Andrée is a retired TD Bank IT Senior Business Analyst. She has 3 sons, 6 amazing grand-children, and a beautiful little great grand-daughter. Andrée always had a love of all things theatre; and it was a natural process for her to get involved with KCP when her grand-daughters were cast in KCP shows. She has produced numerous productions in the past 10 seasons and has been on the Board of Directors for the past 5. She thanks KCP for the opportunities given to her and she is delighted to be a member of such a great organization.
Janis has been a member of KCP since 2001. From 2002 to now, she has served on the Board of Directors as our Treasurer. Throughout this time, she has had the privilege of being in the role of Director and Musical Director but her favourite place is in front of an audience. She is very happy to have the opportunity to share the stage her favourite fella, Owen, and her daughter, Jen.
Bob is a founding member of KCP and its predecessors, and a retired elementary school principal. Bob returns to the Board as secretary, and looks forward to participating in the decision-making process. Bob has performed in, directed and produced many shows for KCP and for other local groups. He loves the more traditional Broadway musicals, and has a particular love for the works of Gilbert and Sullivan. Bob is married to Jo-Ann (now 42 years), and they have two daughters and four lovely, energetic grandchildren. Bob also loves his garden, travel and, above all, singing!
