What are the Chappell Players committees?
Chappell Players has initiated a Committee System in order to enhance members' involvement with our theatre organization. Through these committees, members are given a greater range of opportunities to showcase and develop their skills in all aspects of a theatrical production.

The new Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee's goal the improvement of cultural awareness, diversity, equity, and inclusion, and for creating a safe environment for ALL of our new and current members.
Collaborate to identify areas of improvement: Work to identify and recommend areas for improvement related to DEI strategies in Chappell Players shows, events and our environment.

Co-Chairs: Jenniffer Venus & Katherine Petrick
Purpose: The Photo/Video committee’s main goal is to publicize our shows through videos and document all our fun times in Chappell Players! The committee both films and edits these projects. For each show, we make three videos:
Promo Video: The promo video includes clips from rehearsals along with interviews with key people who worked on the show (director, producer, main actors, stage manager, etc.)
Tech Crew Video: This video started to recognize all of the crew behind the scenes that work tirelessly to make sure we all have an amazing show. It typically includes interviews with all the tech crew members and videos of the tech crew working on the show.
Audience Reaction Video: After the opening night of the production, we film an audience reaction video. It includes positive reviews of our show from the audience to get more people interested in seeing what all of the hype is about!
At the end of the year, we also make a Year in Review Video that includes clips from all of our activities throughout the year! This is shown at our end-of-the-year banquet along with a Bloopers Video.
The Photo/Video Committee typically meets once every week/every other week during common hour depending on how much work we have to do.
Co-Chairs: Brianna Mannino & Faith Grady
