Helming Glow’s new development program is long-term Greenville resident Leigh Miller, who brings over 20 years of nonprofit and corporate development experience to South Carolina’s only professional opera and musical theatre company. A former member of the TedX Greenville Salon planning team, a frequent helping hand at Centre Stage, and an event planner for both the business and arts communities, Miller views GLOW as her next opportunity to continue to build the Upstate’s glowing arts and music scene.
“What’s captivated me about Glow since its inception is their fusion of opera, operetta, and musical theatre,” says Miller. It’s this unique blend of Upstate originals that has Miller ready to build on an organization that has reached new Greenville artistic audiences, as well as brought in new opera and theatre lovers to The Upstate from across the South East.
“I’m looking forward to working with the GLOW team and artists to help GLOW grow as Greenville Grows,” says Miller. “GLOW’s strength is not only in its commitment to bringing high quality productions of unique theatre to the Upstate, but its mission of access, advocacy, diversity and collaboration for arts in the Upstate community. Jenna and Christian excel in their leadership and commitment to this mission, and we look forward to inviting the Upstate arts and business communities to joining us.”
Miller’s new project will be joined by Greenville stage manager, writer, and Carolina Curtain Call theatre critic Jeff Levene.
“What I love about GLOW is how easy it is to get in tune with their message and the socially conscious work they’re pushing,” says Levene. “There’s so much incredible theatre happening right now in the Upstate, and being able to be a part of productions that push for positive change in our community makes the work even more rewarding.”
GLOW is set to announce their Upcoming season later this month. But regardless of what shows and theme their upcoming season will tackle, you can be sure that in 2018, GLOW will be on the grow.
