News   Staff Changes Afoot at R&H Theatricals, Which Licenses a Few of Your Favorite Things
R&H Theatricals, the theatrical licensing division of The Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization, has recently promoted several longtime staff members, and welcomes a new manager.

Charlie Scatamacchia, formerly director of professional licensing, is now vice president of The Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization in charge of R&H Theatricals.

Michelle Yaroshko joins the company as manager for professional licensing. Current staff member Jessica Wells has been promoted to the position of manager for amateur licensing.

"I am delighted with these promotions, and the new addition to our team," said R&H Organization president Ted Chapin, in a statement. "Charlie and Jessica have worked tirelessly for their customers over the years, and will continue to do so, and Michelle brings fresh perspective to this ever-changing and challenging field. I also love the fact that both Charlie and Michelle come from across the footlights. Both have been professional performers, and members of Actors' Equity, and Michelle comes to us from having worked with the Rockettes. There can be no better qualifications in terms of knowing first-hand what our customers go through, and what they need."

Charlie Scatamacchia has been with R&H since 1996. Prior to that he was a professional actor, whose credits included national tours of Zorba starring Anthony Quinn and Fiddler on the Roof starring Herschel Bernardi.

Michelle Yaroshko was most recently an associate producer for the Radio City Music Hall Rockettes, and as an Equity performer, appeared in more than 40 shows nationwide; she is also a member of SSDC. Jessica Wells joined R&H in 2000, serving as a licensing agent.

R&H Theatricals licenses over 100 musicals and represents more than 200 authors. Joining such classic perennials as Oklahoma!, The Sound of Music and Annie Get Your Gun are Smokey Joe's Café, Floyd Collins, Cats, The Threepenny Opera and more.
