The Governing Board of Directors

Darrell Rodenbaugh
Darrell RodenbaughPresident
Darrell joined the Board of Directors in 2010 and served pro bono as its Executive Director through 2011, guiding PCT through financial difficulties. He has since been elected Board President for eight consecutive terms leading the Plano Children’s Theatre to grow 400% and evolve into the North Texas Performing Arts.

Darrell created the AMP Awards, the ACE’s (Acting Company for Excellence), the North Texas Performing Arts structure, the “Ten Characters”, and the NTPA Academy. Under his leadership, other new programs were successfully launched including the Frisco Youth Theatre, the Fairview Youth Theatre, NTPA Dallas, the Starcatcher Theatre Troupe and the Repertory Theatre.

Darrell was critical to the creation of the Willow Bend Center of the Arts, working with Starwood Retail Partners to provide the space and negotiated terms. He secured financing, engaged the construction partner and designed much of the facility, serving full-time for almost two years on a pro bono basis as Project Executive. He recruited and worked alongside the incredible “Team of Steel” volunteers who generously contributed their time and talent to design and construction.

Darrell and Lisa Rodenbaugh and their children Chris and Lee donated the largest cash gift in NTPA’s history to help underwrite the Willow Bend effort.

Lisa has served in volunteer roles for a dozen years at NTPA and was the creator of the “Curtain Club”, the precursor to the current NTPA Membership Program and volunteer system. Lisa serves on the NTPA Repertory Theatre Management Board and is its Programming Chair. Chris and Lee were founding members of the ACE’s and together participated in over 70 NTPA productions. Chris is a Junior at Loyola at Chicago, and Lee is a Freshman at Baylor University.

Darrell is a Plano-area investor and volunteer who spent twenty-five years in the high-tech industry in sales, sales management, and general manager roles with IBM, Oracle, Yahoo!, i2 Technologies, and prior to this role was SVP and General Manager for McAfee’s global $300M Mid-Market business division. He went on to create “Champion Life Safety Solutions”, a security and life-safety services company which he sold in 2016. Darrell is a graduate and now Trustee at Washburn University and earned his MBA at the University of Houston.
