The manager of a university theater in Oklahoma has been named to fill the same job at the $10-million, 758-seat Lancaster Performing Arts Center that opened last November.
Bruce Spain, 33, is slated to start the $44,808-a-year Lancaster job June 10.
Spain has managed the 1,065-seat theater at Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Okla., and has nine years of technical and theater management experience, city officials said.
He was selected from about 70 applicants for the job.
Spain, also a graduate of Northeastern State University, will replace Susan Davis, who managed Lancaster's theater and oversaw its development as the city's cultural arts superintendent.
