heart house board & committee members


eva thorpe

president & founder

Eva's theatre background consists of an odd assortment of costuming (Miracle on 34th Street, The SpongeBob Musical, How to Succeed, The Addams Family, Spring Awakening), stage managing (Annie, The Miracle Worker, The King & I...), lighting (Seussical, Into the Woods), and co-writing a musical with Clara in college that ended up in an off-broadway festival (a long and strange story). Eva conceived Heart House in 2016 and legally established it in 2017 after months of research and planning. Her goal was to create a place for her brother Michael to continue his involvement in musical theatre, one of his life long passions, after finishing high school and from there it snowballed into a huge collaborative experience. There's nothing more fulfilling than watching from the curtains as performers take their final bow and receive standing ovations. 

Eva has appeared somewhere on stage in every Heart House production, and will continue to do so just in case it's good luck...
