STT Announces Kelsey Head as New Co-Artistic Director

Second Thought Theatre announced today that Kelsey Head will be the company's new Co-Artistic Director. Head, who joins current Co-Artistic Director Steven Walters, will begin work with STT immediately. This announcement comes as the company is preparing to announce its 2013 season.

"I am excited that Kelsey Head is taking on a more permanent and influential role with Second Thought Theatre," said Walters. "Her fresh perspective, ability to identify opportunities for growth and long-term vision for the company make her ideal for the Co-Artistic Director position and I am looking forward to working with her to help push Second Thought Theatre into the next chapter of our history."

Head began working with STT during the 2011-2012 season. She served as assistant director for Pluck the Day and producer for The Bomb-itty of Errors. Head replaces Chris LaBove, who joined STT in 2010 and will continue to serve on the company's Board of Directors. Under the leadership of Walters and LaBove, Second Thought Theatre made the successful move from the Studio Theatre in the Addison Theatre and Conference Center to Bryant Hall on the Kalita Humphreys Campus. The pair also worked to re-focus and revitalize the STT Board.

David Guedry, former Board President of WaterTower Theatre, serves as president of STT's Board of Directors. Additional Board of Directors members are secretary Ben Guthrie, Emily Guthrie, Erik Archilla, Lance Currie, Lindsay Graham, Chris LaBove, Robert McCollum, Paige Southern, Steven Walters and advisory member Karol Omlor.

"I believe Second Thought Theatre provides a unique perspective on theatre in North Texas – from the selection of plays, to the quality of the production, to the artist and patron experience," said Head. "I look forward to contributing to such a strong company."
