Gloucester Stage Board of Directors President Elizabeth Neumeier has announced that as of September 30, 2018, Jeff Zinn will depart as Managing Director of Gloucester Stage Company.

A longtime New England theater professional, Jeff Zinn has served as Managing Director at Gloucester Stage since October 1, 2015. Zinn reflects on his tenure in Gloucester, "The past three years have been incredibly rewarding, both personally and professionally. GSC is blessed with a vibrant ecosystem of artists, technicians, board, staff, and audiences, and I am so grateful for their generosity. I look forward to seeing where the company goes from here and, perhaps, occasionally jumping back in as a freelancer.' While at Gloucester Stage, Zinn also directed the critically acclaimed productions of Peter Sinn Nachtrieb's The Totalitarians and the world premiere of Jim Frangione's Flight of the Monarch. "I can't say enough good things about my collaboration with Jeff over these last three years!

'He took a significant leadership role in adapting and implementing our new workplace harassment protocols based on the Chicago Theater Standards and has, in every instance, been a true colleague and friend. I will miss our interactions together, but hope he will return as a director or actor in future seasons."
