AMERICAN THEATRE -- “This is a hugely important moment for the organization,” said board president Emily Rosenthal in a statement. “Bethany brings a host of unique experiences to the position. As a local candidate, she is knowledgeable about Bay Area theatre, and in particular brings significant fundraising skills. Most importantly, Bethany’s appreciation for Crowded Fire’s strengths and her ability to analyze and envision areas for growth are in line with our recently adopted strategic plan. We couldn’t be happier to have Bethany join our organization.”
