The Modern Theater, a professional theater company with venues in both Spokane and Coeur d’Alene, has announced new leadership.
Teko Dumoulin has been named the new artistic director, while Troy Nickerson has been named associate artistic director. They replace executive artistic director George Green, who left to become CEO of the Playhouse San Antonio in Texas, his hometown. The Modern Theater earlier this month named Kristin Kilmer as the new managing director.
Dumoulin is a Spokane native who has worked professionally in Pullman, Seattle and the San Francisco area. He joined the staff of Interplayers in 2013-14, before its merger with the Lake City Playhouse, as technical director. Since then, he’s been a set designer, actor, stage manager, carpenter and light/sound board operator, according to an announcement on the Modern’s website. He also teaches scenic design for Spokane Falls Community College.
Nickerson has been in theater in Spokane for 25 years as an actor, director and choreographer, working with “every theater in the area and almost every actor or technician,” the announcement said. Most recently, he choreographed “Guys and Dolls,” now running at Spokane Civic Theatre.
The Modern is running “Anything Goes” through Sunday in Coeur d’Alene, and opens “Man of La Mancha” in Spokane on July 8. For more information, visit themoderntheater.org.
