President – Michael J. Suit, DVM
Michael enjoyed performing in several musicals during his high school experience. He graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Recreation and Tourism, and then completed a DVM degree at Colorado State University in 2006. His love for horses has kept him busy caring for clients and their horses along the Front Range of Colorado ever since.
His involvement with HAA began out of a pinnacle moment one random afternoon at Harrington Arts Alliance (HAA), and after that he was hooked. He and his fabulous wife, Kyla, are busy raising three very active children, and HAA has been a focal point of his family’s life for many years, a home away from home. Both Michael and Kyla enjoy spending countless hours assisting in multiple aspects of HAA, and have found it to be a very special place for everyone in their family. He hopes you and your family will visit HAA and attend a performance if you already have not had the opportunity to experience the “magic” within the walls of this amazing place.
Director of Communication – Michael Landreth
My personal goal is to make a profound impact in the lives of people by promoting wellness. I don’t just say this, I practice it! I have trained and produced content in communication psychology and instructional design since I started with Apple in 2013. Through my understanding of the human psyche I am able to help people and business teams reflect, identify and expand beyond the bounds they have created for themselves. My main tools for this are mindfulness and a contemplative approach to education and theater. I love reading Tarot cards and offering Reiki healing in my private practice as a way to help people refocus themselves and get the most out of their day. I am excited to contribute my time and energy to HAA because of my love for the Harrington family. They truly help people of all ages have a transformative relationship with theater and I am so thankful for the work they do.

Erin lives in Ft. Collins with her family. She has been an educator for the last 24 years. She currently teaches 3rd grade at Ponderosa Elementary School in Thompson School District. As an educator Erin sees all types of students with different strengths and needs. Making sure that youth in the Loveland area have a place to shine that is outside of school is important to Erin, HAA is a magical place that finds a way to make everyone feel special.
She is a Colorado native and loves spending time outside and enjoying all the beauty of our state. She is married with 2 sons. She sometimes feels that her second job is a taxi driver for her children. One son in very sports- oriented and the other is very involved in theatre and HAA. Before her son’s involvement in HAA she did not have much experience with the performing arts. HAA has been transformational for her son who found “ his people” there. She has felt so lucky to have a place for her son to grow in both his performing and in finding himself. Erin hopes that everyone can get the chance to learn about and visit HAA in one way or another and meet the special people that call it home.
