Carl Steiss is retiring from his position as Chairman of our Board of Directors; a position he held for over ten years. It is not hyperbole to say that without Carl’s unmatched passion, dedication and generosity The Company Theatre would not be the company it is today. Under Carl’s leadership we have grown from a fledgling start-up to one of the most influential independent theatre companies in the country.
As Carl prepares to retire from our Board of Directors, we want to honour him in a way that is fitting to the massive impact he has had on The Company Theatre and the entire theatre community. To honour Carl’s legacy, we are creating the Carl Steiss Directors Fund. The position of director for every future Company Theatre production will be sponsored by the Carl Steiss Directors Fund. This new fund will create a permanent legacy and ensure Carl’s name features prominently in all future Company Theatre productions.
The Carl Steiss Directors Fund will both celebrate a great man and ensure the long term stability of the company he was instrumental in building. As always, you will receive a tax receipt for your contribution and your support will be acknowledged in a special section of future house programs of our productions.
