The Centre Stage Board of Directors is also pleased to announce a change in leadership. As a vital part of Centre Stage for the past several years, it is a natural progression for associate artistic director, Laura Nicholas, to transition into the role of Managing Artistic Director. Her energy, credentials, and creativity, combined with her vision for Centre Stage as an arts leader in our community, make her the ideal candidate.
“We are thrilled to welcome Laura in her new role during such a critical time in the life of the organization,” says Board President Nolan Merritt. “We are confident in Laura’s leadership and look forward to supporting her in this new capacity.”
The Board would like to thank Thom Seymour, Jr. for his leadership and care of the organization as interim executive and artistic director during the past year.
The Board is pleased to have Seymour continue as part of the Centre Stage team as the technical/facilities director.
Please celebrate with Centre Stage as we embark on a new era.
