Board of Directors


Chicago is arguably the most vital theatre city in the country, and, as a theatre-loving family, we want to do everything we can to support that. So many theatre artists in Chicago struggle to find the resources to bring their visions to life. Our goal with the Bayless Family Foundation is to help offer greater possibilities to Chicago's theatre community. - Rick, Deann, Lanie and Kevin.
