The Theatre Under The Stars (TUTS) Board of Directors announced February 15 a national search to select a permanent artistic director. The official launch of the search comes nearly one year after Sheldon Epps joined the TUTS family as artistic advisor; Epps will depart the Texas company to make way for a more permanent artistic director.
“I am so very proud of the work that we have done together and all that we have accomplished in a very short amount of time that has led to a remarkable season at TUTS,” said Epps in a statement. “I am happy to continue with TUTS in my current capacity at least until that anniversary date, and have been pleased to supervise the planning for the upcoming season.”
The not-for-profit theatre looks toward its 50th anniversary—the theatre was founded in 1968—and welcomes a new executive director, Hillary Hart.
AlbertHall&Associates, the full-service consulting and executive recruiting firm specializing in the non-profit arts sector, will conduct the search for artistic director. The firm handled the search for Hart.
