The Quincy Community Theatre Board of Directors announced a new executive director on Thursday.
Theater officials stated that Reagan Costigan would be the new and first, full-time executive director.
“Running a theatre company is a fascinating and complex job,” said Board President Scott Walden. “It requires a person to understand the big picture and work with people of all kinds. Reagan has extensive experience in marketing, sales and management, and is excited to put it to great use in theatre operations, and she has the enthusiasm to get the job done.”
“I am so honored to be a part of Quincy Community Theatre,” Costigan said. “I love that QCT’s mission is not only to produce quality entertainment but to also educate the community and the younger generations. The performing arts is used to communicate our creativity and to come together as a community. The theatre has a warm and engaging sense of welcome. I am grateful for the opportunity to offer strategic leadership and continue the rich tradition of QCT into the future. I am looking forward to all the opportunities there are to make Quincy Community Theatre the “place to go” for date nights as well as a great place to take the whole family. I’m looking at the theatre from a whole new perspective.”
Officials reported that Costigan was raised in the Quincy area and previously worked in sales and marketing, most recently as an account executive with Townsquare Media. She is a graduate of Quincy University with a degree in Business. She and her husband, Chris, have two daughters and reside in Quincy. She is a volunteer with the Quincy Hospitality House.
Officials stated that Costigan will be working closely with Artistic Director Brandon Thomsen and Head of Education Kelsey Celek as the 2018 Discover Season wraps up. She is excited to work with the wonderful staff and to meet all those that support the theatre as members, donors, ticket holders, students, cast, and volunteers.
