Nouveau 47 Theatre, the group that performs in Margo Jones' historic theater space in Fair Park, has just announced its third season, which includes new plays by Austin writer Sarah Saltwick and local writer/directors Matthew Tomlanovich and Tom Parr IV.
There's also some changes in leadership. Co-founder Parr will remain artistic director, and he's joined by Michael Federico as managing director; Tomlanovich as director of artist development; Shawn Magill as director of outreach; Jim Kuenzer as director of marketing; and Clay Wheeler as literary manager. (Magill and Federico, along with Seth Magill, are the authors of a new musical that premieres this weekend at the space, On the Eve.)
And here's more from the news release:
In the coming year we will announcing our expanding ensemble, more workshops, more music events and more late night comedy including our New Works/New Voices Festival, slated for November 2013.
