After six years at the helm leading the Loft Theatre as Artistic Director, a period of consistently excellent achievement on its stage, Tim Willis is stepping down as leader to concentrate on directing shows and acting whenever an exciting role comes his way. The job is very demanding of one`s time and energy and six years is a sensible point at which to step back and take stock, commented Tim. He has found the job very rewarding and he moves on with the thanks and good wishes of the Trustees.
On 4th March the Board of Trustees appointed Sue Moore to take the reins as Artistic Director of the Theatre. Sue has been Associate Artistic Director since last summer, working closely with Tim, and the take over should be seamless.
Chairman, William Wilkinson expressed his great pleasure that Sue will be leading the Company into the future. He remarked upon her extensive knowledge of theatre; she knows what is exciting out there in the wide world that Leamington audiences deserve to see performed to the highest standards that the Loft is capable of rising to. He added that she will build on the substantial reputation the theatre enjoys and she has the great advantage of knowing the Loft, its people, its audiences and is identified with the Theatre completely from many years of active participation in its output.. The Loft is fortunate in securing her commitment, concluded Wilkinson.
