I love serving as a Trustee at The Rep because of the value it brings to our seacoast community. Theatre is an amazing way to spend an evening with friends or connect with neighbors. My mission is to share my love of theatre with others and use my engineering experience to ensure The Rep (and the historic building it calls home) will be here for years to come!

Of all the performing arts venues, organizations, and events in Portsmouth, my best/favorite experiences have been at The Rep. I am humbled and honored to help shaping the future of the organization where I made my musical theatre debut at the ripe old age of 35 and ensuring its viability for future generations. I hope to use my background in marketing and nonprofit management to serve The Rep’s mission and share our programming with as many people as possible.

I love that through the years of its existence, The Rep has provided both patronage and performance opportunities for all ages, from grandchildren to grandparents. As a Trustee, I’m focusing on the facility and its needs to not only preserve the building and provide a safe and comfortable environment for actors and patrons, but also to support updates that will help keep the thespian spirit alive at this important seacoast venue for years to come.

Sarah Lachance

I’m thrilled to support the fantastic programming offered by The Rep. We must continue to protect our ability to connect with each other, and theatre brings disparate ages, perspectives, identities, and experiences together – exploring what makes us human. Professionally, I work to solve complex problems by developing software that improves all aspects of business operations. My passion is identifying new problem-solving methods through collaborative experimentation and adaptation. I look forward to combining these specialties to help The Rep grow and prosper.
