Board Member

J. Stuart Pike: Stuart, a native North Carolinian born and raised in Greensboro, was first introduced to live theater at the age of nine performing as Ebenezer Scrooge in a production of “A Christmas Carol.” Many years later with much water over the dam and a multitude of theatrical performances in the rearview mirror the passion for live theater still burns brightly. Having served on the Thalian board for seven years now, most recently as V.P., Stuart continues to champion the arts and live theater both through performing and serving on the board. Stuart and his wife Beth moved to Southport in 2011 where they continue to reside waiting for the day in the not too distant future when Stuart can fully retire from the financial services industry of which he has been a part for over 40 years. Retirement from the world of theater is not, however, in his future.
