Board of Directors
Since first arriving at an audition for MTS in March of 2018, Kale has considered MTS a second home that is an incredibly energetic and supportive community. A place where artists are motivated to learn and challenged to rise to the expectation of high quality performance art. "I hope to see and aid in Musical Theatre Southwest’s growth as an organization and as a pillar of the Albuquerque arts community," states Kale. As a participating member of Musical Theatre Southwest’s Education Committee, he has seen the potential and helped overcome the challenges we face in making educational programs accessible to the community. With organization and vision, he believes that MTS can have expertly planned and competitively attended educational initiatives. Before the Fourth, was his first successful experience of organizing and executing a production. In 2015 and 2016, he acted as Publicity Chair for the inaugural board of Desi Dance Network, a national 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to promote and empower South Asian performing arts and artists, increase diversity in the entertainment industry, and build a community for artists within South Asian Performing Arts.
A strong bond with the community is what has made Musical Theatre Southwest what it is today—a community theatre built on the strong traditions of presenting Broadway-style musicals to families from across New Mexico and the nation. From our humble beginnings as a small and fledgling community theatre, we have helped bring laughter, drama and the best voices from around the state to our stages.
