From Carrie Wintersteen, Executive Director, Co-Founder of Theatre B:
“Thank you for joining us this season. With Mr. Burns, a post-electric play, we’ve closed the books on Season 19 and will now begin the exciting work of preparation for Season 20.
Theatre B is in a good position, with loyal members, a dedicated core audience, supportive landlords, the artistic energy of the ensemble, and a mission as vital as ever.
Our challenge now is the market. The nonprofit sector – and particularly the arts – has taken a serious hit over the last few years. Many arts workers have left the sector for more stable and lucrative positions. Whether we look outside the company or mentor from within, we’ll need to be creative to attract and retain the right talent.
But I see this moment as an opportunity to imagine the next 20 years and prepare Theatre B to flourish and grow as a community treasure, even after its founders retire. We have a great team to do the work of succession planning, and my hope is that if there are gaps in our knowledge or relationships, our fans – YOU – will step forward with support, introductions, and expertise to help guide our path.
Important work takes time. My transition will happen at some point; it’s just going to be a little longer than I anticipated.”
