Jonathan is proud to be returning as the President of the 2018-2019 TAG Board. He has been on the TAG Board for 5 years and has held each position since the board was created. Jonathan is very excited to work with a new group of TAG teens, and create opportunities for teenagers in the area. Jonathan has been involved in many theater productions through SOAR, STMA High School, and other community theatre companies. These productions include: Seussical (SOAR), Cinderella (STMA High School), After Hours (STMA One Act), and many more.

She has been a part of SOAR for almost 6 years now and has loved every minute of it! She has been in over 20 productions most of which were with SOAR! These include Jungle Book, 101 Dalmatians, Lion King, Shrek and many more! When Kelsey is not onstage she enjoys spending time with friends, music, and writing. Words cannot express how happy she is to help spread the love of the theater to others!
In the summer of 2014 SOAR created a Teen Advisory Group (TAG) that would have a board that mirrored the SOAR board. Each summer the TAG board applications open for the next school year. In the short time since TAG has been created, they have produced a musical (High School Musical) with shadowing opportunities. Created programming for teens (Broadway in the Park) where they worked on all aspects of four different shows for families. Our TAG media director is also in charge of our social media campaigns on Twitter, Instagram, and SnapChat. Teens that are general members of TAG participate by volunteering for SOAR events. We hope to have our general members more involved by participating or leading committees as our program grows.
