    Alicia joined Trike Theatre as Accounting Manager in March 2018 after volunteering as event coordinator for Trike’s Laughter and Libations fundraiser. In 2007, Alicia graduated from Evangel University with a BS in Business Management. While she’s always had the travel bug, Alicia’s love and passion for travel deepened when she spent a semester abroad at CIMBA Institute in Northern Italy. Another of Alicia’s passions is community involvement. With over ten years in the banking industry and two years as Board Treasurer of Junior League of Northwest Arkansas, working for Trike Theatre has become the perfect place to marry that passion of community involvement with her financial experience. Additionally, Alicia, along with her husband, Ryan, have joined the Rampy MS Research Foundation Board. Alicia’s son, Stone, is also involved in Trike Theatre’s Academy programs – it has been fun (and occasionally hilarious) to see the development of his personality and imagination – a true cultivation of his creativity.

    For 30 years Laura has kept asking “Is it ART yet?” Survivor of many many many theatrically theatrical Theatre Seasons in (41 of the 50 states) where we (the tech crew) attempted to keep the drama on the stage where it belonged, and often succeeded in failing to do so. Laura’s managed to get a good education in how Theatre actually works despite the reckless pursuit and unsuspected earning/ bestowal/ give-it-to-her-so-she’ll-stop-asking-questions-we-have-no-answers-to, of an MFA.
