BALTIMORE: Single Carrot Theatre has named Emily Cory to be its new executive director, succeeding interim managing director Alix Fenhagen, beginning May 15. Cory will lead the organization alongside artistic director Genevieve de Mahy, while Fenhagen will continue on as a member of Single Carrot’s ensemble and board.
“I am delighted to have Emily Cory join Single Carrot Theatre,” said de Mahy in a statement. “Her passion for an experience in equity and accessibility in the arts and arts education will propel our vision of Single Carrot’s future forward.”
