News (Lethbridge): Jeremy Mason to step down as Artistic Director of New West Theatre

Jeremy Mason

Jeremy Mason

New West Theatre announces today that Jeremy Mason will step down as Artistic Director at the end of the 2014-15 season. Jeremy has been part of the organization’s administrative team for the past six years and will end his term as Artistic Director in the spring of 2015. A search for a new Artistic Director will begin immediately.

“New West Theatre has been incredibly fortunate to have Jeremy part of our administrative team these past six years. His integrity, impressive foresight as an administrator, and outstanding artistic vision have successfully guided our company through uncertain times, and laid a solid foundation for growth in the coming years. We are thankful for the time Jeremy has dedicated to New West Theatre and wish him all the best with his professional endeavours” says Doug MacArthur, President of the Board of Directors. “Change in leadership is not unfamiliar to New West Theatre. Our success has never been based on the work of one individual, but instead on the collective work of an amazing group of artists, technicians, administrators and volunteers. I anticipate a smooth transition to a new Artistic Director later this spring.”

Jeremy states “New West Theatre’s 25th season has been one of its most successful and this is the perfect time to start looking ahead to the next 25 years. I’m extraordinarily proud of what this theatre has been able to accomplish, and it’s thanks to the hard work of the artists and technicians and of course the dedication of Southern Albertan audiences. New West Theatre has been an instrumental part of my life, but after six seasons it’s time to pass the torch on to someone who will bring fresh energy and ideas to the table. I’m excited to continue my work as a freelance artist.”

Jeremy and General Manager, Jeff Newman, are currently planning the 2015-16 season, which will be launched in early spring. The season will continue with high-energy productions that audiences have come to love over the company’s history.

Board president, Doug MacArthur, will be heading the hiring committee, which will be comprised of New West Theatre board members and staff. The position will be posted immediately and the committee expects to have a new Artistic Director in place for the start of the 2015-16 season.
