The CAB Drivers

Our Team

Danny BeardOur faithful board president, Danny is fairly new to theatre, having been involved behind the scenes with both CAB and Baraboo Theatre Guild for the past 5 to 6 years. Not an actor, he designs and builds sets for plays, though he’s also been a set-builder-in-wolf’s-clothing in a MaCABre production. He is a part of the Teens N Theatre oversight committee.

Bill Greenhalgh: Currently board vice president, Bill performs in CAB original productions, participates in the CABImprov group, and heads up the CAB stand-up comedy program. Studied acting at Princeton University under Prof. Daniel Seltzer, performed live radio comedy on Radio Free Oz in Los Angeles, and starred in several high school plays many, many years ago!

Molly Maslin Arbogast: Holding a virtually useless Bachelor’s degree in Theatre Arts, Molly still plays in theatre (Lombardi, Grease and Wedding Italiano at the Palace Theater, W;t at University of Wisconsin-Baraboo/Sauk County), and has a sordid history in television (Judging Amy), film (Idle Hands) and commercials (third pomegranate picker for Pom Juice, starry-eyed young lover in political re-election campaign, political party to remain unnamed). She also recently discovered she won't render anyone deaf with her singing, so can be found doing so on stage, in the car, at work and, much to her cat's chagrin, around the house. A founding member of RAVE Theatre and VIP Productions, Molly now serves as a CAB Theatre's treasurer and Communications and Membership Coordinator, as well as on the TnT Oversight Committee. She has also performed for CAB, embarrassed her family with Improv, stand-up comedy, written original works, and heads up the newly launched House Plays.

Bev Choutka: Serving as our secretary, Bev is always busy, not only with all of her jobs, but Bev’s biggest extracurricular activity is that she loves being involved in theatre. Bev is involved with Zona Gale Young People’s Theatre at Portage Center for the Arts. She loves being part of ZGYPT, because through theatre, young people learn to see reality in a new way and to revise prejudices. Being part of the world of drama, young people become empowered to shape and re-shape their lives. As the “Stage Mom”, she especially enjoys seeing her young people grow, mature and develop paths for their future through theatre. She is also involved with the Portage Center for the Arts and their performing Art Series, she sits on the board with Portage Area Community Theatre and has been involved with Portage High School musicals for 3 years. Bev says working behind the scenes is as rewarding as it is challenging and enjoys bringing quality live theatre to the community. 

Scott Rawson: A founding member and current Artistic Director of CAB this is the second theater company Scott has begun, the other being R.A.V.E. (Rogues and Vagabonds Entertainment) which was sold. Scott's theatrical background began in Madison at Broom Street Theater. He acted in several plays, wrote and directed a couple more and then went on to co-write yet a few others. He was embraced by the theater community here in Baraboo, and has made that his permanent base. He works for the Veterans Museum out of Madison on numerous occasions, engaging in their autumn school project of Cemetery tours. He has been featured in many independent and commercial films. Scott currently is the Director for both youth workshops; Play in a weekend and Teens n Theater, as well as Showtime Youth Musical Theatre. Scott has written and directed for CAB's nights of original works.

Erica Cochrane: Bringing her stupendous talent for wearing many hats, Erica is unofficially CAB’s grant manager and strategic planning facilitator. Erica is most involved in CAB’s youth theatre work as an integral team member to Play in a Weekend, Teens N Theatre, and Showtime Youth Musical Theatre; however, she can often be seen on stage, in the light booth, or otherwise running around trying (pretending?) to be helpful at other CAB events. Erica grew up in the Madison theatre community and majored in drama at the University of California… for a semester, at which point she decided to be a serious conservation biologist and save large charismatic megafauna instead of prance around on stage. About 5 years ago, after a 20-year hiatus, Erica found home again with her theatre peeps in the Baraboo community.

Carrie Hanson: A board member since 2016, Carrie has helped CAB backstage (mainly applying sheer genius and a lot of hot glue to props) for Original Works productions and CABin Fever, as well as having a few walk-on parts. She's decided to expand her participation level and try organizing a future CAB event. Be on the lookout and clear the sidewalks as she takes the yellow cab for a spin!

Joe Colossa:

Iveta Petkova-Ball: a recent CAB board member, Iveta has performed in CAB's productions of original works, and House Plays. Iveta became involved with community theatre a few years ago with a role in CAB's short play by Kelly Dwyer "Loosing it". Since then, she has portrayed characters in MaCABre and CAB Confessions. She also performs in Baraboo Theatre Guild's dinner theatre. When she is not on stage, Iveta teaches 4K at St. Joseph School and works at the Baraboo Public Library.
