Debra Zoerb is leaving her post as the executive director of Folklorama to serve as general manager of the Manitoba Theatre for Young People beginning Jan. 2, 2018, according to an MTYP press release.
Before her six-year tenure at Folklorama, Zoerb worked for the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, Dance Manitoba and Manitoba Conservatory of Music and Arts.
"We did a national search and found the right candidate here at home," said Laurel Repski, chair of MTYP's board of directors.
"Debra is the ideal person to bring our new strategic plan to life. She is very excited to support (artistic director Pablo Felices-Luna's) vision of putting the best of the world’s theatre for young audiences on stage for Manitoba families."
"It’s a very special place," said Zoerb. "It's a joyful, thought-provoking gem of a theatre right here in Winnipeg. It has an important role to serve for young people to dream, imagine and grow."
MTYP is Manitoba’s only children's theatre company, presenting seven professional plays every season. The company's theatre school teaches more than 1,000 young students.
