Manager leaves Seattle Children’s Theatre
Seattle Childrens Theatre has announced that Mary Ann Ehlshlager is no longer with the company.
Ms. Ehlshlager, a former staffer at the Delaware Theatre Company, was managing director of SCT for the past two and a half years. No reason was given for her departure.
In a prepared statement on behalf of the theater, board president Bob Evans thanked Ehlshlager for her “strategic and fiscal leadership,” and said senior administrators at SCT will run the theater “until an interim managing director is identified.”
