As we launch into our 49th season, we’re doing so with a new Producing Director, Justin Ivie. He succeeds longtime SLAC employee Janice Jenson, who recently accepted a new post at the Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington, D.C.

How do you “introduce” Justin Ivie? The answer is, you don’t need to, because his three-decades-long career (both off-stage and on) in the Utah theatre community is well-known. Whether it's his 70+ professional stage credits, which include a staggering eleven appearances in SATURDAY’S VOYEUR, his stage management work (most recently last season’s THE WOLVES and SILENT DANCER) or his directorial work (THE CAKE), Ivie is the very definition of a consummate theatre professional.

"I'm overjoyed to be taking on this new and exciting role for the best little theater company in the world!” said Ivie. “SLAC is a home to me, and I look forward to fostering that home for many other artists so that they can flourish and bring their best work to our audiences. Thanks to the entire SLAC community for welcoming me and giving me this space to create and to succeed."
