The New Jersey Shakespeare Festival will add a new staff member, Debbie Chinn, who replaces Michael Stotts as managing director Jan. 10, 2000. Stotts has been with the Festival since 1990. Chinn comes to the Festival from her position as the Director of Events and Volunteer Activities for the San Francisco Symphony, an organization she served since 1994. She has also served as the Special Events Director for the Center Theatre Group in Los Angeles, setting up and directing events for the Mark Taper Forum, the Ahmanson Theatre and the James A. Doolittle Theatre.
Chinn will join NJSF artistic director Bonnie J. Monte in the running of the theatre.
