WOW! Celebrates Its 5th Anniversary

Women of WaterTower Theatre was founded 5 years ago on October 16, 2008 by founding Co-Chairs Shannon Brame and Karol Omlor.  What started out with a group of 20 founding members that first event held at the home of Shannon Brame on October 16 quickly grew to a dynamic group of women with a membership totaling 165 today. 

WOW! has contributed thousands of dollars to WaterTower Theatre in direct and indirect financial support.  The group has enjoyed more than 40 events that have ranged from celebrity cooking demonstrations by Kent Rathbun to performances of world-class live theatre at WaterTower Theatre.

WOW! has set and continues to set the stage for what a dynamic women's donor group can be for a live professional theatre company.  It's fun, exciting, and enlightening and offers hours upon hours of socializing and networking all in a theatre setting.

Thank you to the many members of WOW! who have made this group so special and to our founding Chairs Ms. Brame and Mrs. Omlor, and our current Chairs Mrs. Oliver and Mrs. Bosworth for your dedication and commitment.
