I am Sharon Kruger.

Volunteer Coordinator

I’m a retired sixth grade teacher, and a lover of the arts.
I coordinate volunteers, and other odd jobs at Hubbard Hall.
I first got involved when everything was “under the bell tower” in the cellar. The folk scene was lively, and Jean Redpath was one of many famous performers who performed here.
I love the mix of wonderful amateur and professional artists, from children to seniors, all working together, and the great audiences who appreciate it all! There are also loads of classes to take, and workshops for everything from kids’ art to opera.
If someone wants to get involved, I’d say “Jump right in” There is a place for you. There are so many ways to do it, and you will always be excited by the amazing variety of programming, and the wonderful group of people around you.
I am enthusiastic.
I am happy.
I am Hubbard Hall.

I’m Leah Jaffe.

I’m a high school student and actor and dancer at Hubbard Hall. I first got involved in Hubbard Hall by taking an Irish Step dancing class when I was seven years old, and eight years later I am still continuing.
What I love about Hubbard Hall is the energy, creativity, and community. If someone was thinking about getting involved here I’d say “Go right ahead, the people here are welcoming and you’ll get caught up in the excitement in no time!”
I am ambitious.
I am intense.

I am Virginia May Edinger.

I am an actor, writer, musician, director, singer, songwriter, dancer, and student as well as a volunteer, program counselor, assistant teacher, and all of the aforementioned at Hubbard Hall.
I first got involved at Hubbard Hall as an audience member at age 6, a dance student at age 7, and a Youth Theater Company participant at age 9. I’ve been hooked ever since.
What I love about Hubbard Hall is its sense of family, friendship, community, and acceptance, its wide array of course and production offerings which appeal to any and all artistic interests, and perhaps most importantly to me, its ability to nurture the arts in young generations and equip them with skills to take wherever they go.
If someone was thinking about getting involved here, I would say “do.” I have had some of my fondest memories and my biggest breakthroughs on this campus. I have experienced so many different art forms through immersion and education here. It is important to enrich our lives with creative expression. Here, art is not only accessible to us, it is activated within us. Hubbard Hall catalyzes artistic growth and exploration.
I am zealous.
I am unstoppable.
I am Hubbard Hall.

I’m Darcy May.

I’m an artist, illustrator, dance instructor, volunteer, wife, and mother. Add scenic painter, arts and crafts facilitator, receptionist/box office, and Assistant to the Director to that list and you have my role at Hubbard Hall.
I first got involved at Hubbard Hall in the early 2000’s as an audience member, and then became the Irish Step dance instructor. That led to volunteering and then being hired in the offi ce.
What I love about Hubbard Hall is that it is a hive of activity with creative people and an inspiring atmosphere. On any given day I may experience opera coming through the fl oors, children running in and out, actors rehearsing in the yard, dancers perfecting choreographies in the studio, plans being made, and visions taking shape.
If someone was thinking about getting involved here, I’d say “The Hubbard Hall community is a wonderful place to invest your time and raise your children. My daughters grew up here and it has impacted their lives immeasurably.”

I also head the building committee which keeps an eye on our buildings and I help with repair and maintenance projects. I am dedicated to helping Hubbard Hall thrive.
I fi rst got involved with Hubbard Hall when I attended performances “under the Bell Tower”, and joined the COOP and VAM. I have enjoyed many music events, plays and concerts over the years and more recently Curiosity Forums and Opera.
I love the variety of entertainment, the range of educational programs and the atmosphere in each of our restored venues, and the opportunity to share these experiences with friends and fellow participants. I also love that we have something for every age group and level of experience.
If you are thinking about getting involved, I’d say Hubbard Hall is a wonderful gateway to a community of thoughtful, generous people with a wide range of creative interests. Whether attending a show or class, serving on the board, teaching or volunteering, everyone shares an appreciation for the role Hubbard Hall plays in their lives and the community.
I am curious.
I am grateful.

I fi rst got involved at Hubbard Hall by attending a pilates class, and then I signed my children up for a couple of dance classes, and then my daughter auditioned for and got a part in the Romeo and Juliet summer Shakespeare last summer. That was when I started attending the theater performances, and when it became apparent that I would be spending a lot of time driving to and from the theater for my daughter’s rehearsals anyway, I became a volunteer!

What I love about Hubbard Hall is the positivity and encouragement exhibited by the instructors, the beautiful theater itself and that I can see high quality theater performances that include both professional actors and local talent, and I don’t have to drive up to an hour or more hour away…it is right here in Cambridge.

If someone was thinking about getting involved here, I’d say “You’ll love it!”
