Director Of Operations
Rebecca (Becky) Dibben is the current Director of Operations for Great Plains Theatre (GPT). Becky has been active behind the scenes as a costumer for the theatre off and on since 2000. However she has helped the theatre in many other ways over the last 20 years. Becky and her family became active with GPT in 2001, when her son Nathan debuted as Christopher Robin in the Children’s Literature series. Since that time her husband Monte, Nathan, and grandchildren (Mackenzie, Ethan, and Nolan) have all performed in numerous performances at GPT. GPT has truly become a multigenerational family activity. Becky has also used her sewing skills to costume at Junction City Little Theatre and Chapman High School also for many years. In the spare time that she has, formal and bridal gown alterations keep her sewing machines working. Becky has been active in the community as a 4H community leader and county fair judge for many years working with youth and adults. Becky has a passion for GPT and its ongoing success for many years to come.
