Rep Stage, the professional company producing from Howard Community College, has apparently lost the services of Artistic Director Michael Stebbins, DC Theatre Scene learned tonight.
The Community College announced on its hccjobs.org website that it is seeking “a Producing Artistic Director, who will be responsible for the development and implementation of the artistic policy of the theatre, the selection of seasonal programs and the administration of the artistic activities of the theatre.” Candidates must have a Master’s degree in a theater-related subject and three to five years experience as a Producing Artistic Director of a non-profit professional theater or in a related field.
In a Facebook entry, Stebbins said “[i]t has been an honor to have had this job since November 2005, but the time has come for me to continue on this fantastic journey called life.” Stebbins called the Rep Stage job “[a] great opportunity for the right person!”
Stebbins, who came to Rep Stage in 2005, is a 1992 graduate of the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee with a MFA in theater history. He originally comes from North Tonawanda, New York.
The announcement came as Rep Stage rehearses for its final play of the season, the comedy Boeing Boeing by Marc Camoletti which opens April 17, 2013.
