About Our Host
C. Michael-jon Pease, CFRE, has been with Park Square Theatre for 10 years, first as Development Director, then External Relations Director, and now Executive Director. His theatre career started at age eight in a seminal production of Jack and the Magic Beanstalk by the Rock Valley Children’s Theatre. He came to Minnesota from Rhode Island to get his MA in Arts Administration from St. Mary’s University (where he also teaches fundraising). Michael-jon is a long-time AFP MN member where he has served as Vice President for Communications.
Park Square Theatre opened in 1975 in an 80-seat walk-up in the Park Square Court building. With its move to the Historic Hamm Building in 1997, Park Square began a strong relationship with Actors’ Equity Association (the union of professional actors and stage managers), and embraced a leading role as a producer of contemporary plays.
Today, Park Square features two stages: the Proscenium Stage and the Andy Boss Thrust Stage. It has grown into one of Minnesota’s top employers of local stage talent — 64 percent of whom are women and artists of color — in an expansive season of fresh titles and perspectives. Park Square’s education program engages one of the nation’s largest teen theatre audiences.
