Gee, she hardly unpacked her theatrical bags and Joanie Schultz announced her departure from WaterTower Theatre.
According to WaterTower Theatre Board President Grace Daniels, “I joined the board around the same time that Joanie was hired and was able to witness the impact of her artistic vision. It was during these seasons the theatre was able to engage with existing and new audience members from a different creative perspective, all while garnering outstanding reviews and awards.
“We as a board have made a commitment to continue building on and protecting the theatre’s legacy, established in part by former Producing Artistic Director, Terry Martin. Martin has graciously extended his willingness to offer guidance during the transition and to help us honor relationships with our long-standing supporters all while continuing to introduce the theatre to new audience members. I would also like to thank the leadership of the town of Addison who continue to provide invaluable support and words of advice as we work through this time of transition.”
Wasn’t it just a couple of months ago that WaterTower Theatre General Manager Nick Even turned in his resignation?
Under Joanie’s and Nick’s leadership, WaterTower has made some headlines for more avant-garde productions in feeling its way into the 21st century. Growing pains can be a royal pain, don’t you know.
