Join us for wine, beer and light bites, as well as a chance to see friends and colleagues, and get to know Leigh Goldenberg, Theatre Philadelphia's new Executive Director.
Theatre Philadelphia's Board is thrilled to work with Leigh Goldenberg, who will spearhead our efforts to grow audience for theatre in Philadelphia. Leigh's work will include building marketing partnerships for the theatre community, and will be informed by input from the city's theatre companies as we chart new ways to promote theatre. The annual Barrymore Awards program continues, administered by Theatre Philadelphia Administrative Director Joel Sumner. Leigh and Joel will continue to implement Theatre Philadephia's digital marketing campaign currently driving 60,000 patrons per year to www.theatrephiladelphia.org, where patrons can find a show and buy tickets.
Prior to joining Theatre Philadelphia, Goldenberg served as Director of Marketing for Wash Cycle Laundry, a social enterprise focusing on sustainability and job creation with operations in Philadelphia and Washington D.C. In the arts, she worked at Arden Theatre Company and Lantern Theater Company in marketing, communications, and audience engagement, as well as providing consulting services to a wide-ranging group of mission-driven organizations. On a volunteer basis, Goldenberg serves on the board of the South Philly Food Co-op, chairs the Friends of Kirkbride Elementary School, and is in the 2017 Class of Leadership Philadelphia’s Connectors and Keepers.
“Essentially being the chief marketer for Philadelphia theatre is a dream job for me,” says Goldenberg, who grew up attending theatre in the Philadelphia area. “I’m honored to work alongside the dedicated board and volunteers to forge stronger connections between our art and audiences, and to have theatre play a pivotal role in the lives of Philadelphians.”
Theatre Philadelphia extends special thanks to June and Steve Wolfson.
