Our Board

The Academy Theatre has been run as a not-for-profit enterprise overseen by a Board of volunteers for over fifty-five years. This is a remarkable achievement which, once again, speaks to the high esteem with which Community members value the Academy's role. The Academy Theatre Foundation is committed to managing and preserving the Theatre while supporting and promoting cultural and performing arts within the City of Kawartha Lakes.

Communities are defined, largely, by the traditions that have helped shape them. The Academy Theatre for Performing Arts has been a constant source of joy and inspiration to this Community and, with ongoing support, will continue to be so well into the next century.
