Pioneer Place Staff:
Dan Barth – Owner, Executive Director – PPTC
Dan Barth is the guy with an idea. When he is not shooting or editing videos with his video production company DMR, Dan can be found being the mastermind behind what goes on at Pioneer Place not only for concerts, but as Executive Director, and acting Artistic Director for Pioneer Place Theatre Company as well. You can usually catch him slinging drinks behind the back bar on concert nights, or making the curtain speeches before/during shows, and occasionally you can find him on stage crooning a tune or two.
Mark Barth – Owner, Manager – Veranda Lounge
The grease to our wheels that keep Pioneer Place running – we are quite certain that this building would have fallen down long ago without Mark Barth keeping everything ship shape. Besides being the constant fix-itremodel/maintenance man for Pioneer Place and DB Searle’s/Nick’s Third Floor, you can also find Mark behind the back bar at Pioneer Place on most concert nights pouring drinks, and telling stories, or helping his sons Nick and Andy with DB Searle’s/Nick’s Third Floor.
Jay Terry – Artistic Director – PPTC
Jay Terry joins us this season in a new role, as Artistic Director of the Pioneer Place Theatre Company. As a St. Cloud native, Jay has worked in the local theatre scene nearly all his life. You may have seen him on stage in The Importance of Being Ernest, One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, Chicago, Jesus Christ Superstar, Laughing All The Way I and III, and The Who’s Tommy. Jay is also part of the comedy genius behind the writing on Laughing All The Way, and The Veranda Variety Hour. He is very excited to be joining our team full-time and looks forward to getting to meet so many of our patrons.
