This article details the conversation I had the pleasure of conducting with John Faas, entering Executive Director of Richmond Civic Theater, and Kathy Clopper, President of the Board of Richmond Civic Theater. John’s duties officially begin May first, but nevertheless he’s done his research and has plenty of fresh ideas and unique experience to bring to the table. Kathy began her involvement with Richmond Civic Theater in 1988 by volunteering. “I got to put button holes in costumes and a lady showed me how to put eyeliner on men, and I’ve never stopped and never looked back since then,” says Clopper. She’s graced the theater with her writing, design, and directing skills. While she will be stepping down as president in July, she is hoping to direct a show next season saying, “my directing chops are antsy to get back to work.”
