Strawdog Theater Company has launched a search for a new artistic director. Currently, Ensemble Members Anderson Lawfer, Michael Dailey and Heath Hays split the duties, but the multiple-artistic-director model was a short-term solution to transition the company into their new space at 1802 W. Bernice.

Strawdog Board President Meaghan Clayton says that “after Hank Boland stepped down in July 2016, the Artistic Vision Committee was created and the appointed members tasked with producing the next season’s shows. Always intended to be an interim solution, now that we are settled in our new space, the board feels that it’s time to retire the AVC model and shift back to a single artistic director. We have started the search to find that person, and have opened the applications to the public, including our current ensemble members.”

More information about the job is available on the PerformInk Job Board.
