

“Theatre Shenandoah is a family that works hard to offer culture to the community. It’s an organization that supports the arts in our area and encourages our talented youth to grow.”
