In this our 30th season, we are proud to announce the newest additions to the Roseneath family…and for a change they are all grown-up staff, not new babies!
Our first welcome is something of a welcome back to Education & Marketing Manager, Gretel Meyer Odell. Gretel first worked with Roseneath Theatre alongside former Artistic Directors David S. Craig and Robert Morgan as Stage Manager for The Book of Miracles, Health Class and Dib and Dob and the Journey Home (with the original casts). You may also recognize Gretel as the originator of StoryMobs, – a flash mob style event where families come together to bring great children’s books to life and the designer of Fancy Pants Kids dress-up costumes for children. We are confident Gretel’s knack for engaging audiences of all ages will be a great asset for Roseneath.
Next we are excited to welcome Jim LeFrancois as Roseneath’s new Development Associate. An award-winning artist and producer, Jim is probably best known as for his 10 seasons as Artistic Producer with Buddies in Bad Times Theatre. We expect you will be hearing soon from Jim, as he reaches out to current Friends of Roseneath and, with luck he’ll be making new Friends along the way.
Finally we are pleased to introduce Kat Horzempa, our new Digital Media and Tour Coordinator. Traveler and theatre aficionado, Kat recently returned to Canada after spending the past two years teaching and producing theatre in Madrid, Spain. We are excited at the prospect of Kat’s newly-found language skills helping Roseneath to reach new audiences for this year’s production of La Maleta (The Suitcase) by Bea Pizano.
We hope you will join us in this warm welcome to our new family members.
