York Theatre Company Welcomes Alana Graber and Gerry McIntyre to Administrative Team

The York Theatre Company has announced two additions to its organization: Gerry McIntyre, York's new Associate Artistic Director, and Alana Graber, who is the company's new Director of Development. They join James Morgan, Producing Artistic Director, Evans Haile, Executive Director, and Aaron Simms, General Manager, on the York's administrative team.

James Morgan said, "Finding two such perfect additions to our superb staff is exciting. The personalities and outlook have to mesh, and they do. Alana Graber came to us through an extensive search over the summer headed by Evans, and I have known Gerry McIntyre for over thirty years; he has done many projects at The York wearing many creative hats. We welcome them both."
