Coeur d'Alene Summer Theatre Staff
Stu Cabe - Artistic Director
Stu began his professional theatre career with Coeur d’ Alene Summer Theatre during the 1986 season as a company member of CST’s The Carousel Players. Thirty-three years later, Stu has done virtually everything there is to do in the CST world, from performer to technician, director to board member and is honored to be the 6th Artistic Director in the fifty-two year history of CST. Stu met his wife Callie in 1994’s production of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. Stu and Callie have two teenage kids, Madison and Jack, and have called CDA their home since 2003. CST also opened the door to theatre education, Stu’s eventual double Master’s degree in education, his current “day job” as a full time youth speaker. Stu now travels the country speaking to young people regarding anti-bullying. Stu loves Coeur d’Alene and is grateful to all who support live theatre in this community…and beyond.
