Megan Mateer

Megan has been involved with theatre for most of her life.  Believing that education is very important, she achieved her PhD in theatre.  She has run two university theatre departments; stage managed at the Cleveland Playhouse; worked with Dayton and Columbus community theatres; and currently runs a theatrical props rental company, Tabatay Theatrical Props. 

Honkonen, Randi.png


Randi is a marketing and communications professional, currently working in higher education. She has been dancing since she was six, but only discovered the magic of community theater as an adult. She has served as a dance captain in numerous productions and routinely performs with Columbus Entertainment Productions 4 Charity. When the dance shoes come off, it's likely you'll find her sipping wine and spending time with her boyfriend and rescue pup.
