Our Board of Trustees is comprised of dedicated volunteer community-minded supporters of the arts who are committed to advancing BTE's mission. Their stewardship is essential to the health of our organization. In collaboration with the Resident Acting Company and Staff, the board holds the governance of BTE in trust for the community.

Charlotte Droll, Board President

Charlotte Droll has been a member of the Board since 2016 and President since 2019. She is a Pennsylvania native from Bucks County and came to Bloomsburg to work at Bloomsburg University where she is Director at the Harvey A. Andruss Library. Her commitment to BTE comes from a deep appreciation of BTE’s theatrical excellence and its role in the community. She arrived in Bloomsburg in 2012, the year BTE produced Flood Stories, Too, a reflection on the community’s experience of the 2011 Bloomsburg flood. The play, a BTE original, gave a newcomer a vivid sense of how the flood affected real people. A life-long lover of theater, she is particularly interested in giving young people the opportunity to be both playgoer and artist.

Doug Bastian, Treasurer

Doug joined the BTE Board in 2020 and serves as the Board Treasurer and Finance Committee Chairperson. He graduated from Bucknell University and his working career was in the manufacturing sector of the pharmaceutical industry. He has had the opportunity to live in Japan and the Republic of South Africa, and he currently lives in Danville with his wife Cathy. They are the proud parents of three grown children and seven grandchildren. Doug is retired, but he is an avid outdoorsman and an active Master Gardener and PIAA High School Soccer Official and he is actively engaged in the Members Choice Financial Credit Union and Shiloh United Church of Christ in different volunteer capacities. His commitment to BTE simply reflects his love of live theater and his marvel of BTE’s theatrical excellence and its role in the central Susquehanna Valley region. Doug sees BTE as the vessel through which we can all grapple with deep human issues while being concurrently entertained.
