Presenting Centaur Theatre’s new
Artistic and Executive Director, Eda Holmes
Centaur Theatre’s Board of Directors is pleased to announce the appointment of Eda Holmes as the new Artistic and Executive Director. She assumes the role on August 1, 2017.
The Search Committee was comprised of four board members including Chair Nancy Cummings Gold who explained the process. “With the aid of search firm Odgers Berndtson, we received more than fifty highly qualified National and International applicants. With input from the board, staff, and individuals in the theatre community a comprehensive candidate profile was created. Following extensive interviews, Eda was the unanimous choice of the committee and board. She brings a long and successful track record as a director and administrator in Canadian theatre. The Committee was impressed by her vision and believes, as Centaur approaches its 50th anniversary that she has the skills required to ensure Centaur will offer a unique and compelling platform for English-language theatre in Montreal for the next decade.”
