Jon Chin (Board Member)
I joined Kids on Broadway after seeing
several of their fine musical performances. I have a passion for
kids and musical theatre and I am all for promoting kids self esteem
through creative channels. I also joined the Kids on Broadway Board
so that I may be the unofficial "ambassador" of upcoming musical
productions and events. I truly believe that Santa Cruz County is an
area rich with untapped natural theatrical talent and it will be my job
to get other people excited about it. Jon is a Deputy Assessor for Business Properties for the County of Santa Cruz.

aspects of working together in a non-profit children's theater group.
Set construction is very fun and rewarding. I've been around for a
while and I'm not done yet. THE BEST IS YET TO COME!” Outside of KOB,
