General Manager Andrea Surich to leave Watermark
It is with both great appreciation and regret that Watermark Theatre announces the departure of General Manager Andrea Surich. Andrea will be stepping down from her position at Watermark to assume the role of General Manager of Theatre at The Charlottetown Festival at Confederation Centre of the Arts. Effective immediately, Andrea will be sharing her time between the two organizations for the next few months, facilitating a smooth transition for both.
Andrea joined Artistic Director Robert Tsonos in the leadership of Watermark Theatre in 2015. Since then, the company has experienced exponential growth at the box office, launched a hugely successful Mentorship Program, and placed the theatre on solid footing for years to come, while delivering theatre productions every summer to great critical and audience acclaim.
“Andrea has had an incredible impact on our company and is a major reason why the theatre is in such great shape, both artistically and financially”, explains Robert, “her hard work, dedication, and infectious enthusiasm has immeasurably shaped this theatre. We are going to miss her immensely but also wish her well in her new position”.
Watermark Theatre Board Chair Rodney Payne added, “It would be difficult to overstate how important Andrea has been to the Watermark Theatre. Her engagement and commitment over the past five years is greatly appreciated and she will be sorely missed.”
Watermark Theatre’s Board of Directors, artists, staff, and volunteers extend their deepest gratitude to Andrea for her leadership and service to the company and wish her all the best as she embarks on a new stage of her career.
