Our Executive Team consists of an Artistic Director, Managing Director, Production Manager, Director of Marketing, and Director of Development – all of which perform duties modeled off of small professional theatres. Like any nonprofit arts organization, Pipe Dreams Studio has a Board of Directors consisting of Millikin staff as well as Decatur community members. Members of our Board hold titles such as: Coleman Foundation Fellows, Actors Equity Association, and USITT members.

As a student venture founded by the Center for Entrepreneurship and the Department of Theatre and Dance, Pipe Dreams is comprised of and completely run by Millikin students with a passion for the performing arts. It offers a full season of great performance experiences in musical theatre and drama each year. Housed in a 90-seat blackbox theatre, audiences can expect casual, high quality shows that tear down walls and challenge viewers to think.

Pipe Dreams Studio Theatre is proud to be supported by Millikin’s School of Theatre & Dance, a school that has produced artists such as Sierra Boggess (The Little Mermaid, Broadway; Love Never Dies, West End), Annie Wersching (24, Fox Television), Jodi Benson (The Little Mermaid, Walt Disney Pictures), Tim Shew (Les Miserables, Broadway) as well as many others.
