Day Returns to Production Manager Post

Posted: Thursday, June 28, 2018, 4:47am

Michael Day is ready for an encore.

Day will serve as production manager for Curtain Players during the 2018-2019 season. It is a return engagement for Day who held the post for several seasons nearly 10 years ago.

Day is a former theatre board member (2009-2012, 2014), having served as treasurer. He directed Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? at the Harlem Road playhouse and stage managed Alice: A Variation on Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland at the Westerville amphitheater in 2017. His other Curtain credits include directing Dial M for Murder, Burn This, and Arsenic and Old Lace, designing the set for Proof, and acting in The Passion of Dracula.

He has been the longtime webmaster for the theatre’s website, and will continue those responsibilities.

Day in 2010 received the community theatre’s highest honor, the Richard D. Near Award.

The theatre’s board of directors at its June 26 meeting unanimously affirmed Day’s appointment.

Day will oversee guidance and coordination of all elements of staging Curtain Players shows, working with directors to oversee production logistics, to build production teams, and to maintain consistency in processes and protocols from casting to closing performances. An experienced producer and stage manager himself, Day will also help cultivate and steward volunteers for those and other technical positions.
