Board of Directors
Eric Scherer (Founder and President): Ever since I was a child, I have been been fascinated with performing. It is a passion that is fueled by the love and talent of my fellow artists. As I got older, I wanted the opportunity to explore new and exciting ways of creating productions. From this, Actors Reaching Out was born. There is magic in the world, and we are here to use it to touch people's lives. That is why I AM ARO.
Favorite Book- I grew up in a library, so I have a lot. I read everything.
Favorite Musical- There are so many great ones... Wicked was my first and will always hold a special place in my heart, but I also love the Wedding Singer and Carrie.
