The Community Players

Over the past 30 years, I have worked with many arts organizations. Most notably the last 17 as the Artistic Director and Producer with The Community Players of New Hamburg (TCP). TCP is a highly respected regional theatre company in Canada that produces several productions each year; one from a 700 seat main stage and the other from a more intimate 150 seat Studio Theatre. As Artistic Director and Producer,  I was a part of the strategic decision-making across all aspects of the organization including production, management and marketing. As the creative lead, I was the public voice and brand steward for the organization. This role also involved building the audience base, and ensuring fiscal success across the organization.

Skills at play: Creative, thought, and team leadership; brand stewardship; future planning and visioning; producer; production design; graphic design; scenic design; marketing and communications; communications between stakeholders; budgetary acumen; mentoring; fundraising.
