Otherworld Theatre Company has announced that Katie Ruppert will step into the role of Managing Director, replacing founding Managing Director Mary-Kate Arnold who is moving into a dual role as the company’s Associate Artistic Director and Casting Director.

Ruppert will take over as Managing Director starting May 6, while still serving as the company’s Improv and Sketch Curator.

“I’m so proud to serve Otherworld Theatre Company,” comments Ruppert. “When I moved to Chicago I was looking to make work that was bolder, more elaborate, and more technical than the average theatre or comedy show. Whether you are a Science Fiction and Fantasy fanatic like myself, or a more casual theatre-goer; whether you are looking for laughs or a night of dramatic tension, Otherworld’s diverse selection of programming is for every audience member.”
