Our Team


The johnstons

We are excited to keep the Lexington Players’ Summer Program alive! Our family has been involved with the YouthStage company for over 10 years and we are so glad to be continuing Sal Jones’ legacy. We hope you can join us this summer!


mandy johnston - Excecutive director

Mandy is thrilled to be taking over for Sal Jones as the Executive Director of the YouthStage Summer Program. She loves kids, theater, and thrift shopping (in that order). Besides getting to know all the campers, she is most looking forward to shopping for costumes.


Cade johnston - sr. counselor & director

Cade’s first Lexington Players show was Seussical, way back at age 8. She is an Education major at Lesley University and can’t wait to direct The Little Mermaid Jr. this summer. She adores kids and has a stock of dum dum lollipops on hand at all times!


Natalie gorshkova - counselor

When Natalie isn’t busy swimming, working at a preschool, doing homework, or hanging out with friends, she’s planning activities for camp. She’s been doing shows with us for 4 years, but much prefers to be behind the scenes. Her favorite thing about camp is the free fruit roll-ups!


Gus Brookes - Counselor

Gus is the newest addition to The Lexington Players family, but it seems like he’s been with us for ten years! An Education major at Lesley University, he is also a master beatboxer and an experienced A Capella performer.


Tatum Johnston - counselor

Tatum joined us as a camper in 2013 and has moved up the ranks to become a Counselor. She has a deep love of musical theatre and has been in 19 shows. She is counting down the days ‘til camp starts!
