BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Reba Hervas, President

Reba founded Overshadowed Theatrical Productions in 2004. After 25 years in education and church ministry, Reba realized a need for Christian theatre in an entertainment-driven society. It’s Reba’s desire that everyone enjoy the variety of drama that this kind of theatre company can provide. Audiences at Overshadowed can consider the strong family atmosphere seen in Fiddler on the Roof or be moved by the Easter story depicting the passion week of Christ or laugh with Snoopy in You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.

It is her sincerest desire that audiences be blessed and entertained by the performances of this theatre company.

Reba earned her degree in Speech Education from Bob Jones University. She resides in Itasca, Illinois, with her husband, and she is blessed with three adult children and one grandchild.
