In a media release, North Vancouver’s Presentation House Theatre announced Andrea Loewen as its new managing director.

“Andrea brings a wealth of experience, an abundance of energy and an abiding love of the theatre to our organization, and we couldn’t be happier,” says board chair, Rod Pearce. “We are confident that together with our artistic director, Kim Selody, Andrea will continue to build upon Presentation House Theatre’s long history as a significant contributor to local, national and international theatre.”

Loewen, who will take up the role in January, is currently associate manager at Vancouver’s Pacific Theatre. Vancouver Presents readers will also recognize her as a longtime contributor, specialising in dance.

“Over the years I have seen Presentation House Theatre make powerful contributions to theatre as an art form, while at the same time heavily investing in its local community,” says Loewen in the media release. “From its global partnerships to its investment in local emerging artists to the warm welcome they provide to community groups, I feel that my values of community, inclusion, and artistic excellence are a perfect fit for this organization. I feel excited and lucky to be joining the team at Presentation House Theatre.”

Housed in the historic Presentation House Arts Centre, Presentation House Theatre has been providing its audiences with a mix of professional theatre, music, and dance productions since the 1970s.
