It is with mixed feelings that the Port Stanley Festival Theatre announces that
long-time Theatre Manager, Melissa Kempf, has accepted a position in Marketing and
Development at the River Run Centre in Guelph.
Ms. Kempf began her PSFT career in 2010 when she assumed the position of Box Office
Manager and subsequently transitioned into the Theatre Manager role, a position
she has held for the past six years. Ms. Kempf's last day at PSFT will be July 7th
as she assists in the upcoming transition process. The search for a new Theatre
Manager will begin in the next few days.
"As a theatre that prides itself in aiding in the development of theatre professionals,
we are thrilled with the new opportunity that has presented itself to a valued member
of the PSFT family. That being said, Melissa will be keenly missed by staff, Board,
community partners, and patrons alike. We wish her all the best as she moves forward
with her career." … Artistic Director, Simon Joynes
