Holly Eidsness  – This is my first year as MRP board member, but I have been on-stage or behind the stage since 1990. The magic of MRP theatre gave me the confidence to pursue many new avenues in my life. Therefore, I like to give back in anyway I can, especially family or children’s theater.


Nancy Pearson recently retired as an assistant professor of Communication Arts at Minot State University. She has served on the MRP board since 2002 and remembers the days of looking for a stage to perform the shows! Her most memorable show is the first Orphan Train production in 2007.  She volunteers wherever needed at the theater and spends one day a week at the Minot Convention and Visitors Bureau. “I’m proud to be a part of the thriving arts community here. I truly believe that an appreciation of the arts is vital for the health of a community.”
