Marissa Collins | Marketing Director

“Backstage is a buzz as sets are loaded-in, visiting talent settles-in, and mics are checked; the hallway is a flurry of playbills, volunteers, and last minute preparations; the lobby is electric as patrons eagerly anticipate the moment the doors are closed, the theatre goes dark, and the curtain rises. Every day I work for this moment – and I love it.”

Marissa holds a Bachelor of Science degree from WSU in Social Science, and completed the Graphic Design Sequence from WVC – where she now serves on the Graphic Design Advisory Committee. She has managed the Numerica PAC’s marketing since 2012, including advertising, communications, media relations, graphic design, sponsorship fulfillment, website and social media management, and more. She works behind the scenes to make sure you know what is happening and who made it possible.


Alex Haley | Program Manager

Although technically born in California, Alex considers himself a Wenatchee native, but more specifically an East Wenatchee native being part of the infamous class of 2006. Naturally, he returned to the land of apples after graduating from Western Washington University with a business degree in-hand and student loans in his eyes. In no particular order, Alex loves movies, theater, and craft beer. Overall, he tries to be as active in the community as possible and loves contributing to anything that makes Wenatchee exceptional.



mike-lockeMichael Locke | Operations Manager

Mike is a theatre designer and technician working in the Northwest. Mike holds a Bachelors of Music Performance and a Masters of Fine Art in Theatre Design and Technology from the University of Idaho. His lighting and sound designs can be found at numerous theatres in Central Washington.

When not in the theatre, Mike performs with the Wenatchee Valley Symphony and enjoys spending time with this wife Andrea and daughters, Kelly and Nicole.



kelly-wavraKelly Wavra | Office Manager

Farmer’s daughter and farmer at heart, Kelly  loves to have her feet in the dirt in the spring, in the mud in the summer, and in the leaves in the fall (but not in the winter snow without her boots). However, she loves the snow, and after spending many years ticketing at Mission Ridge she brings that experience to the box office here at the Numerica PAC.

Wife of one and mother of two gives Kelly experience of a different kind, juggling, which is also a necessary part of her job here. Not only does she manage the office she also organizes the team of volunteers and keeps the concessions bar running. On show nights, Kelly will be found backstage providing hospitality for the performers before the show. Whatever the season she’s happy at the Numerica PAC. “I love theater and the business of theater.”
