Director of Performing ARTs
Kodiak Arts Council welcomes to our growing team, Wasilla born and raised, Trisha Bartel, as our new Director of Performing Arts. Trisha is energetic, has a zesty personality and an infectious laugh. You might recognize her from one of her past performances in Kodiak such as Guinevere from Camelot, Belle from Beauty and the Beast, the spritely Ghost of Christmas Past in Scrooge, or from her most recent type-casted debut as grumpy, old Mrs. Brill the housekeeper from Mary Poppins. A Coast Guard wife with three active kids, she enjoys her children's sporting events, live music, singing, dancing, playing guitar, cooking, baking, all things theatre and of course, all the great outdoor activities that Alaska provides.
