Mira is an emerging behavioural scientist and has been chairing the Theatre Kimberley Board for the last three years. She has also recently joined the board of directors of Country Arts WA. Her passion for the performing arts goes way back to her high school days in Germany where she was an enthusiastic participant in the theatre group. Since coming to Broome 15 years ago she has been involved in a variety of community non-profit organisations and has found her place at TK. Not only a mother of three keen circus nuts, Mira is finally living her childhood dream and becoming a trapeze artist.

Meredith is the coordinator and head trainer for Theatre Kimberley's Act-Belong-Commit Sandfly Circus. A native of Tuscaloosa, Alabama (USA) who greatly misses cornbread and a few other things Southern, Meredith comes to TK with a background in visual arts (BA Magna Cum Laude, Davidson College, USA), in culinary arts (Certificate, Ballymaloe Cooking School, Cork, Ireland), and in production management. Meredith helps run a small tv production company with her freelance cameraman/director husband Paul, and they enjoy the beauty of life in Broome with their two young children.

He's also the major shareholder and managing director in Sydney based investment company Quay One Investments. Philip is also an active social media hound for the Oyster Bar, managing Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts.

He's a cricket tragic, a father of two and a husband of one who's fluent in drinking French.

Carolyn has recently joined the board of Theatre Kimberley. Having lived for a long time she has both wide experience and varied skills. Work has included over a decade as a university lecturer mainly in theatre and drama, and a similar period of time involved in Indigenous education. Her passions in life, after her wonderful family, include theatre, education, early years learning and the possessive apostrophe. After first visiting the Kimberley late last century she has been unable to resist and keeps returning. It might be hard to get rid of her.

Clancy grew up in Sydney but has made her home here in Broome for about 15 years. She first found herself in the Kimberley after running away from work overload in the feature film and television industry. She then returned in 2001 to settle down and work for Goolarri Media Enterprises as a television producer. After six years of low budget, but resourceful, video making she left Goolarri to spend time with two small kids. Those kids are now enthusiastic circus nuts and Clancy has been working at the ABC for over five years in the area of digital and social media.

She worked at the Derby Meat Processing Company for 11 years until it closed, then had a beautiful daughter while successfully completing a business degree at Notre Dame University. She continued work at the Broome Advertiser, Goolarri Media Enterprises and the Broome Historical Society, and she currently works at the Broome Public Library.
