The CSP Board

Who We Are

Amanda Anderberg

Advisory Board Member

Amanda has dabbled in theater throughout her life, first on the stage as a child and through high school. She started sewing with private lessons when she was nine and, under the guidance of her incredible theater teacher her senior year, finally combined her two passions and began costume design. Through college she did a brief stint with both Utah Opera and Symphony in the costume shop and a summer at the Utah Shakespearean Festival.  CSP became a second home when her daughter joined the cast of The Little Mermaid, and after years away from her craft, Amanda began to volunteer making costumes for CSP in Spring 2016.  She is beyond grateful for the family that CSP has become and the chance to constantly grow and challenge herself in the art of costuming.  Amanda lives in Escondido with her two beautiful daughters and her incredibly supportive husband, Paul.  When they are not at CSP, they run a local business (The Place That Ships) and Amanda also runs a home business.

Rachel Dunford

Executive Board Member

Rachel became involved with CSP when her daughter began performing in shows.  She started with CSP working on the creation of props and working backstage for every show, and has added to that the role of Executive Board member.  She assists in many aspects of running this non-profit and finds it to be such a valuable asset to our community providing such a professional experience to the youth in our area.  Her background is in real estate and business in general, which helps when it comes to understanding the financial side of this organization.   Working with CSP is a priority not just an option and she  will always treasure what this organization has given our family and every family that enters through the doors.

Heidi Levin joined the advisory board in 2007 when her youngest son, Daniel, was able to join his older brother, Matthew, at CSP. She stepped up to the Executive Board a couple of years later and has been heavily involved ever since.  Heidi handles many of the administrative tasks for CSP including being the voice on the other end of the phone.  During the shows, Heidi is the Backstage Manager and vows that “no child will ever miss a cue on her watch.” CSP is truly a family adventure as her husband, Steve, joins in - working up in the Sound Booth during shows.
