Cathy Sigman Banner
Cathy Sigman Banner joined The Green Room staff in 2008 as a part-time Administrative Assistant which quickly grew to a full-time position as programs were added and the move was made to the Old Post Office Playhouse. She has also served as Musical Director for at least two shows each season since then, but her association with The Green Room actually began in 1988 when she played for the theatre’s first production of Grease. She had the honor of being onstage in several shows before joining the staff (Anne of Green Gables (2003), Camelot (2003), The Sound of Music (2004), The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (2005), Fiddler on the Roof (2005), and The Secret Garden (2007)). She also served as instructor for a Musical Theatre class as part of the Creative Works afterschool classes. Cathy is quick to admit that her daughter’s involvement with The Green Room pulled her in as well!
Cathy is a native of Catawba County who attended Bunker Hill High School and earned her Bachelors of Music in Voice from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She served many years in church music as choir director, organist, working with children and handbell groups, and directing or playing for many Christmas programs and church plays. She has taught voice and piano lessons since she was in high school, but her most beloved career has been that of wife to Randy and “Mom” to Matthew, Christina, and Jonathan. She is thankful for the Lord’s many blessings in her life and seeks to honor Him in all that she does.
Box Office and Marketing Director
Haley Edwards Beech is the Marketing Director at The Green Room Community Theatre. The Old Post Office Playhouse feels like “home” to her because she grew up spending lots of time at her grandparents’ Furniture Store, located on the square. She remembers walking the block to the old P.O. to check Box 405 and collect the mail. Sweet memories still flood her mind as she enters the building daily.
Haley is a native of Catawba County who graduated from Bandys High School in 1995. She graduated from Meredith College in 1999 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications and a minor in music (Voice). She led worship & played guitar for the college ministry, Cru, all 4 of her years at Meredith/NCSU. Haley has a big heart for Education and has volunteered at Tuttle Elementary serving several years as PTO President. She also was contracted as a Tutor there for the last 3 years. Most recently, Haley was elected to the Board of Directors for the Catawba County School Education Foundation.
Haley has been married to Jason since 1999. They met in Branson, MO on a Summer Mission Project with Campus Crusade for Christ. After graduating from college, they went on staff with “Cru” and lived in Wilmington, NC for several years. Her biggest job is being “Mama” to 2 energetic boys, Landon and Gabriel. It was Gabriel who introduced her to the theatre when he got involved at The Green Room in the second grade. He urged her to audition, and she made her debut performance in “The Dixie Swim Club.”
Education Director and Administrative Assistant
Grace loves creating theater as a writer, director, actor, and teacher. When she’s not flitting around TGR, you can find her out on a walk with her dogs, spending time with her family, or traveling.
Grace’s hope is to bring more and more students into theater through TGR’s education program, just as she was years ago!
