Artistic Director


Danielle Trebus is a theatre educator and artist whose career has spanned 30 years, and encompassed performing, directing, costuming, playwriting, dramaturgy, devising, producing, arts administration and artistic consulting at theatres and companies of all sizes including Staley High School, University of Saint Mary, University of Missouri Kansas City, Oklahoma City Repertory Theatre Company, Gladstone Theatre in the Park, Accessible Arts, The Theatrical Company, Fundamental Theatre Company, Ibsen Dance Theatre and Trinity High School Alumni Thespians.

Ms. Trebus is very honored and proud to accept the position of Artistic Director for Gladstone Theatre in the Park. She has spent the last 30 summers involved with the company in one role or another and considers it the internship that made her life in the theatre. Danielle is especially thankful to the founders, Van and Susie Ibsen, for their mentorship, friendship and the many opportunities Gladstone Theatre in the Park has given her.

“I am the sum of all of the experiences I have had but none so much as Gladstone Theatre in the Park. I am a theatre artist formed by every actor and production team member, young and old, who I have worked with over the past 30 years. Thank you for being my teachers. I wouldn’t be who I am without all of you. I am excited to continue to produce summer theatre for the community of Gladstone and to continue to build upon its strong foundation. See you in the park!”
