The Book-It Repertory Theatre’s Board of Directors has announced that Daniel Mayer will become managing director of the 25-year-old non-profit theatre company beginning October 29th. The company has been operating with Founding Co-Artistic Director Myra Platt as acting managing director since August.
Daniel Mayer was, most recently, the executive director at Kirkland Performance Center, a position he has held since 2008. During his tenure at KPC, he shepherded the organization through the recession, leading the arts group through a strategic planning process that resulted in a new business plan. “After careful consideration,” said Book-It Board President Stuart Frank, “we selected Daniel from the group of finalists because of the breadth and depth of experience that we believe makes him uniquely and perfectly suited to lead Book-It at this time.”
Prior to joining Kirkland Performance Center, Mayer worked for a variety of arts organizations in a variety of capacities, including Spectrum Dance Theater, the Empty Space Theatre, On the Boards, and Photographic Center Northwest.
Book-It’s Silver Jubilee season began in September with I Am of Ireland and continues in November with a presentation of Pride and Prejudice.
