After ten years as the Guthrie Theater’s face to the media, Melodie Bahan has decided to move on.
In an e-mail sent out this morning, the longtime Director of Communications said “The decision was not an easy one for me, but I’m at a point in my life where I’m ready for a change and some new challenges. The time is right.”
Bahan has seen the Guthrie through its move from the Walker Art Center grounds to the Minneapolis riverfront, and since its relocation, has managed the publicity for full seasons on three different stages to both local and national media.
Bahan said she plans to take time off before transitioning to a new job.
