Making Northern Arizona University Theater glitter like gold

From the minute Robin Felton, 1984 BS, arrived at Northern Arizona University from Detroit in 1980, she knew she was in the right place. 

With the small, beautiful campus and attentive faculty she felt “embraced” and is proud to have learned “how to go out there in the world and be the best person [she] can possibly be.” And this best person strongly believes in giving back to the university.

In 2008 she and her husband Jim began the Alumni Golden Stagehands, a matching gift theater enhancement program, which positively influences students and colorfully embellishes Northern Arizona University Theatre productions. Those productions include 2009’s A Christmas Carol, one of the first to acquire state-of-the-art special effects because of this funding. Nadine Lombardi, 2012 BA in theater, says of the Feltons’ gift, “It’s great that successful artists who graduated from Northern Arizona University now give back, fostering a new generation of dedicated artists.”
