S.T.A.G.E., Inc. 2018 Awards

The 39th Annual Awards were held on Sunday, August 12, 2018.  It was an evening of delicious food and great entertainment.  The St. Genesius Award, the highest award given by the Board of Directors, was awarded to Mona Klein of Bulverde.  Mona has been the Corporate Manager at S.T.A.G.E. for the last 4 years.  She has been instrumental in the remodeling of the theater, bringing online ticketing and credit card use to the patrons, and modernizing office programs and procedures.  In addition, Mona worked to establish a full length production for the S.T.A.G.E. ELFS Youth Classes, which have been very successful and continue to grow each year.  Through her time and efforts, Mona has definitely accomplished her goal of making S.T.A.G.E. better than when she started.
