Lauren McComas | Artistic Director & President


Lauren began her theatre career in New Jersey at age 5. She has been on the stage for over 100 different productions in theatres up and down the East Coast, as well as in California and Indiana. 

She received her BA in Theatre after studying at Messiah College, Temple University, and the Gaiety School of Acting in Dublin, Ireland. You can now occasionally spot her as a guest host on QVC. Stagelight is her childhood dream-come-true. Lauren is thrilled to be on this journey with her amazing husband and 3 small children. Praise God from whom all blessings flow!


Bethanie Emery I Operations Manager

Bethanie Emery has been involved with SALT and Stagelight since 2014.  She left her career in Higher Education Administration to raise her children full time, and was looking for a creative outlet to use her skills while staying home. Stagelight came along just at the right time!  Bethanie loves overseeing the day to day operations of the business and she occasionally gets the privilege of working directly with Stagelight students.  Bethanie has a background in stage performance since college where she traveled up and down the East Coast performing for youth events, churches, and amusement parks.  Her passion for both community growth and enhancing the lives of our children makes her a great fit for Stagelight.  Bethanie lives in Chester County with her husband and 3 young kids.
