WESTON - The Weston Playhouse Theatre Company, Vermont's oldest professional theatre, has announced the appointment of Bridget Sullivan as the company's Operations Manager. She will be assuming year-round responsibility for key areas of the theatre company's activities including production supervision, facilities management, travel and housing for artists and seasonal staff, and volunteers.

Bridget Sullivan came to Weston in 2009 as the company's first year-round production manager. Previously she worked as assistant production manager for the North Shore Music Theatre in Beverly, Mass.

"Bridget has demonstrated remarkable skill at creating efficiencies within the company while strengthening critical relationships with our community," says WPTC's Managing Director, Stuart Duke. "Her new title and responsibilities will afford us greater ability to maintain consistency and competency in those key areas both during and between our summer producing seasons."

Duke also noted that Sullivan would play a significant role in attracting and supporting artists for Weston's expanded goal of providing a rural retreat for the development of new theatrical work.

Started in 1937 and incorporated as a registered non-profit in 1989, Weston presents a broad spectrum of theatrical work during its primary summer producing season and is increasingly known for its dedication to the development of new plays and musicals and support for emerging voices in the American Theatre. The theatre is a member of the Theatre Communications Group, the National Alliance for Musical Theatre and is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.
