Lucinda Surber and Stan Ulrich are long-time West Bay Opera volunteers. Their association with West Bay Opera began with the performance of Il Trovatore in February 1998, when Stan ran his first supertitles, a job he has continued through the current opera. Lucinda’s first job was projecting the Ghost Words in The Turn of the Screw in May 1998. In the October 1998 performance of The Italian Girl in Algiers, Lucinda learned to run the sound board, a job she has continued through the current opera. In 2001, Lucinda also began taking performance pictures, and ran the official West Bay Opera website from 2001–2009.

When they aren’t volunteering for West Bay Opera, Lucinda and Stan work on Stop, You’re Killing Me! — an award-winning web resource for lovers of mystery, crime, thriller, spy, and suspense books and Lucinda maintains Bookworm for Kids.
