Round House Theatre's Board of Trustees announced today that it has named Ryan Rilette as its new Producing Artistic Director. Currently the Producing Director at Marin Theatre Company, Rilette will assume his full-time duties at Round House on August 1, 2012.

Rilette succeeds Blake Robison, who leaves at the end of June after having led Round House for seven years to become Artistic Director at Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park. "I am thrilled with Ryan's appointment," Robison said. "He brings tremendous artistic and managerial experience to the table. As Round House looks to the future, I can't think of a better person for the job. Congratulations to everyone on this important occasion!"

Rilette has 13 years of arts management experience, serving as Producing Artistic Director and Producing Director at award-winning theaters in New York, New Orleans, and the San Francisco Bay Area. He is also a well-respected director and producer of new plays who currently serves as President of the National New Play Network.

"Blake's announcement last fall gave the board the critical time it needed to reflect on what we do well, what we can do better, and where we can grow," said Sally J. Patterson, President of Round House Theatre's Board of Trustees. "We are proud to be in Montgomery County, to provide innovative and challenging theatre, and to continue our commitment to artistic engagement for all ages. Ryan embodies our greatest hopes for all our aspirations."

"It's a great honor to follow in the footsteps of Blake Robison and Jerry Whiddon," Rilette said. "I've long been a fan of both Round House and the DC theater community, and look forward to working with the board and staff to guide Round House through the next phase of its illustrious history."
