Karen Thorn

Secretary

Karen has been involved in many aspects of philanthropy within the greater Medina area over the years, but community theater has a special place in her heart. In 2004 her daughter auditioned for a role in CAMEO’s production of The Music Man, and Karen was asked to help backstage. During that production she saw the importance of producing quality community theater and the positive impact it had on the students.

Over the years Karen was given additional responsibilities and, in 2014, she took on the role of Director of Marketing for the CAMEO production of RENT. She also led the “Free RENT” raffle which was successful as a fundraiser and let the community explore the importance of “paying it forward.”

The next logical step was to join the Board in 2018, where she currently serves as Secretary. Karen shares the vision of the Cameo Creative Arts Board to produce quality theater, and she is an advocate for making the arts accessible and entertaining to a diverse audience. She also believes that theater provides enrichment for our youth, and champions for continued partnership with the Medina City Schools.

Karen retired from a 30 year career in sales, and has resided in Medina for over 40 years. She and her husband, Greg, have 2 daughters and enjoy theater, travel, and friends.
