ROB MORLINO  Rob was born and raised in suburban New Jersey which would not have been his first choice. He works as a business consultant and nonprofit sustainability specialist. Rob became familiar with the Playhouse through acting and played the romantic lead in the 2016 Melodrama receiving mediocre reviews. He’s excited for Santa Fe and the rest of the word to realize that Santa Fe is a theatre powerhouse.

AMANDA PIERCE  Amanda has over 18 years of retail banking experience.  Her leadership style is very focused on creating a team that thrives together, builds each other up and has a good time while taking care of business. When not at work, she is probably at a youth sports event. Her children are very active in track, volleyball, football, baseball, soccer and the best sport of all, basketball. She has recently started running, loves hiking and playing fetch with her lab pup. If you are looking for someone who shanks, chunks and duffs, she’s your gal for your next golf tournament.
