Patron Saints: Karen Roe


Patron Saints: Karen Roe

Each week, The Observer posts a Patron Saints video featuring patrons of performing-arts groups and the venues to which they donate.

This week, Karen Roe talks about her experience with The Players Theatre of Sarasota. Friends directed Roe to The Players as a cure for her daughter Grace’s shy behavior — she couldn’t order at restaurants or make any eye contact. Grace took an acting class there, and now she’s starring in The Player’s Kids and The Players’ productions. Roe believes every child should have this opportunity, which is why she donates.

Visit to hear the full story. If you’re new to the series, you can view every video through the same link. Be sure to check back to Scene and Heard each week to learn about the next Patron Saint.
