An invitation from Incoming Artistic Director TIMOTHY DOUGLAS

Greetings ALL ... The Artistic Associates and I are hard at work creating an invigorating bill of plays and events for Remy Bumppo's 2011/2012 Season!

My inaugural season with the company will be a full demonstration of the excellence and integrity you've come to know as worthy of the moniker of ThinkTheatre - along with some augmentation designed to further engage your minds and souls, and which will serve as a meaningful reflection of the transition in leadership.

While I cannot yet reveal the play selections at this time - as we're still very much 'in process' - I wanted to take this opportunity to widen the conversation that surrounds the curiosity and excitement about what happens after the much beloved Founding Artistic Director, James Bohnen, makes his departure. I am deeply aware of just how challenging change of any kind can be, and more specifically of just how dramatic a change can seem when 'the face' that has been associated with an artistic institution for all its existence, moves on and is replaced by another.

I've already had many impassioned discussions surrounding the question of just 'where is Remy Bumppo heading under its new leadership?', and invite you to post your questions and comments here.

And while I acknowledge - for a fair amount of this transition process - we're making it up as we go along, I will respond as candidly as I can.

With the blessings of the season and my best regards ... TIMOTHY DOUGLAS
