Back to square 1.

The Theatre Board of The Burlington Performing Arts Centre has announced the appointment of Tammy Fox as the incoming Executive Director.

Ms Fox will assume her new role effective July 4, 2017, succeeding Interim Executive Director Brian McCurdy.

McCurdy has served as Executive Director where he did a superb job. He retired and was brought back as interim. One suspects McCurdy would like to make a retirement complete. Hopefully this time it will work.

Tammy Fox appointed the new Executive Director of the Performing Arts Centre.

Ilene Elkaim said the Theatre Board received great interest from across the country for the position. “ We have chosen an individual whose experience and qualifications are best suited to lead us into next Season and beyond.”

Tammy joins The Centre from an accomplished career in the professional arts presentation and artist representation industries. Tammy held the position of General Manager of Peterborough’s not-for-profit Showplace Performance Centre.

She continued her passion for connecting artists and audiences by starting her own artist representation company, Fox Entertainment Agency. Renowned in the performing arts industry, Tammy has facilitated programming seasons for Mirvish Productions, The Stratford Festival, the National Arts Centre and the Lincoln Centre in NYC.

Her contributions have earned her the inaugural “Agent of the Year” award from Ontario Presents as well as numerous other accolades from her peers and the industry alike. She is thrilled to be transitioning back to performing arts management where she feels at home fostering relationships between artists and audiences.

Brian McCurdy’s tremendous contribution is complete. Hopefully he will stay on long enough to give Ms Fox a detailed look at the really solid work he has done on two occasions. The city owes him much.

The upcoming 2017-2018 Presenting Season will be shown to subscribers on May 17th, – they get first crack at the tickets. Sale of tickets to the general public starts May 24.
