Manitoba Theatre for Young People has appointed Pablo Felices-Luna as its new artistic director.

Felices-Luna, who since 2007 was artistic director of St. Catharine Ont.’s Carousel Players, will take up his post Nov. 15. He succeeds Derek Aasland, who resigned in early May.

The father of three is an unknown quantity in Winnipeg, although he did serve as an assistant director of three MTYP productions in 2002. Board president Gloria Koop said Felices-Luna was the unanimous choice of the MTYP board of directors.

"He is perfectly placed to lead the ambitious plans that MTYP has for the coming years, and sustain and expand the extraordinary work that we do here," Koop said in a media release. "Pablo brings a wealth of knowledge and experience, particularly as it relates to theatre for young audiences."
