Rebecca Ende, who served as Theater J’s Director of Marketing and Communications for three years before becoming President of the Board of Forum Theater, will return to her old company as Managing Director, Theater J announced Wednesday.
“I couldn’t be more excited to step into this new role at Theater J, a company whose work and ambitions I so admire,” Ende announced. “Being part of the extraordinary Theater J team again feels like coming home. I look forward to working with Artistic Director Ari Roth and CEO of the Washington DCJCC Carole R. Zawatsky in moving Theater J to its next phase of growth and development.”
Ende, who has an MA in Arts Administration from Columbia University and a Certificate in Budgeting and Finance from Georgetown, worked in the marketing department of Ford’s Theatre before her first stint at Theater J.
“Rebecca’s already a superstar among a rising generation of new arts administrators in this region,” Roth enthused. As “a longstanding Helen Hayes judge and board president already, she’s got experience way beyond her years…Now she’s back to help us achieve a new level of excellence. Everyone on staff is thrilled to have Rebecca back with us!”
