Seattle Musical Theatre announces Interim Executive Director

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

The Board of Directors of Seattle Musical Theatre is pleased to announce the appointment of Mark Chenovick as Seattle Musical Theatre's Interim Executive Director. Chenovick, who is currently serving as Executive Artistic Director of SecondStory Repertory, will begin in his new role at SMT beginning August 20, 2013.

“I have no intentions of leaving SSR, but it is my personal mission to provide as many opportunities for theater practitioners as possible,” says Chenovick. “I am very excited by the opportunity to assist SMT by implementing the same sound business practices that brought SSR back from the brink of bankruptcy in 2010.”

SMT’s mission is to engage and educate musical theater patrons and artists of all ages with productions of high artistic value as part of a viable component of the Puget Sound region’s cultural environment.

Chenovick plans to focus on charting a new course for the organization. This will be a team effort among the full-time staff, contract workers, and the artistic community that participates in SMT’s productions throughout the season. He hopes to create an active involvement with the theater community of the Puget Sound.

“We’re very excited to have someone as accomplished and respected within the community as Mark Chenovick to be coming on board with SMT,” says Mark Nihart, President of the Board of Directors of SMT. “Looking forward to our 36th season, Metamorphosis, we are enthusiastic about the transformation that Mark will bring to the organization.”

A native of Helena, Montana, Chenovick is currently serving as Executive Artistic Director of SecondStory Repertory in Redmond. Prior to that, he was President/Treasurer of Redwood Theatre as well as an active member of the Seattle based Showtunes Theatre Company.
