LCT Appoints Grant Golson as Executive Director

La Crosse, WI – 07/31/17 – La Crosse Community Theatre’s Board of Directors has appointed Grant Golson as the new Executive Director. This appointment is the conclusion of a search process that began in April following the resignation of LCT’s previous Executive Director, David Kilpatrick.

Golson brings years of fundraising experience, most recently with the ALS Association, and years of experience as a performer and arts administrator. Golson holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from New York’s New School University and plans to finish his Master of Business Administration in Management from the University of Kansas later this year.

“Grant brings a wide variety of skills to the position including artistic oversight, management, and fundraising,” said Sara Battison, president of the Board of Directors. “His background in fundraising and the arts create the perfect combination of skills to take La Crosse Community Theatre forward.”

Chuck Roth, chair of the board-appointed search committee, said of the search process, “The applicant pool was very strong. We narrowed the field and completed phone interviews, ultimately inviting two for in-person interviews.” He added, “This has been a great process that reflected the passion that the community and each of the search committee members has for La Crosse Community Theatre and its future.”

“I am so excited to lead LCT into the next phase of its life. I can’t wait to become a cheese head!” said Golson.

Golson expects to begin his tenure at LCT on August 29 in La Crosse and plans to host town-hall type meetings with small groups of interested community members later this fall. “I want the opportunity to listen to what people have to say and hear about their vision for La Crosse Community Theatre,” Golson said.
