The Manitoba Theatre for Young People has appointed Pablo Felices-Luna as its artistic director.
Felices-Luna, who most recently held the same position with St. Catharines’ Carousel Players, will assume the role on November 15.
Felices-Luna is familiar to MTYP, having served as an assistant director of three MTYP shows in 2002: The Odyssey; The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, and Mirror Game.
“We are delighted to welcome Pablo to the team,” said Gloria Koop, president of MTYP’s board of directors. “He is perfectly placed to lead the ambitious plans that MTYP has for the coming years, and sustain and expand the extraordinary work that we do here.”
Max Reimer, who currently serves as MTYP’s interim artistic director, will remain on staff as the leadership transition occurs over the coming weeks.
