Steve & Peggy Yoder

Meet Shadowbox Live Donors Steve and Peggy Yoder! Steve, an orthopedic surgeon, and Peggy, the treasurer of First Presbyterian Church of Ashland, met at OSU in 1973. The couple has called Ashland, OH home for 32 years, where they raised three children and enjoy time with their two grandchildren.

Peggy first attended a Holiday Hoopla show with a friend at Easton, but it wasn’t long before she brought Steve in to see what all the buzz was about. They have been attending shows for ten years rarely miss a show. Even though they travel over an hour from Ashland, with friends and family in tow, they feel an evening at Shadowbox Live is “always worth the trip.”

The Yoder’s are supporters of a variety of organizations like the First Presbyterian Church of Ashland, the United Way, Young Life, Ashland Symphony Orchestra, the YMCA and The Ohio State University but are pleased to support Shadowbox Live because they “are amazed by the many talents and hard work of the metaperformers at Shadowbox Live and feel the quality of the shows rivals what [they] have seen on Broadway at an exceptional price. [They] enjoy the interactions with the staff and feel that all of these things contribute to making Shadowbox different and special.”

Steve and Peggy first became Shadowbox Live Donors during Kickstarter Campaign to fund the Shadowbox Live Original Musical, Underland. They recall this as being very special to them as their donation incentives allowed them to become involved in the Shadowbox production process by attending several rehearsals prior to opening night. We recall their involvement as being very special to us, as well!

You, too, can help Shadowbox Live produce a show. Check out the EVO Kickstarter Campaign running through September 23rd or contact Edelyn “Eddy” Parker at eparker@shadowboxlive.org to become a Shadowbox Live Donor.

Stacie Boord

For over 20 years, Shadowbox LIVE has produced world-class performances, spanning the artistic spectrum from sketch comedy, rock ‘n ‘roll and musicals to original rock operas, drama, dance theater and new media, always putting its emphasis on the unparalleled live experience. It is now our pleasure to be able to apply our experience of the arts and the business of theater to our educational outreach efforts through the Shadowbox Academy.

Our continued success and ability to embark on new endeavors is only possible because of thoughtful contributions from people like you.

In addition to making a critical impact on our weekly “bottom line,” your donation plays a big role in continuing to support the transition into our Brewery District home, including the build out of our state of the art rehearsal space! This project is a major step forward for Shadowbox Live as well as the facilities we will share with the Shadowbox Academy students. We are very excited – and grateful – to take that step with you.
