I’m Shane D. Hudson, one of the bloggers that Barry mentioned last week. I’m excited to get started, and I thought I’d begin by introducing myself and talk a little about the perspective I will bring to this blog.
I am currently the associate director of Development for PlayMakers Repertory Company at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. I recently relocated to my home state after living in Boston for 14 years. I moved to Boston to study theatre at Emerson College where received a BFA in Performing Arts Management.
In Boston, I served as general manager and regional marketing director for Blue Man Group and concurrently as theater manager for the historic Charles Playhouse. I was also very involved with the non-profit theatre community in Boston, serving as executive director of StageSource, the Alliance of Theater Artists and Producers. I then spent almost a decade on the StageSource Board of Directors.
