Sharon Hoge

President-Blackfoot Community Players

After teaching elementary school for several years, Sharon converted her theater hobby into a career teaching drama at Mountain View School and Blackfoot High School. With set design and decor, publicity, and painting, she has little time for other hobbies.  She states, “I do feel lucky when I get to spend time with my family, especially my talented children and grandchildren, many of whom I have been lucky enough to direct.”

 

Sharon Hoge has served on the BCP Board in various positions since the late 80's, shortly after Blackfoot Community Players moved into the historic Nuart Theater. When she first served as the treasurer, she had no idea it would turn into a lifelong quest to nurture the Nuart.  Besides serving as president of the board, she is responsible for show contracts, writing grants, and finding funding for nearly continuous restoration projects at the Nuart.

 

Her favorite BCP productions as an actor include Steel Magnolias, Oklahoma, and Arsenic and Old Lace. Her favorite productions as the director include Hunchback of Notre Dame, Newsies, and West Side Story. Hamilton and Wicked are favorites of the Broadway stage.  

   

She feels lucky to work with so many selfless and talented people on the BCP Board (past and present) who have made it possible to keep this “little dream in Blackfoot” alive!
