Tana started working at the theater in 2005 and has been our General Manager since 2006. She plans a mean employee party and works hard to make sure our customers and staff enjoy their time at The Garland. As a kid, Tana really wanted to be a school teacher–now she works hard managing the theater and raising her two children.
Ryan joined The Garland Theater team in 2015. His guilty pleasure is ice cream but his favorite theater snack is definitely popcorn! Ryan dreams of being an animator at Pixar someday.
Jasmine started work at the theater as a concession-selling extraordinaire. Quickly realizing the world of tickets and popcorn was too small for the likes of her, she started slinging drinks in Bon Bon. Her three favorite things in the world include bears, Abraham Lincoln and her friend Stephen Theodore Colvin. We totally understand two of those loves.
Though Ama wanted to be a professional figure skater as a child, she now strives to become a published author. Ama has been a great addition to the team as of 2015. Ama never forgets her Sour Patch Kids when watching a movie at the historical Garland Theater.
Frankly speaking, when asked to fill out a questionnaire about himself, Christopher gave really boring answers. This is unfortunate as he has revealed himself to be hilarious, articulate, passionate about movies and a dear friend to his fellow co-workers. This little turtle just came outta his shell.
Adrian wanted to become a pilot after the first time he saw Top Gun (didn’t we all?). Presently, Adrian has a weakness for tacos and Gilmore Girls. He is an aspiring writer/story teller.
Appropriately enough, when Cabby was little she wanted to be a director and would make all her friends “rehearse” during recess. She now helps us run Bon Bon and will tell you on the sly that one thing most people don’t know about our bar employees is that they are all good dancers. When she’s not slingin’ sin behind the bar, she enjoys a classy, smoky martini while watching really crazy reality TV shows.
Maya started working at the theater in 2013. Her favorite concessions snack is popcorn, of course! When Maya was little she wanted to build things or be a fairy.
When asked what animal he would be if given the choice, he stated he would choose the life of a bear-hawk. Half bear, half hawk, all awesome. He joined us in 2012 and we’ve never been the same.
Ben’s favorite things are swimming, singing and friendship. His favorite movie snack is plain ol’ buttered popcorn. (He’s come to the right place!) Ben became a member of the Garland family in 2016 and it would not be the same without him!
Kelly has been keeping The Garland and Bon Bon in fine running order for a while now. If he could be any animal, he would be a crow which is totally fitting as he is great at keeping a bird eye view of all that is going on with our lovely, historic building. Kelly makes fast friends with all he meets and in his free time enjoys sailing, Old Fashioneds, and cough drops.
Since Crystal joined our team in 2017 we have learned so much about her but maybe even more about her dog, Cosmos (as pictured). Crystal spends her free time looking at photos or watching videos of her beloved canine friend. We’re glad she can tear herself away from him long enough to lend us a hand at the theater!
If Kitana were an animal she’d want to be a duck, but not just any duck. Kitana would be the Alfac! duck. Since she began working at the theater in 2017, Kitana has learned that the theater “requires soooo much cleaning.” When she’s not busy cleaning, Kitana enjoys hanging with her best friend Jaxon or watching Grey’s Anatomy.
