Firehouse Theatre Project's Founding Artistic Director Carol Piersol Resigns

The Firehouse Theatre Project (FTP) and Board of Directors President Kay Holmes are very sad to announce that Ms. Carol Piersol has resigned her position as Founding Artistic Director at FTP.

In an effort to ensure continuity of the artistic vision Ms. Piersol brought to the Firehouse, the Board has been considering succession plans to ensure artistic talent for our long term future. It was the Board's intention that Ms. Piersol transition from Artistic Director to Artistic Director Emeritus in June 2013 and continue to contribute her talents through contractual production, directing, and teaching. Ms. Piersol has instead chosen to resign effective immediately.

We sincerely appreciate all that Carol has done to develop the Richmond theatrical community and The Firehouse Theatre Project. Ms. Piersol was a founding member in 1993 and has served in many roles over the following nineteen years to build FTP to the thriving organization it is today and will be for the future. We wish Carol continued success in her future endeavors.
