Thalian Association hires new artistic director

Monday, April 21st, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The Thalian Association has hired a new, full-time artistic director.

David Loudermilk will oversee productions for the Thalian Associations main stage and children’s theater. The decision to combine the two previously part-time jobs had caused a great deal of drama among members of the theater groups.

“David brings a wealth of experience in acting, directing and teaching to Thalian Association,” Thalian Association Board of Directors chair Danny Brock said in a statement. “His leadership will take Thalian Association to the next level and will help us expand our theatrical and educational offerings in both scope and quality.”

Loudermilk, whose performance and directing credits include Paramount Parks, Holland America Cruise Line and the Broadway Workshop, moved to Wilmington in 2008. Since then he has director performances for the association’s main stage and children’s theater. He currently works as Drama Director for Cape Fear Academy; a job he will leave June 1.

“I am honored to join Thalian Association and look forward to building on its strong foundation as North Carolina’s oldest community theater,” Loudermilk said in a statement. “This position is an ideal match for my skills and experience and I am eager to expand the reach and impact of Thalian Association in the local arts community.”

Thalian Association’s current Artistic Director Tom Briggs will stay on through May 26 to oversee the production of “Wonderful Town.” TACT part-time Artistic Director Jason Aycock will also stay on to oversee the Children’s Theater programs and the season finale “TACT Radio, Hits through the Ages” in June.
