Theatre N16 has announced the appointment of Scott Ellis as the new artistic director of Theatre N16, as current artistic director Jamie Eastlake takes over the executive directorship of the theatre. This handover takes effect from April 3rd 2017.

Scott has been working at Theatre N16 as programming co-ordinator, and his excelling in the role has allowed the venue to expand its programming and rehearsal room offering over the last six months. His promotion acknowledges the huge impact he has had in his role at Theatre N16, and his work with Merely Theatre in genderblind casting and ambitiously programmed repertory work in mid-scale regional venues speaks to the values that Theatre N16 holds dear.

Scott says: “In such a simple space theatre has to be based on the writing, acting and directing. I’m delighted to take over a space that focuses on the quality of these core factors alongside making sure that emerging theatre makers have a place to put on their work with a realistic potential of financial rewards for all artists involved.”

Jamie Eastlake, current artistic director of Theatre N16, will be stepping into the executive director role at the theatre, focusing on fundraising and theatre management as well as touring and outside productions, either developed at or produced in association with the theatre.

Scott is joined by new associate director and assistant to the artistic director Courtney Larkin, who is also promoted internally from her role as production co-ordinator.
