Rainbow Stage has a new executive director — its first one ever, in fact.
Julie Eccles, the outdoor theatre’s general manager since 2010, will assume the role immediately, according to a release.
The position was created as part of the restructuring process following the death of Ken Peter, Rainbow’s executive producer for nearly two decades.
The organization has also just hired its first artistic director. Ray Hogg, a Toronto musical theatre director, teacher and performer has taken on the task of guiding Canada’s longest-running outdoor theatre into its 59th year and beyond.
