Briana Bower – Director 

Briana is a recent EMU grad who has moved up from being in Center Stage shows to choreographing and now directing them. She has a passion for being involved both on stage and off, and is slowly discovering how much she loves working with kids and young adults. I love to watch them grow as well as grow myself in the crazy awesome world of theatre. I look forward to Drama Camp every summer and the new experiences that come along with it!



Aaron Greunke – Director, Lighting Designer
Aaron first discovered his love and passion for theatre in middle school and has been working his way through each of the roles of the theatre world ever since. From actor to singer, from sound designer to lighting designer, this year he was ecstatic to make his directing debut with Lion King Jr. He has had a home at Center Stage ever since his first role in 7th grade and he is even more thrilled to be directing again! Aaron can’t wait to be able to share his love and experiences and to be able to teach and learn with the kids and the rest of the Center Stage staff!



Paige Kenyon – Choreographer
Paige has been a passionate dancer since she was 3 years old. She is currently entering her 4th year on her school’s Varsity Dance Team. Paige started her love for theatre at her first Center Stage drama camp, when she was in 3rd grade. Through the years, she has been a part of countless musicals. She recently choreographed Seussical Jr. and Lion King Jr. She has also been a stage manager for Chicago the Musical. Paige is beyond excited to be joining the Center Stage team and can’t wait to share her love for theatre and dance with all the kids! 


Daisy Mull – Producer 
Daisy Mull is delighted to Produce with Center Stage Productions. She is not new to CSP – all of her children have attended summer camps and she and her husband were cast members of CSP’s Clue and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Daisy has also appeared onstage with Ann Arbor Civic Theatre and currently serves on the Board of Directors. She has also Produced and Directed for Ann Arbor Civic Junior Theatre. The most fun and favorite theater times she has had is when she has been able to be in shows with her children and husband.  She really does like being around teens and tweens and enjoys not only working with the theatre kids, but as a youth leader at her church in Ann Arbor. Daisy wears many hats, but her favorite is as wife to Rick and mom to Caroline, Kate, and Ryan.


Susan Hoover – Music Director 
Susan has a Bachelor of Music Education from EMU. She has taught Elementary Music for the Ann Arbor Public Schools for over 20 years. She has a passion for teaching kids to love creating and performing music. The most recent performing she has done was “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” through Center Stage. She has three kids of her own that have all gone to Center Stage Drama Camps. She has a great time directing her own kids, but through the magic of theater the whole cast becomes her kids during camp!

Jeff Greunke, President
Jeff is currently the Director of Worship Arts at St. Luke – Ann Arbor and has been for the past 27 years. He is a musician at heart and plays piano, organ, and a bunch of other sundry instruments a bit. He decided to get involved in this whole crazy theatre thing since most of his family has been involved in many Center Stage productions over the past several years and figured he should also help out. He enjoys watching his kids get psyched about musical theatre!
