Personally spearheaded a highly successful community fund drive, raising over $600,000 in less than six months to "save" the historic Golden Bough Playhouse from destruction. Secured and negotiated purchase option, eventual purchase and additional $600,000 in financing for Golden Bough project. Initiated the Great Play Series on the main stage of the Golden Bough with Death of a Salesman and re-activated the historic Circle Theatre with the modern farce La Bete, both of which, Mr. Moorer directed, to critical acclaim. Developed a shared-use format with other community arts and cultural groups to maximize utilization of the facility during the established off-season. Oversaw initial renovation including re-design of Main Auditorium from proscenium movie theatre to partial thrust live performance stage, and lobby renovation and displays.

Created a series of challenging and exciting plays from the current international theater scene, presented as the main program of the GroveMont Theater Arts Center. Also developed a booking format for the engagement of touring concerts, poetry readings, independent artists, and workshops at the Arts Center.

Created the Central Coast’s largest attended cultural event (over 250,000 spectators to date). Featuring family oriented productions—classics, fairytales, commedias and historical reenactments—offered FREE each summer at Monterey’s historic Custom House Plaza, a division of the California State Parks System.

Created this annual arts festival, featuring a unique blend of shakespearean works, classics, musical and poetic works and lecture/workshops at Carmel’s historic Outdoor Forest Theater.

Successfully negotiated contract with Monterey Peninsula College officials which resulted in the development of the current off-campus drama program, providing theater-arts related classes and workshops to hundreds of area students, while also providing literally millions of dollars worth of major funding to numerous local arts organizations.

Created format for annual touring of fairytales, poetry, pocket-classics and musical programs to various locations throughout Monterey County.

With California State Parks officials, developed recognized training program for State Park Rangers and other Peace Officers, using GroveMont actors in situational role-playing scenarios.

With City of Monterey officials, developed joint project utilizing historical buildings to present recreations of California/Monterey history.
