CORNER BROOK — As the Off-Broadway Players enters its 10th year on the Corner Brook arts scene, Jordan Stringer has been elected as the group’s new president.
“It’s a real honour to be elected,” said Stringer. “Off-Broadway is one of the most successful and talented community theatre troupes in Newfoundland and Labrador, and I feel very proud and privileged to take over the reigns of the group and hopefully continue brining quality productions to Corner Brook audiences.”
The remaining members of the Off-Broadway Players executive includes, Danny Maloney, vice-president; Joanne Martin, secretary and Liz Randell, treasurer. Amy Andrews, Anne Gregory, Carolyn Parsons, Rebecca Pike and Sandy Wiseman will serve as directors. Stephen Perchard moves into the past-president role, after stepping down from the seat that he held for the last four years.
“We have a really strong board and a really strong membership,” Stringer said. “I’ll certainly be relying on a lot of the talent in our group as I adjust to the responsibilities of being president.”
The Off-Broadway Players are bringing the musical “The Wizard of Oz” to the Corner Brook Arts and Culture Centre Oct. 26-27. “The Wizard of Oz” is directed by Jim Parsons with musical direction by Gary Graham and choreography by Candice Pike.
