Sandra Nordgren is 13th Street Rep's New Producing Artistic Director

I am excited and happy to share this particular Good News: 13th Street Repertory Company, which is one of the oldest indie/off-off-Broadway theatre companies in New York, has named Sandra Nordgren as their new Producing Artistic Director. Sandra is a great and longtime friend and supporter of NYTE, and it's terrific to see her hard work at 13th Street Rep recognized with this new appointment.

Here's the formal announcement from the company:
Sandra Nordgren has been named Producing Artistic Director of 13th Street Repertory Company in New York City.

Over the past 12 years, Sandra has been TSRC’s Executive Producer for over 70 plays, more than 150 readings and nine development workshops.

Since 1996 Sandra has recruited and mentored hundreds of students from all over the world. In the past six years alone she trained and supervised over 300 interns (14 - 23 years old) in all aspects of theatre including acting, directing, stage management, lights, sound, script evaluation, playwriting, house management, publicity, arts administration and producing.

Her adaptation of A Christmas Carol has had many productions in NYC and throughout the U.S. as well as in France, Belgium, Switzerland and Puerto Rico. It has been translated into French and German and the French/English volume can be
purchased at Amazon.fr.

In an effort to bring forth works that explore the depths of the human spirit, Sandra founded the New Works of Merit Playwriting Contest in 2003, a contest that seeks socially conscious scripts from around the world. (Learn more about the contest on nytheatre buzz.)

Sandra is a member of the Dramatist Guild, the New York Coalition of Professional Women in the Arts & Media and the League of Professional Theatre Women.

Congratulations, Sandra! Learn more about 13th Street Rep here.
