Four County Players Board of Directors
Jeff Ward caught the theater bug at an early age watching his older brother play the lead in pretty much every Rodgers & Hammerstein musical ever written. Jeff’s own theater career peaked in eighth grade as Tully Bascomb in The Mouse That Roared. Fortunately, he has been able to stay connected to the theater with his daughter Amanda’s participation in the Laguna Playhouse Youth Theatre Conservatory in Laguna Beach, California, and his son Matty’s work at Four County: A Christmas Story: The Musical; The Best Christmas Pageant Ever; and Broadway, Our Way, and the 2019 DMR Junior Theater Festival team. The whole family fell in love with the amazing people on stage and behind the scenes at Four County, and we have really enjoyed pitching in with set builds, serving in the Bistro, managing the house, and even running a spotlight. Jeff went to the University of Virginia and was a fighter pilot in the United States Marine Corps after graduation. He has worked in information technology since leaving the service. Jeff is the proud husband of Karen Ward of Melbourne, Australia ,and father to Chelsea, Amanda, and Matty.
