When Joe Powell joined the Peacock Playhouse board we had a small town theatre mindset. As board president, Joe led us through a strategic planning and rebranding initiative from which we emerged the Peacock Performing Arts Center with a dynamic vision for the future and the courage to act on it. We still live in a small town, but thanks to Joe Powell we have a big city approach to the arts!.
