Festival Antigonish / Theatre Antigonish Announce Departure of Managing Director Reema Fuller

Reema Fuller, who was at the helm for 6+ years, is leaving for a new national opportunity. A search for new candidates will commence shortly.

Antigonish, NS (November 7, 2022): With a mix of sadness for us and excitement for her, we are announcing today that our Managing Director Reema Fuller will be leaving our team at the end of the year to pursue a new opportunity with a national arts advocacy organization. Reema has been with us since 2016 and has made a tremendous impact on the theatre during her time here.

She has been instrumental in spearheading positive change and growth for the theatre as a compassionate, forward-thinking leader. Her accomplishments include expanding community partnerships and audience outreach, welcoming new and diverse audiences, growing sponsorships and fundraising, steering the organization through the COVID crisis, and strengthening relationships with stakeholders and all levels of government. Reema did this and more, while also taking time to warmly welcome audiences and artists, deliver Gatorade and popsicles to actors during a heatwave, and appear in our “Hector the Spectre Steals the Show” podcast!

Artistic Director Andrea Boyd, who began her tenure at the same time, says, “Reema and I very quickly realized that we loved working together, and that our complementary skills would serve the organization and the community very well. Reema is a one-of-a-kind gem, and we will truly miss her! We wish her the very best in her new position and look forward to our continued friendship.”

While we will miss Reema on the team, we are delighted that she will be applying her skills and experience on a larger scale to help build capacity in the arts sector across Canada. We are most thrilled that she will be staying right here in the community and remain connected with Festival Antigonish and Theatre Antigonish as a frequent patron.
