Meet the Staff


Suzi Peterson has been Managing Director at A2CT since 2001. She’s originally from California where she was in the music business for many years. Actors are not that different from musicians in the way they work, so here she is in the theatre business. She met her amazing husband here at A2CT; has two (mostly) adult kids--one of whom is an actress in New York--and a lovable dog. She gets teary-eyed when seeing each and every one of the Civic shows, overwhelmed at the talent and proud of the comraderie of the cast and crew.

Cassie Mann's involvement with A2CT dates back to 1976, when she was a mere teenager fresh from Pioneer High School.  Cassie acted in Civic shows when home on breaks from Central Michigan University, and then when she moved back to A2 in 1984. Since then, Cassie met and married a fellow A2CT actor, had two kids who also participated in theater, and became the program director in 2001. She directs plays when she can, and loves everything Civic!
