Keith Polakoff - Chair

Testimonial: I was fortunate enough to grow up in New York, where my parents introduced me to theatre, musical theatre, and opera at a relatively young age. I still attend these kinds of events as often as I can. So I think it is incumbent upon me to do whatever I can to make sure that these same opportunities are available to future generations. Theatre Arts at CSULB means not only training actors and designers but providing a chance for literally thousands of undergraduate students to attend live theatre for the first time in their lives. What could be better than that?

Testimonial: It is an honor and a privilege to be part of a dynamic organization that is dedicated to student success. As a Theatre Arts Advisory Board (TAAB) member, I have an opportunity to support and promote the worthy mission of “… educating, nurturing, and inspiring students to successfully embark as integrated, thoughtful, and culturally aware artists into the local and global professional arenas.” Additionally, as a board member, I have the pleasure of witnessing great theatre, augmenting my own understanding of the art form and participating in departmental efforts to infuse passion and reverence of live theatre into the community. Caring for the things we love increases our love for the things we care about. With a love of theatre, passion for education and commitment to student success, participation as a TAAB member offers me the opportunity to care for what I love.
