President

511 Butts Avenue, Tomah, WI 54660  |  larkintomah@gmail.com

Born and raised in Tomah, I attended Tomah High School and University of Wisconsin Eau Claire. In 1964 I married Terry Larkin, worked at Northwest Telephone Company long distance and accounting departments, then taught piano and organ lessons for over twenty-five years.

 

In 1978, purchased a motel, mobile home park and service station complex in Tomah. Terry was a partner in Larkin’s GMC dealership, so I managed the “Lark Inn”.

 

Terry and I have three children, seven grandchildren and two great grandsons.

 

Sixteen years ago, I became actively involved with the Area Community Theatre. I helped to find a new location for the organization when they were forced to leave their longtime home at Fort McCoy and I was instrumental in the purchase of the former CenturyTel building, which ACT now occupies. As a board member, I’ve held the positions of Box Office Manager, Treasurer and Director of Development. Terry and I usher at many performances, help with fundraisers and have been involved with the recent renovations. I’ve enjoyed meeting many wonderful people through ACT.

 

It will be a privilege to represent all of the ACT members as their President for the next two years.  Performing arts is my passion. I would hope that my business experience would be an asset in this position and at this exciting time.

Rocky first got involved volunteering at ACT in 1980 and is still devoting much of his time to the theatre. He has served as an actor, director, secretary, Vice President and house manager. Theatre is an important part of Rocky’s life. Besides working with the group at ACT, he plans many weekend trips to other theatres around the states of Wisconsin and Minnesota. He loves to plan annual vacations to New York City where he attends numerous Broadway plays and musicals. Rocky truly believes that the arts should be an important part of any community and has made it his mission to help others discover how fantastic theatre can be.

Treasurer

1215 McLean Ave Tomah, WI 54660  |  Barbara514@centurytel.net

I have loved theater since I was a small child, and have been involved in organized theater in various capacities since the eighth grade. Upon my retirement in 2012 from the Tomah Area School District I was ready to spend more time at ACT. I am currently working between being the ACT Board’s treasurer and box office roles.

 

In addition to ACT productions, I enjoy attending theater and music productions and art shows  throughout the area.   Losing myself in music, art, literature, and theater is an integral part of my well being.  You, too, can experience the way the arts lift one's spirit.  Join us.
