New Hampshire Theatre Awards (NHTA) Board of Directors have elected two interim officers into their officially assigned positions. Matthew Gregg, NHTA’s Co-Founder, moves from Interim President to President, and Interim Executive Director, Bob Frasca, will now serve as Executive Director. Together, the two gentlemen will perpetuate the NHTA’s mission to support professional and community theatres all over the state.
States new President, Gregg, "I am extremely excited to serve in this role. In 2001, Rick Broussard and I created the Awards for the task of preservation and growth of the performing arts community in New Hampshire, and I am excited to see where leadership has taken it throughout the years. In order for us to fully realize our mission, it is my hope that we generate new methods and ideas outside of our Awards event to help our craft grow and thrive."
Adds Executive Director Frasca, “I’m excited and pleased that the Board decided to remove Interim from the title as we begin to ramp up preparations for our next Awards show. We’re proud of the show we produced last season and look forward to raising the bar this season. I’d like to thank my fellow Operations Committee members for their efforts on behalf of the NHTA, as well as for their support.”
In addition to Gregg and Frasca, the NHTA Board is comprised of Katie Collins as Secretary, and Executive Editor of New Hampshire Magazine, Rick Broussard, serves as Treasurer. Additionally, John Campanello, Gina Carballo, Morgan Murphy and Scott Brodsky serve in myriad ad hoc capacities. Currently, the position of Vice-President is open, and a search committee is screening candidates to fulfill it.
States Frasca, “We are nearing our twelfth Award season, and this year we plan to grow our organization even further. Earlier this year, for our eleventh season, we moved to a new venue, The Stockbridge Theater in Derry, NH. This remains the site for our annual Award presentation production. The Stockbridge is one of the most beautiful facilities in our state, and we’re extremely excited about how this venue enhances the entire Awards experience for every one of NHTA’s member organizations.”
