Nyk Sutter-Downs (Theatre Manager): Nyk Sutter-Downs began his involvement with CST nearly 20 years ago as Dream Ballet Curly in Oklahoma and instantly fell in love with Corn Stock Theatre. No stranger to the local community theatre scene, Nyk has not only been on stage, he has also been involved off stage in many capacities from serving on the Marketing Committee, to lighting execution, to direction and choreography. Corn Stock is very near and dear to his heart as he met, proposed, and married the love of his life right here under the tent. Prior to Corn Stock, he worked as the General Manager at The Waterhouse Banquet and Catering Facility in downtown Peoria. He is beyond thrilled to bring Corn Stock into the next decade and looks forward to many more years of magic under the tent!
