New Board Members

Tim Barretto taught writing, public speaking, and literature at the University of New Hampshire’s Thompson School of Applied Science for over thirty years before retiring in May 2017. He is currently Professor Emeritus at UNH. He has spent most of his adult life pursuing ways to eliminate child abuse, and in that capacity has served as a passionate advocate for children through serving on boards and promoting public education about the need to value and protect our children. Tim has served as an Advisor to the Elephant-in-the-Room Series® since its inception and serves as Chair of the EITR Advisory Committee: "I have believed for many, many years that theater connects us not just to essential ideas about humanity that we need to think about, but more importantly to some of the deepest parts of ourselves and others that we can learn from. For me, NHTP is absolutely in the vanguard of helping us to make these connections between ourselves and others."

Company Artist Monique Peaslee Foote serves on the NHTP Board as Artist Liaison, She holds a BA in Performance from New England College and an MA in Educational Theater from New York University. Her recent professional acting credits include productions at Hackmatack Playhouse: Judy in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime, Truvy in Steel Magnolias, half the women of Almost, Maine; Carol in Seacoast Rep’s Laughter on the 23rd Floor; Frank Goodman in Men on Boats, and as the inspector in An Inspector Calls both at NHTP.  "NHTP creates smart and innovative pieces that challenge audiences and creators to think and engage. We humans learn and feel together when we witness and create art. Theater and all that it encompasses is where I feel most at home. Its language resonates with me unlike anything else in the universe. NHTP has a unique and beautiful standard that they hold their work to and I’m proud to be a part of the stories told and conversations that begin here."
