The MTH Theater at Crown Center has announced the addition of two key members to their full-time staff, Melissa Ford as Director of Development, and Mark Exline as Production Manager/Technical Coordinator.
Ford comes to MTH after serving as Director of Major Gifts for The Kansas City Ballet and has over twelve years fundraising experience including having served as Major Gifts Officer for the Girl Scouts of NE Kansas and NW Missouri.
“We’re tremendously excited to welcome Melissa to MTH. She will be a vital part of our strategic leadership team and we have no doubt she will help us make an even greater impact in our community,” says MTH President/CEO, Chad Gerlt.
Exline has spent the last year as a member of the Theatre Design/Technology Faculty at Florida School of the Arts. He has also worked as a Scenic Designer, Lighting Designer, Sound Designer, Technical Director, Carpenter, Stitcher, Properties Master, Illustrator, Playwright, and Teacher in theaters all over the country.
“Mark is one of the most innovate and collaborative Theater Artists I’ve ever met. His contributions will have an immediate impact on the quality of Theater we are able to achieve at MTH,” says Executive Artistic Director Tim Scott.
Ford will begin later this month, and Exline (currently serving as Set Designer for the upcoming “Oklahoma), will officially join in July.
