The Regent will be presenting two tribute shows this summer: Elvis: The Moments Concert and Beatlemania Revisited. Organizers are looking for anything related to Elvis and The Beatles that can be borrowed to decorate the two box office windows at The Regent: old Albums, CDs, posters, photos, and any memorabilia that would look good in the window.
Call Lynne 613-476-8416, ext. 26 or visit the box office if you have something or email email@example.com.
Bob Schroen, the Regent Theatre’s long-time volunteer in charge of information technology and movie coordination, has agreed to take on responsibilities as the theatre’s General Manager of Operations.
Some months ago, the Regent board decided a full-time management position needed to be created to free board members from hands-on, day-to-day operations and allow them to focus on high level governance of the theatre and on nurturing external relationships with community groups, other organizations involved in the entertainment business and with funding agencies.
Initially, the board considered advertising for an executive director to take on responsibility for both operations and external relationships. Schroen, a member of the board, stepped forward with a proposal to take on the oversight of all operations functions while continuing to look after the movies and IT requirements. Given his dedication and broad-based knowledge, the board saw his suggestion as an opportunity to meet all of the theatre’s needs, without a months-long search for, and training of, an executive director. They began negotiations on the requirements and remuneration and he will begin his new duties May 6th.
He is to provide overall direction to employees and contract staff and volunteers involved in the day-to-day operation of the theatre. He’ll oversee the delivery of the Regent’s programs in consultation with various personnel and volunteers and will be responsible for the organization’s financial planning. He will be accountable to the board of directors through the chair and will rejoin the board as a non-voting, ex-officio member.
