Announcing our New Artistic Director
I am beyond happy and excited...and relieved frankly, to report that long time company member Peter Brown has accepted my offer to become the new Artistic Director of Fenix Theatre Co. Many of you know Peter as an actor/director in the greater Portland area, including numerous summers with Fenix. He holds a BA in Drama from Dartmouth College and is an affiliate artist at Portland Stage and former Associate Artistic Director of Mad Horse Theater Company. Peter is an amazing director/actor/all around theatre person and more important, a great human being.
I am so thankful for everything you all have generously given me over eleven summers as Artistic Director; love, support, encouragement, criticism...all have done so much to enrich this theatre company and myself as an artist and a person. Thank you for the opportunity.
I'm moving on to finally spend some Maine summers with my family not worrying about the million things involved in producing outdoor theatre. I will always be proud of the irreverent, off-kilter joy and madness that filled Fenix summers and my life for these years, and I look forward to watching Peter and team keep that ethos alive and well in Deering Oaks for the next eleven or however many more to come. I'll see you there!
Rob Cameron, Founding Artistic Director
