Tim Jennings, the head of Seattle Children’s Theatre, will take over the post in full in February, joining Artistic Director Peter Brosius at the helm of the Tony Award winning theater in Minneapolis.
Previous to his work at STC, Jennings managed the Roseneath Theatre Company in Toronto. Roseneath produces and tours original dramatic work for young people and, under Jennings’ direction, grew more than 500 percent, becoming Ontario’s largest touring theatre company. Jennings also earned Roseneath six Dora Awards, Toronto’s equivalent to a Tony Award.
“Tim has made it his life’s work to bring extraordinary theatre to young people,” says Brosius. “His work in Canada was marked by national and international success as well as numerous honors for the creation of new work. He has been a true leader – building financial stability, deepening ties in the communities he serves and enthusiastically supporting the artistic work. I am delighted to have him as my new partner, here at CTC.”
Jennings also serves on the Board of Directors for the Theatre Communications Group, which is currently led by former CTC Managing Director Teresa Eyring.
